Latvia 2-LATI (KM38)

Latvian Brown

Latvijas Banka refers to this simply as a 'cow' but I am going to go out on a limb and say it could possibly be a Latvian Brown. It may also be a Latvian Blue, another Latvian dairy cow with forward-facing horns.

Update: The same cow has re-appeared on the 2016 2-euro coin, and the bank confirms it is indeed a Latvian brown.
