By RICHARD L. BELISLE Staff Writer, Waynesboro GREENCASTLE, Pa. -- Holy Holstein! There are cows everywhere at Martha Reihart's place. There are plastic cows, stuffed cows, ceramic, cows, metal cows and wooden cows. There's a cow flag hanging off the front porch and a cow in the refrigerator that moos when the door is opened. There are cow signs in and outside the trailer that say things like "cow crossing," and "Home is where the herd is. " Even the outside of Reihart's mobile home on Pa. Route 16 three miles west of Greencastle is painted white with black patches to match the look of a Holstein cow. Rail fences on the corner of her property are painted the same color scheme, as is the well cover, and several large lawn planters.
