Tiny cow from Cheshire among new Guinness World Records
A cow has entered the record books as the world's smallest.
Swallow, a Dexter cow from Cheshire, stands 33.5in (0.8m) tall from hind to foot - shorter than most sheep.
The 11-year-old, who is currently pregnant, has produced nine calves and is described by owner Caroline Ryder as the "nanny of the herd".
Swallow secured a slot with the tallest dog, longest snake and oldest gorilla in the 2011 Guinness World Records.
