We locked eyes from about twenty feet across a floor at an antique mall.
The beauty of her ebony and cream pattern beckoned me to come closer.
I could almost hear the little bell suspended around her neck ringing, calling me to her!
One look at the perfect conformation of her Holstein hind quarters said "Grand Champion"!
And so talented! She could move her head up and down, her horns could rotate and her tail could lift - where had she come from?
Her underside provided a clue - the cog under her belly and the holes in her hooves told me she may have been the star of a point of purchase display, with perhaps a motor driving her animation from a stand she freed herself from many years ago.
It was love at first sight and I
brought her home.
Her name is Rhoda and she's very glad to meet you!
