A strange calf has been born in Australia with a laughing ‘smiley’ on its back.
This little calf is a breed of Holstein Friesian cow from Holland who is now being called ‘Happy’ after having a smiling smiley on his back.
According to ABC News, ‘Happy’ was born on a farm in Ripplebrook, West Gippsland. The farm is owned by Megan and Barry Koster, who raise about 700 calves each year.
“We’ve seen sevens or stars or weird markings on calves’ foreheads before, but we’ve never seen a smiley face,” says Megan Koster.
When Happy was born, Barry Koster noticed that he had various markings on his body, but was surprised to see that the cub’s back had a smiling face.
He took a picture of it and sent it to his wife, to which Mrs. Koster said, “I couldn’t believe it at first.” At first I zoomed in on the picture to see if any of our employees had put a mark on it.
“It will now go to the bulls and become a little pet,” he said. Some of our employees are willing to adopt him.
Lardner Park Chief Executive Officer Craig Debnam says, “Happy has a lot of energy and is a very agile and healthy calf.”
“He is feeding very well and looks like he will be very happy in the enclosure at Lardner Park.”
40,000 to 50,000 people will come to see it this weekend, hopefully Happy will bring a smile to everyone’s face.
