    The owners of Manolo Blahnik own a farm in Litchfield .

    Everyone needs a hobby, and for the owners of the U.S. arm of Manolo Blahnik, that hobby is decidedly less glamorous than making jewel-encrusted shoes.

    Although apparently, running Arethusa Farm in Litchfield, Connecticut does have its more glamorous elements. NBC Connecticut got an inside peek at the workings of the farm, and in addition to the regular milking process, the Manolo Blahnik cows also -- surprise, surprise -- get gussied up for show. As one of the owners describes in the video, "We do think of our cattle as ladies .... They kind of do walk like models on the runway." Just don't tell that to Naomi Campbell.
