Cows are bringing the fashion of Grandma’s knitted hats back. Thanks to the company Moo Muffs, you can now order a pair of these muffs for your calf.
If only we looked this adorable when we received grandma’s handcrafted gifts when we were children. Here are some of of favorite pictures of valves wearing earmuffs:
Calves are most likely to be affected by frostbite, so farmers are protecting their sensitive ears with earmuffs. Calves are cute enough as it is, but throw some earmuffs on them and everyone gets super excited.
It is extremely important to protect calves from the cold as it can lead to frostbitten parts as well as hypothermia and even death.
Their extremities are mostly at risk. Places like ears and tails can have their appearance changed forever if they are not protected.
Newborn calves are at the most risk because they are wet and have a large body surface compared to their mass.
Wait, hold up! Is that a bottle AND homemade earmuffs?! Does it get any cuter than that? Awwwww!
Ok, back to the facts… Calves are not fully capable of maintaining their body temperature the first few hours of life.
Weather conditions have a great effect on the risk of frostbite and hypothermia.
Humidity and wind are the biggest factors in lowering outside temperatures. Both will lower the outside temperature dramatically…
So farmers need to stay vigilant in making sure these babies are protected.
Even the calves at the North Pole are comfortable now.
I can’t tell if this guy is proud of his or not.
The fashion possibilities are endless! This waterproof material is lined with fleece for extra protection.
It warms my heart that farmers care about their calves to this level. These must be some very content cows. Sounds like other animals everywhere might be getting jealous.
