Oreo cookie cows? Yes, there are "belted" bovines out there (you're not
seeing things!). What kind of belted cows are there? According to the
"A Field Guild to Cows" there are several possibilities. One is the Dutch
Belted. These bovines are relatively small in stature (for a cow) and have a
smooth coat. They are black on both ends and have a white belt around the
middle that is at least 6" wide. Another possibility is a belted Galloway
(not all Galloways are belted). They can be brownish black, red or dun.
They are stockily built and in the winter are shaggy. Finally, Welsh Blacks
and Swiss Browns can be belted, but these are rarer.
