Save a Horse, Ride a Cow? [Video]
I feel I was a lucky kid growing up on a farm with not only cows, but horses. Me my brother Ronnie and my sister Shannon all had horses that we showed in 4-H. So seeing this story about 15- year old Regina Mayer from MSNBC caught my eye. But her story is a bit different, she wanted a horse but her parents weren’t able to accommodate her request. What’s a girl to do? Ride a cow? Yes that’s exactly what she did. After hours of training and tons of treats, Luna the cow has made Regina’s riding dreams come true. Luna was born about 2 years ago on the Mayer’s farm just minutes from the Austrian border. Regina and Luna started with walks in the woods (Luna had a halter on). About six months after that, it was time to see how Luna would respond to a saddle. The rest is history. The cow apparently thinks that she is a horse and looking at this footage she seems to be a great replacement.
