Elsie was born with five legs at a sale two weeks ago, but that did not stop Matt Alexander from purchasing her for his fiancée.
“Elsie was born at the auction in a pen with a few other cows and there was a mix-up. Matt saw her and immediately knew I would love her,” Maghin Davis explained.
“Her mom was sold with another calf to another man. After bidding on Elsie and getting her, my fiancé knew that was not her mom.”
“He traced down the guy that purchased her mom and bought her from him so they could be together,” she added.
The farmers – who are based in Louisiana - explained that Elsie "absorbed her twin in utero and has five legs and three ears".
The couple has created a Facebook page to “share her story and progress with everyone”.
