Luna the Jumping Cow

This story has been circulating for a couple of weeks but every time I stumble across it I’m reminded of how much I admire this kid’s resourcefulness.

The young girl in Germany badly wanted a horse. Her parents said no, so she started training a cow to allow her to ride her and do jumps. The two-year old bovine also knows a few simple commands and doesn’t seem to mind the saddle.

The girl’s parents say they’re so impressed they might actually buy her that horse. If they do, the girl promises the cow will live out its life pampered and happy. The cow looks impressive in the video but the girl says it’s also very stubborn and will refuse to do anything it doesn’t want to do. I’m relieved that Luna isn’t totally compliant. That might put me off of steak for good!
