Carrie Underwood has two new additions to her farmyard family. Recently, Underwood welcomed a couple of cows to her Tennessee property. And her son Isaiah has the perfect name for them – Brownie and Oreo.
“My son named them Brownie and Oreo,” Underwood told Taste of Country. “Because one is brown and one is black and white.”
Underwood’s oldest is 5-years-old and quite creative. Previously, she revealed Isaiah picked up arts and crafts as a hobby during the pandemic. He’s also appeared with his mother on her latest Christmas album. If he can continue to hone his lyrical gifts then maybe he’ll make a good songwriter one day.
The pair of Christmas cows were a gift from Underwood’s husband Mike Fisher to ring in the holidays. The couple also decided to get the animals because they now have space on the property. The Underwoods built a barn for their five horses to reside in and decided to give the leftover space to the bovine.
“I love animals,” Underwood said. “Cows are probably my favorite animal because I grew up with them. I think they just have such personalities. I just can’t wait to really get to know ours.”

But unlike most farms, Underwood doesn’t plan on eating the cattle later. The country singer grew up on a cattle ranch in Oklahoma. And the experience left her a little traumatized. Underwood has sworn off eating meat all together. Instead, she’s acquired a variety of animals because she likes the company.
But the farm probably won’t be complete until she has a donkey, which Underwood plans to get next. Her two boys will have a lot of animals to feed at this rate. She’s been getting them to help out on the farm.
“I feel like we just keep getting more and more chickens,” Underwood said. “I think next is gonna be donkeys, because they’re good to have as far as, like, coyotes go on the farm.”
