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.
Haha, that's cute!
I've never seen or heard of these before! interesting!
Zijn dat de gekende Lakevelders? Mooi hoorgroetjes Geert
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.
Hello, I have seen cows like this somewhere. They are pretty, I love the cattle. Happy Wednesday, enjoy your day!
Thanks Eileen! Have a nice day!
Thank you Beth.
I am delighted to learn something new about cattle; have not been aware of "belted cows" before. They are beautiful!
Kate here is a interesting link for you: http://www.motherearthnews.com/homesteading-and-livestock/raising-cattle/dutch-belted-heritage-livestock-zeylaf.aspx
What unique looking cows. I like the way you framed this photo.
Thank you Bill. I was standing on a dike, looking down on the cows.
Those cows look cool! I don't remember seing things like that before.
They are cool, yes!
De Lakenvelders zijn hier in de provincie Groningen ook nog te zien. Een bijzonder ras!
Ja, ik vind het elke keer weer mooi als ik ze zie.
I've never seen cows like that, and cows are my favorite farm animal. Thank you! The photo is set beautifully with the distant trees and the one in the foreground. Excellent!
A peaceful scene.
Ja, that is the good word for it: peaceful. Thank you Karen.
Such beautiful animals and your photo (and the video) is so calming.The little birds chirping made me smile. :)Thank you for sharing and have a lovely evening!
Thhe only thing we heard were: the tires of our bike in the mud, the birds and the mosquitoes
I always love seeing these cows!
Me too, Michelle. Thanks for writing a comment.
Een prachtig Hollands plaatje. Wat een leuke koeien zijn dit.Groettie van Patricia
Ja hè, echt wel!
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!Visiting from WWEricka from A Quiet Girl’s Musings…
Cute, I like the thought. Because I love Oreos. Let's call them Oreo cows.
I think of seen cows like these before but can't think of where. I like Ruth's explanation. : )
Me too :)
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.
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.
Wonderful photo! I love cows.
Thanks for taking the time to visit and pass a comment! Dank je wel!
