Moo! A Cow Story

In the horrible, run-down farm of Happy Acres, a lonely, skinny cow dreams of going to the beautiful and luscious farm called Promise Land Farms which he can see advertised on a roadside billboard. One day, an express truck from Promise Land Farms drives right by his farm, but the Skinny Cow is rejected for his pathetic size. Lying in defeat with no other options, the Skinny Cow has no choice but to rely on a stranger who appears to him that very night.
