When This Woman Can't Get A Horse, She Trains Another Animal To Fill In

Hannah Simpson, a 19-year-old resident of New Zealand, absolutely loves riding horses, but she found herself in a bit of a pickle. It seems that the horse riding aficionado doesn’t actually have a horse, so that led her to put the thinking cap on to come up with a solution. She documented what she came up with on social media, and she can now count being a viral sensation on her resume.

As the Independent Journal Review shares, she decided that a cow from her family’s farm would do the trick, and she proceeded to form a relationship with the mighty beast. The relationship has evolved to the point that Simpson can ride the cow as if it were a horse, and some awesome pics have been making the rounds to tell the tale of their various adventures together. Users have been absolutely enthralled at this latest version of social media gold.

“Amazing! The cow seems to enjoy this. A bull of cow can jump and they can take on a rider very easily,” said one user.

“I see a wonderful, talented young lady who has done what few others have done. She certainly deserves a horse if the family can support,” added another.

Of course, not everyone was as enthusiastic about Simpson’s unusual relationship with the cow. The haters came out in force, including one particularly angry poster that may want to take a closer look at why they became so upset by Simpson and her cow.

“Oh great! Not only do we take their milk from their babies, send them off to abbattoirs so we can eat them, now we want to ride them. Its bloody unnatural. They're not built to f****n carry us and jump over logs,” the user wrote. “And now we going to have all these bloody idiots thinking it's ok to jump on these poor animals. More animal abuse if there isn't enough of it going on in this world. What next!”

Well now. We’ll assume that user is perhaps scarred from not receiving all of the items on their Christmas list one year, but we certainly appreciate the fact that he feels so passionately about defending cows that may not necessarily be having their voices heard. For the cow in this case, the pics say a thousand words, as it looks like she’s doing just fine when she assumes her alter-ego.
