Even though cows are not the first animal that comes to our mind when we think of pets, but you will be surprised to know that cows are equally affectionate, friendly, and cute as any other canine or feline. Not only that, but cows are also very intelligent animals. In fact, scientists have said that cows can experience emotions ranging from love to anger. Just like dogs, they give kisses, get curious, play with a ball, and enjoy back rubs. Also, there is a huge variety to choose from. From huge fluffy cows to tiny miniature cows, there is an adorable animal for all of us to shower our love.
If you are one of those people who love cows but are worried that they will take up a lot of space then we have to tell you everything about miniature cows. Don't worry if you don't have enough room for a herd of big cows. These miniature cows don't take up so much space. And don't even get me started about the cuteness factor. These miniature cows measure around 36 to 42 inches at the hip, which means they are about half the size of a full-size cow.
There are multiple farms in the US that specialize in breeding pet mini cows. As reported by Loveable Little Ones, there is a cattle breeder in Colorado who stated that mini cows are "exceptional pets that demonstrate a great deal of affection, are very social, and are easy to take care of." He said, "Miniature cattle are a great inexpensive way to teach your children responsibility, and some very useful agricultural fundamentals. Their small size makes miniature cattle easy and safe to work with for any enthusiast."
Unlike full-sized cows, these mini-cows do not require expensive handling equipment. They cost somewhere around $1,800 to $3,500 depending on the size, markings, and color. So if you plan on owning or cuddling a mini moo, then we can further strengthen your resolve after you see these pictures of cows, mini-cows, and how adorable they are. However, we'd like to mention that it is not easy taking care of a cow, so unless one is trained to handle them responsibly, it is advised not to get them.
