Monstrous Monday: Bessie, the Hellcow (5e)

This is actually the second time I've done stats for Hellcow. This first time it they were for Mutants and Masterminds 3e. These stats are complex, but they're fun. I think Hellcow would make a great, absurd encounter in a Curse of Strahd game.

Bessie, The Hellcow
Large Undead, Neutral Evil
Armor Class: 13 (natural armor)
Hit Points: 58 (6d8+18)
Speed: 40, Fly 40
Str         Dex      Con      Int        Wis       Cha

Challenge 4
Multiattack. Bessie makes two attacks, they cannot be bite attacks. 
Hooves. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 8 (2d4 + 3) bludgeoning damage damage. 
Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one willing creature, or a creature that is grappled by the vampire, incapacitated, or restrained. Hit: 6 (1d6 + 3) piercing damage plus 7 (2d6) necrotic damage. The target’s hit point maximum is reduced by an amount equal to the necrotic damage taken, and the vampire regains hit points equal to that amount. The reduction lasts until the target finishes a long rest. The target dies if this effect reduces its hit point maximum to 0. 
Bessie has a Cloak of the Bat that allows her to fly 40' and typical vampire weaknesses.
