  1. I can do it with just moving one match stick.
    A better way would be to move the left match stick of the hind legs to above place with the tail forming the V.
    That way, the legs would be up so you rotate the page 180° in the same plane and the exact same cow is now facing right.

  2. I can do it with moving just one match stick with all body parts made with the same number of match sticks.
