Belties


Away in a manger
two Belties*
ate hay 
. . .


*These are Belted Galloways, otherwise known as Belties, or as Oreo Cows.
They live locally
and we love them.

  1. We have "belted" cattle, too. Just the black and white, though.

    1. Maybe because we have long, cold winters here, they grow thicker hair . . . (Just guessing. . . )

  3. Not joking here: do they come in white with a black 'belt'? Gotta match the curtains, you know.

    1. Hmm, I don't think so -- I think the belt is always white but the other parts can be black or brown or 'red' or tan . . .

  5. I'd definitely be hugging these Oreos since licking them is not an option. Love the Belties.

    1. They do get regular hugs and kisses from the 4-H-ers who tend them. Very cute.

  7. I've heard a rock with a ring around it is a sign of good luck. I wonder if the same is true for Belties?
