Heart, the ox born with a heart-shaped marking on his forehead

Remember Heart-kun the chihuahua?  Mickey Moo the cow?

Following in the footsteps of those other animals-with-unusual-markings who so captivated humankind comes Heart, an ox born with a prominent heart pattern on his forehead. 

Heart lives at Yamakun farm in Fujisawa, near Tokyo.  "Good timing for Valentine's Day," was farm owner Kazunori Yamazaki's comment to the Associated Press.
