Cow Thinks She is a Horse

German teenager Regina Mayer, 15, wanted her parents to  buy her a horse.  When they refused,* she found a creative way to  get what she wanted.
She trained* a cow to act like* a horse!
She started training the cow, Luna, shortly after she was born.  She started her off with  short walks and putting a saddle* on her.  She remembers her first ride.*  “She was really gentle* and walked normally but after a couple of meters she wanted me to  get off.  You could see she got a bit peeved.*
Now she can run and even jump like a horse, but she only does it when  she wants to.
