So, We Need to Talk About Cow Cuddling

You’ve heard of cat yogabunny yogagoat yoga and even goat cuddling (that’s your cue for a collective awwww). But what about the latest wellness fad: cow cuddling?

Yep, offered at one Mountain Horse Farm in upstate New York, the “Horse & Cow Experience” gives farm-animal lovers a unique opportunity that “can bring relaxation, healing, awareness about your body language, comfort, mindfulness, build assertiveness, help with overcoming fear, build confidence, lets you be playful and teaches you to set boundaries.” 

According to the website, the experience is custom-tailored to whatever you’d like, and cows are genuinely good cuddle buddies because of their sensitive, intuitive nature. “Cows have a body temperature that is slightly higher than humans and their heart rate is lower than ours. Cuddling up with a cow, feeling that lower heart rate and higher body temperature, is very relaxing.” Um, where do we sign up?!

During the 90-minute session (which costs $300 for two people), you can pet the cows, brush them, play with them and, of course, cuddle with them, and sessions are facilitated by an equine specialist and a licensed counselor.
