An extremely rare 'panda cow' born in Larimer County is believed to be one of only 24 in the world.
The calf is the product of genetic manipulation and was bred as a pet, with a white belt around its middle and black circles around its eyes while for all intents and purposes it is a cow its markings mean that it also visibly resembles a panda.
The so-called "panda cow" born in Larimer County is thought to be one of only about 24 in the world. The male calf named Ben was born Friday morning, according to The (Loveland) Reporter-Heralrd. His mother is a Lowline Angus cow while his father, Donovan, is a panda bull on the farm.

It's very cute, but I can't say I've ever heard of anyone having a cow for a pet. Do they make good pets? I know pigs are intelligent and can be trained, but can cows??

Its probably bred down from dexters for the size, Belted Galloways for the white ring on the belly and maybe some Heriford for the white face.

If you hand feed them from birth, they are like big puppies although toilet training might be the problem I've got 3 out of my herd which are fully tame, theyd give you a big lick but their tounges are so rough I really don't know why.... but I always imagined a cows tounge licking you would feel like a big wet velvety slurp....

I prefer just to look at them. I mean they just like to stand there and that's ok. Like a big giant chilled out dog. Moooooo! Lol

Why would anyone want a cow for a pet? I think they should be bred for petting zoos or something like that.
