Zola

We lost our favorite Mini cow yesterday. Her name was Zola. She was a Zebu cow that we have had for 5 years. We lost her mate Zippy in February, so we no longer have our pair. Our vet said she died of old age, which was comforting to us because we really didn't know how old she was.She was a friendly pet, always there with a nudge to be fed or brushed and she gave us 4 babies we still have. She was such a great mother also.Gentle with her babies, and would let us handle them when we needed to. I know it's not like losing a dog or a cat, but we really have enjoyed our cows because most of them have been friendly and have their own little personalities. We laid her to rest next to Zippy where I hope they get to enjoy eternity in cow pasture heaven. Who would have thought Susan and I could become so attached to these guys. We have enjoyed having them in our lives. Rest in peace my little girl.

    I'm sorry for your loss. It sounds like she had a life of love and was well cared for - that's awsome.

    Oh I'm so sorry, Troy. It doesn't have to be a dog or a cat to become attached. Shawn is right, she had a good life, and you and Susan did that for her.
