Girl trains cow to jump fence after parents say no to horse

A 15-year-old girl in Germany has trained a cow named Luna to jump a fence.

When Regina Mayer's parents turned down her request to get a horse, she went out to her parents' farm and trained one of the cows.

It took her two years, but now she and Luna jump fences and go on long walks through the countryside.

Regina says she thinks Luna considers herself to be a horse. Her parents say they may get their daughter a real horse soon.
