It's not insufficient if you cannot afford it or something, it's just always better to have another animal for companionship... just like if you only lived with cows and no other humans, you would be lonely without another human.

Larger cows aren't very different to smaller cows except for needing more feed - So if all that is available are larger cows, have a chat to the farmwer and see if he think you would be capable of supporting a larger cow.

...Not to be rude, but can I suggest a goldfish?

I would suggest you seriously read up on any animal you choose, and whatever you do, don't buy large animals like horses and cattle. They do NOT make good pets for the inexperienced. Dogs, cats, fish...those are pets the inexperienced can read about and generally "figure out" without harming the animal or themselves!

Horses and cows are something you learn through years of teaching by a more experienced individual, at least, in best case scenario.

If you decide to get a cow as a pet, make sure it is one that is used to people and not afraid of them, I would assume you would like to be able to pat your pet so one that is used to this would be good, or get a calf you can teach yourself. Nanny goats make good pets if they have been around people and handled from a young age.

we are regretful to unable to procure a small cow. a small cow was not available for purchase. only large cows. we are considering our finances and desire purchase two large cows. because one cow requires companionship. we are grateful for your assistance in our situation.

Sorry, but this was scary stuff. I just hope that if you purchase cattle..or any other animal for that sake that you have people with some experience to help out. No animal is a machine, they do not come with an on/off button. They require following up...not just one time either.

This is like one of those science fiction stories where computers become sentient and start communicating with people via the Internet. (No offense, wertthelert, it's just that your use of language is unusual).

I'm fairly sure that english is simply not their first language, so the grammar and wording is a little odd.
