Tell us about the “Cow Poly Moostang”…
The Cow Poly Moostang was designed for the Office of the President and inspired by our very own live mustang mascot, Chase. The cow incorporates Cal Poly’s colors, green and gold, in a pattern intended to look like traditional cow spots from a distance. As the viewer gets closer to the cow, the spots transform into gold mustangs.
