Do you remember the first time that you got to experience the snow? I grew up in Southern California, so it wasn't very often that we got to play in the snow. It was always a treat for us to get to go to the snow! Millie and Milo are two mini cows who just were introduced to the snow for the first time at their home, and they loved it!
The Husky Fam shared a video on Wednesday, January 24th of the two cows coming out of the barn and seeing snow for the first time. They decided to start the adventure off with a taste test and approved of it. They got to build a snowman, run and play, and seemed to enjoy their time in the snow. There were so many cute things that happened in the minute long video; which was your favorite?
They were having a blast! I love when Milo did his shimmy and then put his head in the snow. Mini cows are like big puppies and it's always a joy to see baby animals experiencing something for the first time. I'm guessing that they will look forward to spending more time in the snow! @The Husky Fam fans left comments about how adorable the two are, but my favorite comment came from @SK, "These two!!! ...ADORABLE!!! I NEED COWS IN MY LIFE!! AND GOATS! AND KOALAS!! AND RACCOONS!! I needs me a zoo, that's what I need".
Do Mini Cows Make Good Pets?
I think it's safe to say that most people think that mini cows are adorable and that we all immediately want to get one anytime we see them. And Millie was so spoiled when the Husky Fam first got her...she even slept in the house! But do these kinds of cows make good pets? If you have the room for one, the answer seems to be a resounding yes! Not only are these cows super cute, they're also extremely affectionate and loving. They are very gentle and good around children, too. Not to mention the kids can learn how to care for an animal that requires more work than a dog or cat.
The only drawback that I really came across (other than needing a half to full acre for exercise) is that they are expensive to purchase. On average, it will cost you between $2,000 to $5,000 to get one, and that price goes up the more "mini" that you get and also depending on the breed. That's a steep price to pay for a new pet and may be out of a lot of people's price range. Also, farm animals require 24/7 commitment, so if you are a family that travels a lot, this kind of pet may not be right for you. You can board a dog or cat, but they don't have pet hotels for mini cows!
I have several friends who have mini cows, and they all adore them. After doing some research, I couldn't really find a whole lot of reasons not to consider them good pets. If we had the room, I'd certainly getting one!
