Cuddling with cows

Nine-year-old Abby McReynolds, of North Danville, Vt., cuddles with her cow, Natalie, center, and her brother’s cow, Bling, on Thursday, July 13, 2017, the opening day of the Connecticut Valley Fair, at the fairgrounds in Bradford, Vt. McReynolds said she’s known her cow her whole life. (Valley News — Jovelle Tamayo)

This super-adorable photograph, which comes in the wake of Cow Appreciation Day, was snapped by Valley News intern Jovelle Tamayo, whose last day with us is tomorrow (Saturday). Jovelle has produced stellar work during her time in the Upper Valley (this photograph is just the tip of the iceberg) and will be missed!
