”This is my favorite photo in the world - me and Linus, born to a dairy cow and ordered to be killed when the farmer saw he was a male (and thus useless in the dairy industry). A compassionate individual intervened, and he was brought to a sanctuary. I met him when he was a few days old and 60 pounds, and he would always try to sit on my lap. Today, 7 years young and 1500 pounds, he still tries to sit on my lap.”

SWEET SKIES ABOVE WHAT BREED OF COW IS THIS?!?!
Man that’s a silly looking animal
ARE THESE FUZZY COWS
I’M LOSING MY MIND HERE ARE THERE FUZZY COWS OUT THERE
MY GOD. FUZZY COWS.
I really love livestock sites, the only place where you can see the word semen 567658768 times and not be concerned when you see a link called “Youth Support”.
Wondered when you be in…I need bodacious semen. Our Reply: Tuesday, Thanks
anyway, there doesn’t appear to be one breed represented here (beef cattle are are often crossbred to optimize economically desirable qualities in the offspring, e.g., make them as profitable as possible at slaughter), but the fuzzy effect is mostly likely just the product of careful trimming, as indicated by the evenness of the hair length and the fact that their faces are practically shaved). So really, any breed that tends to develop a shaggier coat in the wintertime can be made into a fuzzy cow, if you are devoted enough to their grooming
POODLE COWS THIS IS WHAT MY LIFE NEEDED
DEAR INTERNET, TODAY I MET A GIANT COW
So I went to the zoo today. I hadn’t gone before, mostly because it’s about 3 1/2 hours by transit from where I live. (Not an exaggeration; 110 min there, 100 min back.) But I saw a baby polar bear, a newborn sloth (!!11!), caribou, moose, big ol’ poo-flinging monkeys, and a few gaur, just for starters.
The above is one of those gaur. They’re the largest species of wild cattle in the world; they average 650-1000kg, but can be as big as 1500kg. They’re placid vegetarians like other cows, except while they’re still technically a prey species, whenever an animal thinks eating one is a good idea, they are soon taught otherwise. (Tigers can win by surprise, but if the gaur notice the tiger, the herd moves in a circular form to protect its young and then moves together ‘as a menacing phalanx’.)
ALSO IT TOTALLY MOOED AT ME AND IT WAS A HUGE DEEP BASS MOO OF AWESOME.
Gaur are the newest thing to exist in my world and are so cool. One last fun fact: ‘gaur’ comes from sanskrit, and is actually cognate with the modern English word ‘cow’ (‘gau’).
