The

is underway and one animal is stealing the show.

Cinco the cow has been drawing a lot of attention because it has five legs.

Cinco was born with an extra leg attached to its shoulder, and other than having five legs, the five-year-old black angus cow is perfectly healthy and normal.

The fairground's owner, Larry Burnett, says Cinco makes visitors take a second look when they walk through the petting zoo.

"The first time I seen it I didn't know what it was, I got to doing some checking on it and come to find out it's something in the genetics that makes it happen; it's rare." said Burrnett.

You can see Cinco and enjoy the rest of the rides until the fair ends Saturday, September 21.
