DoS Attacks by cow.pasture.com

While we didn't even notice the problem performance-wise, in looking over our server logs, our server was subject over a half dozen 'Denial of Service' (DoS) attacks from 'cow.pasture.com' (209.202.146.60) between April 28th and May 9th. Below is a sample from our logs...

DoS attack by cow.pasture.com

We do love cows in pastures, but we don't love this particular evil cow, so we've blocked it and other computers near it from accessing any of the sites on our server.
