This question already has an answer here:

The first time each day you right-click on farm animals you get a heart, like with your pet. Does this have any effect?

Particularly related to the 5 heart "progress bar" thing you get when you right-click them the next time. Or is that heart "progress bar" just something that grows as long as the animal has food?

Yes, petting (or as you say 'hearting') helps increase the heart progress bar with farm animals.

Friendship can be raised by daily petting (right-clicking the animal) and feeding.
