Cows are adorable, but mini cows just take the cake. There is nothing better than a mini cow.
Okay, maybe one thing. Maybe a fluffy mini cow playing with her first toy ever is just a little better. You can be the judge of that:
Well, it looks like The Husky Fam knows exactly what to post to get me to absolutely lose it. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a cuter cow.
There are two main types of people who own mini cows:
- Farmers who want products like meat or milk (typically have tons of space).
- Regular people who want to have cows for fun (often have less space).
Both types of people can definitely have happy, healthy cows. When you have a ton of space for the cows to run, graze, and play, you don’t need to purchase as much artificial enrichment: they can entertain themselves with the outdoors and each other.
If you’re just a regular person who has some extra space and you’d like to have a cow, though, you can make it work by giving them some toys to play with. The toy in the video is a ball attached to a rope that Millie, the mini Highland cow, can bat around. It’s also apple scented, which provides a whole new level of stimulation: it’s a whole new smell.
Ideally, when you have a cow, you have at least two. They’re very social and love to play. When this video was made, Millie was a lone cow, which meant she’d need some extra love and enrichment from her humans. However, since this video was posted, her parents got her a brother. He named himself Cheesy, and they’re already besties!
