    Ha! I was always told cows have udders, women have boobies, and horses have "bags." lol. All of the above have teats, though.

    They are called udders and teats are the same thing as nipples. Horses have two udders with one teat each and are located in basically the same place as a cow's.

    Different parts of the country they call it different things. But it's an udder, and them's teats. Unless you're REALLY an old farmer, and then they spell it with two t's and an i.
