Today's exciting news has been spotted in the City of Fremont in a local school called Brier Elementary. There we saw an extraordinary scene like no other! As we walked along the path, we saw many cheerful, excited children running to a certain object. We weren't sure but whatever it was, it should have been good.
With a great feeling, me and my helpers went eagerly to explore the situation. We arrived and saw the most amazing thing...a cow! Of course it was for the children's amusement but she was a divine cow. I was surely going to listen. I learned that the cow's name was Ellie, a wonderful girl. Last year she gave birth to twins. But I give props to the awesome man who gave us an experience of a lifetime.
Amazingly, he wowed us all by teaching us so many wonderful facts. He showed us how to milk a cow and the machinery they use to milk her. He informed us of the various types of foods Ellie eats such as carrots, artichokes and, obviously, grass and hay. One fun fact about Ellie is that she once ate 56 artichokes in one day! They are not sure if that is a record though. But most important, there was a lot of fun and laughs in a short matter of minutes. It seemed to all to be very much worthwhile.
