Cow tipping is a term that is probably invented by a country boy trying to impress his cityslicker friends. Cow tipping is probably also originated from tipping drunken cowboys for a laugh.
Technically, a group of kids get into a pasture or corral with some cows, sneak up on one and suddenly rush and push it over. Another method is grabbing the legs of the cow and heaving them out from under it.
Most people who don't really know about cow tipping are convinced that this is fact. In fact cow tipping is a myth, for several reasons:
1. Most cows weigh over 1000 lbs and stand over 5 feet tall
2. They are not inanimate objects that are easy to tip over
3. Cows are more agile and aware of their surroundings than most people think
4. Cows can respond to being pushed by pushing back, simply by bracing their four legs against the tippy two-legged slow-thinking creatures.
5. Cows do not sleep standing up
6. Cows can kick, run, jump, or charge and send a person flying over the fence with her head. They also happen to run faster than a human.
7. Cows can adjust their center of gravity simply by the way they stand or where they stand.
8. Cows have a lower center of gravity than humans
9. Not all cows are dumb enough to let a bunch of drunk, tittering teenage boys near them; most'll take off if they don't recognize any of the boys.
Cow tipping, often considered an urban legend, is a pastime allegedly common in rural areas in which participants sneak up on an upright sleeping cow and then push it over for amusement. There are factors which make the possibility unlikely at most; one such factor being that cows (as with most herd-prey animals) only take irregular naps throughout the day, often surrounded by awake members of the herd, making them almost impossible to sneak up on. One factor towards the likelihood of cow tipping being in existence is the fact that Florida considered placing a ban on the pastime, indicating that there is at least enough evidence in favor of cow tipping's existence to present legislation. Some variants of this urban legend state that the cow is then unable to get up. Basing on the cow's weight and body structure, calculations of the necessary force show that the tipping by pushing is physically impossible for a single person. Studies have shown that it would require four or five people, and it is unlikely that a group of that size could sneak up on a sleeping cow. The amount of force and feasibility of tipping would also be highly dependent upon the stance of cow at the moment. However cow tipping may work not through physical force, but rather the cow being startled into losing balance itself. Adding to this problem is the fact that cattle, unlike horses, do not sleep while standing.
Maybe cow flopping is the same as cow tipping...
Not sure if you can tip other animals, but cow tipping is where you sneak up on an unsuspecting upright cow and push it over. Its purely for entertainment purposes.
No, because the cow goes over on its side not onto its legs.
yes, cow tipping
You could, but you wouldn't have great success with it.

First of all I don't think you will be getting close enough to a moose without significant harm to even touch the 6.5 foot average beast. But theoretically it is the same as cow tipping.
It is not possible to say exactly how many reports of cow tipping were reported in Kansas last year when no such figures have been released to the public. It is a serious problem across many states.
hunting, mining, and harvesting timber. And cow-tipping.
One of the factors that are affecting the population of cows is,sadly, cow tipping..
Cows stand up when they are sleeping, Usually, people go in the nighttime to do it. It is possible and sometimes it usually gets injured or killed.
Nope. Besides, cow-tipping is an urban myth, and something that is impossible to do, even at the dead of night.
There is no definitive origin or known meaning to "nothing tips like a cow." Many feel that it relates to "cow-tipping." They believe that the expression refers to how sturdy cows are and how impossible it is for them to turn back over, meaning that nothing is as strong and helpless when tipped over.
No. They just get up right away right after they go down. Besides, cow tipping is a myth, and not something that is possible to do, even when drunk.

Yes, there is such as thing as sheep tipping. The difference with sheep is that it is more like rolling them onto their backs that it is tipping them over.
It's an urban myth, foundations not known, but a myth that details the action of a person running up to and slamming into the side of a cow and this supposedly is supposed to make it fall over. However those who have been around cattle before can tell you this is simply not possible.
In truth and reality, no. Cow-tipping is an urban legend that was likely started by some country boys telling a tall tale to their clueless city-raised friends about how cows can be snuck up on at the dead of night when they're sleeping and tipped over onto their sides simply by one person pushing it over. Upon being dared to do this, it is highly likely that these attempts to do any cow-tipping were in vain, resulting only in a bunch of dirty clothes, a few bruises, and wounded pride from the humility of failing to do such a thing and from being laughed at by the story-tellers themselves.
