Meghan Van Dorp of Van Dorp Farms in Marion, New York, has a special place in her heart for Brown Swiss cows, particularly one named Winnie. Meghan dreamed of having a Brown Swiss ever since she spotted a cow with a coloring above the eye that, to the then six-year-old girl, looked like eyeshadow. Meghan eventually got her dream, an eye-shadowed cow she named Winnie. They shared a special bond. To Meghan, Winnie was not your average cow. She was Meghan’s best friend and confidant. Meghan says no animal has probably ever received tighter hugs or had more tears dribbled down teenage cheeks into her fur than Winnie.
