This is about the day I got to meet a very special miniature cow named Moochi.
Moochi, originally from my home state of Minnesota, is a 90% Scottish Highland Mini Cow that lives up in a ranching community in Calabasas.
I pulled up and walked across to the stables to be greeted by the happiest little cow I had ever seen! He had a bath the day before but we brushed him up so he was ready for photos. Moochi is no strangers to visitors and is well known around the community. Everyone has to stop and say Hi and take a photo. Some of his friends include Howie Mendel and a couple of the Kardashian sisters.
After being brushed out, we let Moochi eat some hay and run around the pen, snacking on grapes (which are his favorite, along with oranges and anything in his bottle). He is only about five months old and still has some growing to do. It was fun to watch him go crazy for his milk.
After the snack we strapped on his leash and out we went for a stroll. Walking a miniature cow is a treat – in the crazy world we live in, there’s nothing like a miniature cow to put a smile on people’s faces.
