Cow Idioms

An Idiom is a saying that has become popular not by logic but through years of cultural usage. There are many idioms about cattle; below are some of the most popular ones.

“Don’t have a Cow” – used to tell someone to calm down or chill out – most often toward someone who overreacts to a situation. The origins of the saying are unclear, but there is said to be an old British saying along the same lines, but using “kittens” instead of “cows.”

“Till the Cows come home” – is used to describe an indefinite time frame or a long wait. It is thought to have originated in the Scottish Highlands when cattle would graze for months during the Summer before they would slowly make their way home come Fall.

“Don’t cry over spilled milk” – while the origins are up for debate, this idiom has been used for centuries. It means there is no use worrying over something that has already occurred because the past cannot be changed.

“Holy Cow!” – is an expression of surprise or excitement, meaning “wow!”. The idiom seems to have picked up steam among major league baseball announcers in the early 1900s.

“Take the Bull by the horns” – this idiom means to tackle an unpleasant or challenging task head-on. It likely originated from the early American West.

“Like a Bull in a china shop” – is a quote from an 1834 novel by Frederick Marryat and has since come to describe a clumsy person or someone who breaks things or otherwise causes chaos.

“As awkward as a Cow on a crutch” – though the origins are unclear, this idiom is used to describe someone clumsy, uncoordinated, or off-balance. “Strong as a Bull” – was used in a 1950’s sitcom and has become a popular way of describing someone of great physical strength.

“If you mess with the Bull, you get the horns” – the origins are unclear, but this idiom may have been born when the actor Paul Gleason spoke the words in the movie, The Breakfast Club. The saying explains that if you provoke someone to anger, you should not be surprised by an aggressive reaction.
