No, it's not a monkey, don't be silly . . . I have a cow in the basement.

Um . . . here's the code for that list:

<option value="horse">Horse</option>
<option value="cow">Cow</option>
<option value="monkey">Monkey</option>
<option value="dog">Dog</option>

Any number of option tags can be added inside the select element to populate the available options.
