Anne Wiltafsky, who trains cows near the Swiss city of Zurich, said Luna's talents are not particularly surprising and that, historically, it was quite common to ride cows and use them as workhorses.
"Especially younger ones can jump really well," Wiltafsky said in a telephone interview, adding that cows are lovable companions because they're easygoing, have strong nerves and are "unbelievably devoted" to people they like.
It might be a pipe dream to hope that any "oh hey maybe I shouldn't eat cows anymore" revelations come to people who meet or read about Luna, but one can hope. One can also hope that by "she'll stay my darling," the young lady means "I'll take care of her for the rest of her life."
I actually trained a cow too when I was about that age--a soft-hearted older gentleman at a stable where I took riding lessons at the time bought a calf at a livestock auction. He'd gone there looking for a horse and just fell in love with this little cow instead. So my friend and I taught her to halter, lead, jump over little logs, and "shake hands." She was so sweet and loved to be groomed. Cows are immensely underrated as companion animals!
