I live out in the boonies and have tractor crossing signs. And there's
this sign with what looks like a guy riding a cow. I think it's
supposed to look like a horse, but it looks like a cow. heh.

"pedestrian crossing" vs "crosswalk" -- we use both here.
And "crosswalk" would mean absolutely nothing to a Brit. As wouldn't,
I would hazard to guess, a "pelican crossing" to you.
How about trying to distinguish between these:
a.. Zebra crossing
a.. Pelican crossing
a.. Puffin crossing
a.. Toucan crossing
a.. Pegasus crossing
(no, I'm not joking, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pedestrian_crossing
Damn, I need to add Koala Crossing, Emu Crossing, Wombat Crossing...
(Yes, they're real - try http://ln-s.net/7fx
