Fluffy Cows Become Latest Obsession for Pic Sharing on Internet

The Internet has a new obsession: fluffy cows.

Thanks to a Reddit thread last week, images and videos of the so-called fluffy cows are popping up and making Internet users everywhere say "aww."

The fluffy cows are actually genetically bred show cattle raised at Lautner Farms in Iowa.


"We just redid our website and believe a photo was picked up through a search and then by somebody saying, 'Hey, look at these,' and the domino effect occurred," Lautner Farms spokeswoman Stephanie Steck told "Good Morning America" of the cows' newfound Internet fame.

The fluffy effect does not come naturally though, Steck said.

"It's a lot of hard work to get the cows to be as beautiful as they appear in the pictures," she explained. "Exhibitors have to break them and train them and feed them and blow-dry them and put sheen in their hair. It's similar to humans waking up and taking a shower and getting ready for the day."

The fluffy cows have already attracted a loyal following on Twitter, even inspiring an account of their own, @FluffyCowzz.
