"Be My Valentine" has won the hearts of people around the world
A farm in Northern Ireland had a special Valentine’s Day delivery when a calf was born with a remarkably perfect heart-shaped patch on its forehead.
James McAuley of Parkshaw Farm in Bushmills, Co Antrim told Belfast Live: "I've seen ones kind of like it but it's just the date, being Valentine's Day. It was my mum that said 'look at the heart on her head!'."
Fittingly, McAuley says that the newborn Jersey calf will be named "Be My Valentine."
The Co Antrim farmer said his three young children have taken a particular liking to the farm's newest addition: “They just love the wee jersey calves, their nature is very different to other calves."
McAuley Multimedia shared these adorable snapshots of McAuley’s three children with the now-viral calf:
