Name That Cow
It was bound to happen. We moved to a small town in Missouri, fell in love with it and decided to stay. So of course, we had to buy cows. What my husband refers to as "investment opportunities," however, are pets to love as far as I'm concerned. Either way, our most recent portfolio additions -- diverse as they are -- don't have much in the way of names. I know it sounds trivial, but it's just awkward making introductions: "This is our youngest, Number Five."
So when I actually succeeded in saving my favorite cow, #30 from a slaughterhouse fate (convincing someone to buy her and leave her intact until she dies of natural cow causes) I knew I had to rectify the situation. Better yet, I knew YOU had to, seeing as how the moment we named our cat, she began to hate us and we've suffered ever since. (A tip from me to you: Squeege is not an acceptable name for a pet.)
So here's your chance to name that cow!
Post your submissions here by Monday. The winner? Will be judged based on a very scientific, error-free system. In other words, I'll pick the most creative, best fitting and most likely the easiest to remember. You'll be famous forever, plus you'll get a free six-pack of beer from Weston Brewing Company with my compliments.
And feel free to stop by and say hello on your next trip into Weston. See the pasture right before Red Barn Farm? She lives there. If you stop and head over to the fence, she'll probably head over to say hello.
I can't wait to see what you guys come up with...
All thanks to Mike Long, the cowboy who saved my cow and keeps her healthy and happy for me.
