Regina Mayer from Laufen, Germany always wanted a horse. This 15-year-old was raised on her family’s farm, and ever since she was young, she desired to own a horse. But when her parents didn’t indulge her wish, she thought of a really unusual alternative. It might sound weird and even downright crazy, but this teenager somehow managed to train a cow!
You are not going to believe it until you see this for yourself! Regina selected a well-tempered cow from her family’s farm and named her Luna. She tried to establish a regular human interaction by taking the cow on several walks in the woods. She even got her accustomed to riding equipment. Slowly but surely, she taught herself to ride Luna, and taught Luna to be acquainted with her.
By implementing an extensive routine of grooming, petting, and riding practices, Regina trained Luna to follow commands and jump obstacles within two years! I think this is proof that cows are probably smarter than we give them credit for. Luna seems to be having the time of her life performing with Regina!
I have to give Regina credit for her innovative decision to make do with what she had, a cow, and mold it into what she really wanted. She and Luna clearly have a very special bond, showing that differences across species really don’t matter.
