The Oreo Cows

Oreo Cows

Take a drive on Yachats River Road for a possible view of grazing belted bovines – and sometimes also a majestic herd of elk. These black cattle with their signature cream-colored stripe are known affectionately by local children as “the oreo cows.”  The river valley is also home to herds of bleating goats, sheep, and less vocal horses and llamas, as well as ducks, peacocks, and other wonderful beings.
