Yes indeed. (Assuming, as we evidently have been, that it's a fullyrealized  enough creation to have a full range of cow-like attributes.)

Depends on a) state of mind, and b) how good the lie detecting magic is. Trickster being Trickster, it's equally possible on the one hand that he believes he's stolen the essence of Uralda's magic, and can create "real cows"; it's equally possible he thinks of it as an "illusory cow", as any 'neutral' observer from his culture would.

This is a cultural perspective. (IMO.)
