She was reputed to be the largest Asian cow in Europe and was a lot bigger than the other cows in the herd and therefore the matriarch. She was a stunning animal who I had a great relationship with. She was even bigger than the bull at the time who was Luka that is now at Terra Natura theme park, Benidorm.
