Awwww….lookit this leetle cow from Yorkshire. That must be her husband she’s standing with.  It’s a wonder she doesn’t get smooshed. 😛

LONDON – A minuscule cow with a taste for contemporary music has been named the world’s smallest by the Guinness World Records book. Guinness said the sheep-sized bovine from the West Yorkshire region of northern England measures roughly 33 inches (84 centimeters) from hind to foot.

The 11-year-old cow is named Swallow and her owner, Caroline Ryder, said she would spend Thursday either grazing with her herd or listening to BBC radio in her cowshed.

Swallow is a Dexter cow, a breed known for its diminutive stature, but is small even by Dexter standards.

She already has nine regular-sized calves and is pregnant with her 10th. Guinness said her youngest calf has already grown larger than she is.

Guinness World Records 2011 was published Thursday in the U.K.

    She’s tiny! With her short little legs, she reminds me of Kemi Cat.

    I wonder why she is so small but her offspring are not. She is so cute. I thought she was a baby until I read what you wrote.
