This cow looks like half unicorn it has a single horn sticking out of its head. Is this some kind of genetic throw back from unicrons or something..

Strange looking bugger. Probably just a genetic anomaly. Cows occasionally have extra teats, sometimes (rarely) even legs. But this seems pretty rare. The only other ruminate that Ive ever heard of having a horn like prjection from their forehead is a giraffe.

Not trying to be technical but the cow really can't be called a unicorn. ti has three horns so it really would be called a Tricorn

a unicow...how interesting.

yep...this is evolution...breed it and maybe it will pop out a whole new species to be cataloged.

I don't know if it's real or not but I do know a dairy farmer in New Hampshire who has a bull with one horn. Maybe the two should get together???

I reckon it's probably developmental - perhaps chimaeric embryos or something.

If it does turn out to have a genetic basis, I think we can rest assured that there will soon be a breed of cows suffering from all manner of cancers and malformations, but the minor drawbacks of inbreeding won't matter because they'll have a pretty third horn.

If they were all like that, it would certainly make the running of the bulls in Spain more interesting.

Waaah? What does this have to do, even remotely, with chimeric embryos?

Basically the middle horn is infact the horn of a twin cow that has merged with the other cow during the embryonic stage of life... it happens alot with Cows and other livestock, you get cows and donkeys with extra legs, heads coming out of their backs or chests etc. Its two animals fused into one another in various levels of severity, the extra limbs are all that is left of twin and are more or less superfluous. Happens with humans also (ives seen old footage of an asian man who had a second 'face' on the side of his head)... in fact it happens with almost all animals really.

Id say this is what this Tricorn cow is... a cow with the only remaining remnants of its twin that was absorbed into its own body being this central horn.
