Milka Lookalike Calf Born In Serbia
Holy Cow have you ever seen a purple Cow before?
On the 28th December a dead ringer for the Cow which advertises Milka chocolates was born in Serbia.
When it was first born aparently, it looked like any other calf.....until the Mother began licking it. Then all was to become clear. It began to look like the Cow in the Milka adverts.
It is a cute looking thing though, you must agree.
Personally I don't think you could say it looks like the Cow in the advert, it doesn't say Milka on it!
I know what you are thinking. You're thinking to yourself, now come on Steve everybody knows that the writing on the side will appear when it get's a little older. Of course, how stupid of me!
How did it become this colour?
It is thought that this Calf was born the pale lilac colour because of genetic crossbreeding.
There are a number of crosses which can make wheat colour as well as red and yellow. Can you imagine a red cow?
When I first saw this weird coloured animal my first thought was that it was down to what it's Mother had been eating which had caused this. I keep pond Fish and the colour of Koi Carp tend to change and become more vivid with certain types of food and at different times of the year. Obviously this doesn't apply to cattle unless they are partial to Milka chocolates.
As you will be aware you can get a multitude of Milka chocolates including now white chocolate along with Milka hot chocolate. I bet it was the hot chocolate at bed time that did it. Mmmm.
A one off.
Seemingly this is the first ever purple coloured Cow ever seen in the world before. As you can imagine it has become quite an attraction in the town with local children turning up everyday to take a look at this incredible animal.
Shortly after the birth of this one another farmer was claiming that he too had a purple Calf. A headline in one of the local newspapers read 'Pull the udder one' Ha ha, very funny.
Holy Cow....it's purple
Other chocolate brands are available
Obviously Milka chocolate is delicious but I would like to point out that other brands of chocolate are available. I don't want you to think that the purpose of this article was to solely promote Milka chocolate as this is not my intention. Milka chocolate, it has to be said is really good though and worth a mention when writing an article about chocolate.
My favourite chocolate at the moment is Famous Grouse chocolate. It is a milk chocolate and has the flavouring of Famous Grouse Whisky. This just happens to be my favourite Whisky also.Pure heaven. I had never tasted this chocolate until my eldest son bought me a bar of the chocolate at Christmas. Yummy
Strange but true.
Other freaky animals.
It takes all sorts to make a world. Where are the parents of this small child as he cuts out the middle man, like the local shop, or even his Mom and get's a drink direct from the manufacturer. Yuck!
This 2 headed Calf looks likely to survive. After having a stressful birth Vet's had it sedated as it has not been able to stand up due to the weight of the 2 heads.
This one is my personal favourite and truly is a Holy Cow!
Born with a white cross on it's head this Cow looks the business.
Serbia not being satisfied to boast a purple Cow can also boast about a Cow which gave birth to not just one but 4 Calves. And 4 Bullocks as well. This must be a record.It makes my eyes water just thinking about it.
