Aosta Chestnut - cow - Italy

The Aosta Chestnut (aka Razza Valdostana castana and Valdostana castana in Italian; Valdôtaine châtaigne and Châtaignée in French) is identical to the Hérens.

The Aosta Chestnut is bred to consistently have a reddish 'chestnut' coat. Like the Hérens, they are also used in cow-fight competitions.
