Prior to the release of player-owned farms, there were farm related teasers added to the game. The special cows were removed from the game with the release of player-owned farms, but the special farm animals reappear during Double XP Weekends and can be spotted for rewards.
With the update on 28 August 2018, strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate cows replaced all regular cows in RuneScape (except Zanaris) as a teaser for player-owned farms. After the release of player-owned farms, the special cows could no longer be found in-game.
Special farm animals
During the 31 August 2018 to 3 September 2018 Double XP Weekend, seven special farm animals were available to spot around RuneScape. The special farm animals reappear during Double XP Weekends, and can be spotted by players that have not previously spotted them. Players are awarded with a small experience lamp for each spotted animal. Finding an animal prompts the message:
You've found X/7 special farm animals. Keep an eye out for more.
The animals wander around a general location and disappear after being clicked on, similarly to spotting the raven in Prifddinas. Finding all seven animals awards an additional large experience lamp and prompts a dialogue box from Granny Potterington inviting the player to the farm: Thanks for finding them all for me, these little blighters really like to cause me trouble. You seem like a handy sort, pop by my farm sometime and say hello. -Granny Potterington.
