If you're like me and have been disappointed with the vanilla cows, then this mod is for you. Skyrim's cows just have awkward proportions compared to Highland cattle, wild, hybrid or domesticated. This mod replaces the vanilla cow skeleton with a new custom skeleton meant to give the cows of Skyrim a more realistic and immersive appearance to more closely resemble actual cattle or hybrid buffalo.  Working within the confines of the vanilla mesh, I adjusted the head, neck, and limbs of Skyrim's cows to give them a beefier appearance!  These new subtle changes to Skyrim's cows have transformed them to more closely resemble typical cattle of Northern Europe and other parts of the world.  Now you can enjoy encountering realistic and hardy cows on the farms of Skyrim. Immersing you even more into the word of Skyrim with every encounter! 


Animations and Combat still work perfectly!

! ! ! BULLISH BOVINE ! ! !


Bullish Bovine uses a custom skeleton for the Vanilla cows and will overwrite any mod that makes changes to the vanilla cow skeleton.  Mods that make sweeping changes to vanilla skeletons e.g."Realistic Ragdoll and Force" should be compatible as long as "Bullish Bovine" is installed after those mods and allowed to overwrite their files.

Should be fully compatible with any texture mods, since this mod contains no textures of it's own only a skeleton.  Which also makes it compatible with most other creature mods that do not edit vanilla skeletons.

[ [ [ INSTALLATION ] ] ]

Recommend using Nexus Mod Manager or your favorite mod manager.

Install "Bullish Bovine" after any mod that makes changes to the vanilla Cows and overwrite any files when prompted.

 There is no ".esp plugin" with this mod.
