These are known as Belted Galloway cattle. There are a number of breeders here in Tasmania.

We call them "Oreo" cows here for obvious reasons. I love the cute little critters.

Many years ago my father in law saw a painting featuring Belted Galloways, he said "That's ridiculous there's no cows like that". I said nothing at the time but took great delight in showing him some shots I took of a herd in the NSW southern highlands a couple of months later. Ever since I have a soft spot for Belted Galloways.

Sorry, it is a cookie consisting of two chocolate wafers with a white cream filling.

Another breed very similar are known as "Dutch Belted Cattle," or Lakenvelder. The Lakenvelder are dairy cattle, where as the Galloway breed are raised for beef.
