Unless you live on or near a farm, you probably don’t have much day-to-day contact with cows. At most, you’ve probably seen them grazing in a field while you zoom by on the interstate at 70 mph. Without meeting them, it’s easy to think of cows as big, dumb, lugs.

But cows are so much more than that! Anyone who’s met a cow knows that they’re gentle sweethearts who enjoy giving and receiving affection–basically puppies, but about 1,500 lbs heavier. If you don’t believe me, check out these 15 beautiful bovines. (via Bored Panda.)
