You've got a lovely shiny brown coat,
but maybe you should have brushed your tail. I know you agree.
And as for YOU, why don't you wear ribbons?
People love cows with ribbons.
Oh, hello. I'm Shane. I'm judging the cows.
Which one looks best to win the CBeebies Amazing Animal contest?
It's very difficult to decide.
This one's got a lovely shiny coat,
but then, you know, this one is quite smiley.
Well, the farmer's wife in tonight's bedtime story
has the same problem.
Which farmyard baby cow should win the contest? Let's find out.
The story is by Andy Cutbill and Russell Ayto
and it's called The Best Cow In Show.
One morning, Marjorie the cow woke up with a bolt.
BANG! BANG! BANG!
The farmer's wife was hammering up a poster in the yard. BANG!
"Ooh, it's a beautiful baby contest," read Derek the bull.
"This afternoon, before tea, strictly cows only."
"Ooh!" said all the lady cows.
They were terribly excited. So was Marjorie.
Her baby Daisy had been a very special cow
since the very moment she hatched from an egg.
All the baby cows started practising for the contest.
Their mums taught them to swish their tails, trot up and down,
and moo delightfully.
Marjorie wanted to help Daisy,
but Daisy was too busy with the chickens.
The other cows were starting to talk.
"Oh, Daisy's very small for a cow."
"We hear she's not even chewing the cud yet."
Marjorie didn't listen. She knew that Daisy was perfect.
Soon, it was time for the contest to begin.
Derek herded the spectators into the yard.
"Good luck, Marj!" called the chickens.
There were babies everywhere.
A nervous hush fell over the barn
as the farmer's wife appeared.
Carefully, she studied each baby - checked behind their ears,
tried them around the yard for a bit.
Finally, she reached Daisy.
"What a fine specimen!" she said. But as the farmer's wife bent down,
Daisy noticed something wriggling in her hat.
A big, fat, juicy worm!
GULP! Daisy swallowed it whole.
The farmer's wife turned green.
"A ch-ch-ch-chicken?" she spluttered, and she fainted.
"Well, I never!" whispered the other cows.
They began to laugh - hahaha!
Soon the whole yard was in hysterics.
Marjorie scooped Daisy into her arms.
"Daisy might not be like your babies," she said,
"but she's mine and I love her."
Well, you could almost hear a pin drop.
"Glad to hear it!" said Derek, all of a sudden,
and he promptly slapped a large rosette on Marjorie's chest.
"Best in show!" he said. "For being a perfect mum."
Derek gave Marjorie a big, wet kiss.
"Ahh," sighed the chickens, and Marjorie blushed all over.
And that story was called The Best Cow In Show.
Maybe that's my problem. I should be looking for an animal
that's a bit different, to award the CBeebies Amazing Animal trophy.
Maybe there's a chicken round here - or maybe a dinosaur!
That would be amazing, a dinosaur.
Well, while I look for a winner, it's time for you to go to bed.
And I'll see you soon for another story. Night-night.
Now, where can I find a dinosaur?
