This cow soon realized it was lacking in horse power when it tried to keep up with the rest of its ‘herd’ in Arkansas.
Hilarious footage recently shared online shows three horses galloping across a pasture in Mountain View.
Close behind them is a donkey, which seems to have no trouble matching the pace.
The four animals continue to run through the grass and almost out of shot before the cow, named Annabelle, finally lumbers into view – trailing by several seconds.

The bovine struggles to catch up as her companions speed off out of shot, several seconds ahead of her.
The animal’s owner clearly found the scene, originally filmed in March 2017, entertaining.
They recently posted it with the caption: ‘My bottle calf Annabelle trying to keep up with her herd.’
Bottle calves are, as their name suggests, calves who have been raised by hand.
This often occurs after their mothers – usually first-calf heifers or older cows – fail to provide enough milk.
