“Luna” cow can jump like a horse? Well, that appears to be the case for “Luna,” a Germany-residing cow who thinks she’s a horse and behaves like one too.
Schoolgirl Regina Mayer, who lives on a farm in Laufen, Germany, didn’t worry when her parents couldn’t afford to buy her a horse – she just trained her cow to ride instead, reports USA Today.
The resourceful 15-year-old spent hours training Luna and the pair now go on long rides together. Luna can also jump over hurdles.
After hours of arduous training, the pair regularly embark on long rides through the southern German countryside and do jumps over a makeshift hurdle of beer crates and painted logs, USA Today reports.
“She thinks she’s a horse,” Regina joked. “When she wants to do something, she does it, when she doesn’t, she doesn’t. And she’s often very headstrong but can also be really adorable.”
At least she’s cute to Regina. To her fellow bovines and real horses, the jury is still out, reports USA Today.
Regina said, “Cows don’t like her. They’re jealous because she always gets goodies.”
And the horses? They either run away in fear or, more to the talented cow’s liking, they hop the trail and ride along with Luna and Regina.
