Fuzzy Wuzzy was a...cow? When you picture a soft and cuddly animal, an image of a cow is never the first one that pops into your mind. Usually, it's something like a tiny kitten or a clumsy little puppy. However, fluffy cows do exist—and they're pretty darn cute. These adorable bovines have longer locks than your average black and white cow, giving them a unique look.
The five fluffy cow breeds are Highland cattle, Belted Galloway cattle, Galloway cattle, Chillingham cattle, and South Devon cattle. Highlands are the most well-known, easily recognizable by their long and curly hair. Galloway cattle came from southwestern Scotland in the 1700s into the early 1800s. They're a tough, adaptable breed, which made them a hot commodity between Scotland and England. Belted Galloway came from the Galloway part of Scotland and developed their hardiness thanks to rough coastal terrain. Chillingham cattle are a British cow breed with curly hair, large horns, and feisty personalities. Chillingham Park is a place dedicated to a herd of 100 wild Chillingham cattle whose lineage can be traced back to ancient British cows who once roamed the area. South Devon cattle came from Devon and Cornwall counties in southwest England. The breed made its way to North America in 1969 before moving into Canada and South Africa in the '70s.
