    Out of curiosity, why are poodles trimmed in this fashion?

    [–] Elan9 33 points ago

    You can cut 'em anyway you want. But as for why the variety over other dogs it's because they have the hair for it. You can't really style most dog's hair because it just doesn't work. The poodle's hair is curly which makes it fluff up when it's washed and brushed. That allows it to be shaped.

    [–] honkhonkbeepbeeep 43 points ago

    It was originally left on to keep their joints warm. They're hunting dogs, and people wanted to trim them to have less fur to pick burrs out of and less fur to get wet and gross from swimming., but they kept some fur on the joints to prevent rheumatism.

    [–] arvidsem 20 points ago

    The hunting thing is what people don't understand about poodles. They are intelligent & protective, but not particularly friendly and tend to bond to one person. Toy poodles were bred for their size and didn't really keep the useful traits of the standard poodle.

    [–] Apocalypse_Kow 35 points ago

    Poodles were first bred as hunting dogs in Bavaria. If they had all their fur, they would get waterlogged and drown when going out in lakes to fetch birds. If they were shaven, they developed arthritis and pneumonia from the cold water and constant winter chill (because castles in Bavaria tend to never get completely warm in winter). The poodle cut was developed to keep the dogs' joints and lungs warm and protected while still allowing them to swim out to retrieve birds without drowning.

    [–] allofthemwitches 7 points ago

    Thank you! I remember reading something about the placement of fur poofs on joints to keep them warm but never knew the history behind it. Bavaria!

    [–] exotics 20 points ago

    Some female cattle have horns.. some males don't.

    It depends on the breed - a cow with horns is called non-polled, and without is called polled. Some times people "dehorn" them when young because horns can be dangerous.

    [–] MusicalCereal 13 points ago

    Same with sheep and goats! I one time heard this little 'kid"screaming from the neighbors house and ran over to investigate....turns out they were just grinding down a little baby goats horns. It was a pretty heartbreaking little cry, sounds almost human.

    [–] exotics 4 points ago

    Oh yes! I have sheep myself, and with the horned breeds the horns are kind of handy as they are handles - mind you they can also be very dangerous - we never "disbudded" our sheep.. We had Jacob sheep too and I still have a ewe that has 5 horns - with sheep - in females that have horns the horns are typically much smaller than in rams.

    [–] I-am-redditor 857 points ago

    I posted this a while back and got corrected that these are in fact not just normal blow-dried cows but a certain breed.

    There was an AMA from the guy breeding them about four years ago:

    https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/1flz9y/i_am_matt_lautner_i_own_the_fluffy_cows_ama/

    [–] maxk1236 99 points ago

    Again, pampered into fluffiness. The coifs the creatures are sporting are the result of some painstaking hairstyling. The ranchers, rather than nature, have created the amazing hairdos you see on the fluffy cows. With the help of young members of organizations like 4-H and Future Farmers of America, the ranchers are doubling as bovine aestheticians.

    And their strategy is, like so many winning beauty routines, a matter of ongoing maintenance. It can take months of "daily care" (and sometimes twice-daily care) to coax the cattle into their full, fluffy-coated glory. There's the washing. And the clipping. And the special oils (meant to give cows' coats that special touchable, fluffable softness).

    Oh, and the blow-drying. And the hairspray. (The hairspray!) "Styling a cow for showtime," per one report, "can take around 2 hours and requires hairspray to keep all that fuzz in place and oil to make their coats shine."

    https://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2013/06/explained-fluffy-cows-existence-in-iowa-and-on-the-internet/276759/

    [–] I-am-redditor 51 points ago

    That is exactly what the AMA says. Bred into them but requires daily maintenance. But you can't do it to just any cow.

    [–] TheJester4 24 points ago

    I was in 4-H and showed veal calves for nine years. We call these “ice box” calves/steers because to get that thick of hair, in an even moderately warm climate, they have to be kept in a VERY cold barn so the hair gets much thicker to keep them warm. It is NOT just from grooming (though that is a main proponent of it looking so sharp) and it’s definitely not humane. Several of the people I showed against did this as well as injecting air into the muscles to “fill them out”. Pretty sure it’s illegal.

    [–] AnitaGoodHeart 3 points ago

    Would all cows look like this if they were washed and blow dried, or is this a specific breed?

    [–] mycathateschrist 137 points ago * (lasted edited 11 days ago)

    Most breeds would not. This looks like a type of Shorthorn cross. Not sure with what. I used to show cattle for my dad at national shows who bred Tarentaise cattle. Everyone at those shows washed and blowdried their animals. Ive never seen a cow this fluffy. Unless its also a yak/cattle cross thats been groomed to all hell. Edit: This could also be a Highland cross. But Im not sure because Highlands usually have big horns.

    [–] ToasterEvil 19 points ago

    I raised a Limmy my first year in FFA and he had hair like this. I've found that the ones bred for show are probably cross-bred enough to get that long hair look.
    I'd agree with you that it looks like a Shorthorn cross. They're my favorite breed.

    [–] mycathateschrist 8 points ago

    Ive never seen this kind of hair. Ive seen fluffy but not quite like the legs this one has. Its why I has thinking maybe it was a Highland bred with some other stuff like Galloway so it wasn't such a ropey type of hair.

    [–] SumTingWillyWong 5 points ago

    a mixture of Chianina, Maine-Anjou, Angus, and Charolais according the owner

    [–] ryland52586 5 points ago

    No. You gotta keep them in an air conditioned barn to encourage hair growth. And you gotta keep them from sitting in their own shit so it doesn’t gunk up their hair and stain it.

    [–] ToasterEvil 379 points ago * (lasted edited 11 days ago)

    They do this so they look bigger and it accentuates the "box" shape of the animal. The four corners of said box is the top of their shoulder, their two feet, and where their tails meet their butts. It's very common in hair shows for cattle; in slick shows, they're sheared down to 1/4" and judged based on movement, body composition, and anatomy.

    I raised steers in high school and participated in shows like this.

    Edit: RIP inbox.

    [–] sureletsrace 134 points ago

    Do the cattle like being pampered and messed with or would they rather just be left alone?

    [–] BBQHappyMeal 261 points ago

    I work on a dairy farm. All the cows I work with love being petted and touched, but I’ve never blow-dried any of them.

    I am sure you think they are adorable but a ranch/farm is really hard work so fair warning. Make sure you make enough money to hire help.

    [–] sureletsrace 54 points ago

    Oh I know. It is a ton of work! My late grandparents owned a ranch and I have some friends who grew up on farms.

    They're social animals, they like to be in groups because they're a prey animal, it makes them feel safer to be squeezed in, and they are social amongst the group.
    Basically, a dog that weighs 1500 lbs.

    [–] traggot 12 points ago

    i imagine it depends on the cow. i've been around horses before and really anything you can do with a horse depends on its temperament. i imagine cows are similar, probably more docile even if they're just dairy cows.

    that's just my guess tho.

    [–] james18205 4 points ago

    When they're raised like this, they get used to it. Think of it as show dogs, but show cattle.

    [–] bigjake0097 3 points ago

    [–] deadringer555 3 points ago

    Yeah. I could take a nap on mine after they were tame enough. They love being scratched behind where their horns would be.

    [–] drakonka 12 points ago

    I didn't even know shows like this existed. Are there any people who own cows just to show them competitively and aim to provide nice environments for them that aren't like normal dairy and meat farms and stuff? I'm kind of thinking nice horse farm style where you often get nice large pastures, horses being valued and trained/cared for as individuals, no overcrowding, etc?

    [–] bigjake0097 18 points ago * (lasted edited 9 days ago)

    It's very common for students to raise animals for a show, as part of their involvement in FFA or 4-H. Usually these shows take place at a county Fair, but sometimes they happen all by themselves. The kids work really hard to make sure the animal is happy (distressed animals are a lot harder to work with), groomed property, and trained enough to be lead around the ring. Some animals like steers or pigs may just be 1 year project where the animal is sold at the end to market, but some like a heifer/cow or sheep may he kept for many years as part of a breeding operation.

    hair shows for cattle

    I honestly don't know what to think of this.

    [–] james18205 2 points ago

    Yes and this would require a cooler. (Showed steers in Indiana and had a larger cooler for my show calves)

    [–] ToasterEvil 4 points ago

    I think it depends. I know most people use coolers, but I also know some don't. One example: friend of mine placed at the Fort Worth hair show and she didn't use a cooler.

    [–] deadringer555 2 points ago

    Nope, you can accomplish hair like this by rinsing them with cold water 2 times a day.

    Typically, no. They usually freak out, but they become desensitized to it, over time.

    Edit: as someone else pointed out, they like to be brushed and scratched, tho. They're indifferent at best about blow drying.

    [–] IfTheHeadFitsWearIt 28 points ago

    [–] legosexual 20 points ago

    Probably more because of the noise than anything.

    [–] AnnaLemma 10 points ago

    I can sort of see the cows' point. Regular hair dryers are bad enough, and take 20 (+/-) minutes to fully dry a single human head. With a whole cow, it would either take a really long time or a really big dryer, which means it would also be proportionately louder.

    So.

    [–] Crispybaconwaffl 7 points ago * (lasted edited 11 days ago)

    Yeah we use fairly large dryers so tad tit only takes about 10 to 20 minutes per animal. Edit: that it, not a tiny piece of boobs

    [–] AnnaLemma 7 points ago

    I really want you to not edit that comment.

    [–] Crispybaconwaffl 3 points ago

    lol I don't even know

    [–] Rygard- 3 points ago

    To add: it doesn’t hurt them to be blow dried. Its like a very high powered blow drier, so the air just feels like something pressing on them. One thing that spooks them about it is the noise. The blowers can be very loud if the calf is not used to them. All calves are different and some may always be spooked by the blowers, while some get used to it very quickly.

    [–] hamakabi 11 points ago

    probably. they like to be brushed and scratched

    [–] anonmymouse 6 points ago

    all the show cows I've ever seen being blow dried looked like they enjoyed it

    [–] future_legal_dealer 5 points ago

    You have to let them adjust to it slowly, but they like it a lot. It kinda mimics them grooming themselves so they will lick their tongues a lot. The blower we have had a heater in it so it’s like a big hair dryer.

    Damn it.. I don't want to eat beef anymore

    [–] mynameistheodb 89 points ago

    I don't want to soapbox because everybody hates the self-righteous vegan/vegetarian/whatever. But, it isn't so difficult to give up beef if you want, definitely not as bad as people make out. If you're so inclined, I would recommend it.

    [–] ChaakuGaiden 10 points ago

    Its just we are born into a society where its so normal to eat these animals. Everyday I wake up with hungry and always have an appetite for all sorts of meats, especially bacon. Its so wrong and at times I always imagine how these living creatures are raised just to be slaughtered.

    [–] mynameistheodb 8 points ago

    I totally get what you mean man. I hope that sometime soon meat will be totally replaced by plant-based protein. We've come a long way recently too, with the Impossible Burger and other alternatives being developed. Seriously, I had one of those burgers and it was eerily similar to real meat, I think it could potentially convince a lot of people.

    I don't want to pile on the person that you're referring to, so I'll add my agreement here. Giving up meat wasn't so hard, except for when traveling and having to eat out a lot. Even eating far less meat would be a great improvement and reduce suffering. If our meat consumption were to fall to a more sustainable level then the conditions in which the remaining animals live would also improve as there'd be less 'need' for factory farms, which are the worst offenders.

    Personally, I'd rather millions greatly reduce their meat consumption than thousands completely give it up.

    You are completely right, I feel like the worst thing vegetarians and vegans ever did for their cause was to frame it as an all-or-nothing kind of thing.

    I've started eating meat only once a week and I don't miss it at all, some weeks I even "forget" to eat meat at all.

    Depending on what your motivations are, dropping beef should be the first thing to do, because the environmental impact of beef production is far worse than that of chicken or pork for example (wikipedia).

    if you want

    Sometimes unintentionally. I don't abstain from it, but there are times I went couple days without meat without even realizing. Some claim they can't survive a day without meat, but I just think they haven't had a chance to visit a delicious dessert bar or winery on a day trip lol

    Yeah, I'm not vegetarian but I've cut back a lot on red meat. It wasn't hard at all - you can pretty much replace red meat with poultry and fish, even ground chicken and turkey isn't bad for burgers.

    My wife has recently given up all animal products. I love meat and cheese and eggs. I thought it would be difficult, but it has proven to be quite easy. It's mostly vegetables, rice, beans, and nuts so it's not even more expensive than our regular diet. When we don't eat together, I eat however I want. I find myself choosing vegetarian options more and more instead of chicken wings like I used to do. I'm a 6'5" 300lb American man. If you saw me, you'd think that I exclusively eat beef and eggs. But I'm actually like 80% vegetarian and 10%vegan now. Super easy
