What kind of cow is that? It's beautiful in a cowy kind of way.

It's a Belted Galloway. They are pretty, I think. If I were a cow, this is the kind of cow I'd want to be.

I must say that it appears to me it's not so much a matter of the size of the calf, it's the size of the pelvis that matters.

(I don't know if it's relevant, or merely chance, but the word verification to post this comments is "proids".)

Big pelvis, big baby, however you slice it, proids are bound to be the outcome.

We have some Belties that live in our area. My kids call them Oreo cows. Just popped over from Conversion Diary. Nice to meet you!

What I want to know is how long it takes to paint the white stripe on? Makes me think of a Licorice Allsort, sortof.
