A California-themed cow, two inspired by the works of classic painters and seven others were voted as the top-10 picks in CowParade SLO and will go up for sale in a live auction next month, event organizers announced Monday.

The rest of the 101-member herd, which has delighted San Luis Obispo County for eight months, will also be “put out to pasture” at a silent auction as part of the charity dinner and sale on May 6 at Santa Margarita Ranch’s Ancient Peaks Winery.

Tickets for the dinner and auction start at $99. For more information, visit www.cowparadeslo.com.
