GIVEAWAY: “Possibilities, Moo-n Over Main Street Metropolis”

In the Apr/May 2019 issue of MaryJanesFarm, “Possibilities” (on newsstands March 5), I led you here to my journal for a chance to win one of three FREE copies of my children’s book, Moo-n Over Main Street Metropolis.

A 34-page cowpanion to my fifth book, Milk Cow Kitchen, this adorable adventure story is about a milk cow named Sally O’Mally who finds love in the home of a single mom and her daughter who never gave up hope that someday, they’d have a backyard milk cow. Includes five reader-to-child educational pages that are jam-packed with conversational questions, including an irresistible hands-on project.

For a chance to win, tell me the name you’ve picked out for your someday cow in the comments below. I’ll toss your name into a hat and draw a lucky winner sometime mid-May.

    I’ve heard of naming cows after favorite aunts or other women in the family. I love this so my cow will be named Daisy for my favorite aunt when I was a girl. She was under 5 ft tall and loved sewing and crafts. Thank you!

  9. Becci Bartz says:

    I have to name my animals (that are meant for food on our table) names that remind me not to make pets out of them. For example our pig was named ‘Dinner”.
    I think I would name her Milk Maiden, not that we would end up eating her for dinner some night, like all the others are destined for, but because I think it’s a cute name……

  10. We had a milk cow named valentine she was born on Valentine’s day and had a white heart on her forhead she was so sweet so would like to have another valentine.
    Or a Daisy May.

  11. Elisabeth Perkins says:

    I almost had a milk cow. (She ended up with tumors in her udder and only had enough milk for her calf. Which, in turn, became a blessing because we were ready for such a large undertaking) Her name was Heidi, Her calf I named Lucy. If I ever get ready for a milk cow, I don’t know what I would name her, because i think I want to “meet” her before I name her. But I think something old, maybe Ethel! That would keep my theme of “I Love Lucy”.

  12. Krystle says:

    My first milk cow will be named Betsy Ross for the woman who is credited for sewing our country’s flag!

  13. Monica Schmit says:

    Sophie of course!!

  22. Laura S says:

    I was in 4-H for 10 years and I have several cows that I’ve gotten over the years. My very first heifer was ‘Esme’, I bottle fed her and she quickly became the families favorite cow…that acted like our family dog 🙂

  23. Jo Ellen Little says:

  34. Pam Brink says:

    Joy here and there and everywhere!

    I was raised on a large Farm with registered Holsteins. I was so excited when it became my “job” to name & register the calves. I’ve always loved the name Betsy.

    When I was a little girl, my grandparents lived just down the road. They had a cow they called Bessie the Heifer. I’m always telling my granddaughter stories about Bessie the Heifer. So that’s what I would have to name my cow.
