Well, folks, the big news today is that the Guinness World's Book of Records has a new entry: the world's smallest cow. Here's a photo of her with her big (normal sized) bull friend:

This is an undated Guinness World Records handout ...

She may look like a baby, but she's 11 years old and has 9 normal-sized calves. Her breed is small -- she's called a "Dexter" cow -- but she's a particularly small version. Did I mention that her name is Swallow? I hope this is a reference to the bird, and not her fate on a plate!
