  1. I have heard these cows called Oreo Cows,because they look like the oreo cookies.Dark at both ends and a layer of white frosting in the middle.

    1. Ja, en ik vind het zo leuk dat er een roodbonte bij staat. In België heeft het provinciaal domein Bokrijk(?) volgense Wikipedia een bescheiden fokprogramma van lakenvelders opgestart. Men treft dit runderras aan in de weilanden van het domein alsook in het openluchtmuseum.

  14. Interesting cows! Not sure I have ever seen any with that particular marking. They do look like they are wearing belts and, as one commenter said, like Oreos!

  16. One day I was driving a country road north of Ocala and I had to stop for I saw small herd of these cows. I'd never seen them before. Not only that but in the midst of the was a half-dozen zebras. I stopped to take some photos and posted them some time ago. Then they were all gone and I've not seen either the cows or the zebras since.

  17. Fascinating. I had no idea such markings were common somewhere. The “oreos” comment was so apt!

    At first I thought they were all wearing foundational undergarments to hide their bovine midriff bulge.
