A life-size fiberglass cow, going by the name of Betsy to some, has taken up her position at Orchard Elementary school’s entryway in South Burlington, says the Burlington Free Press. She isn’t your typical looking cow – sporting a sunflower eye and purple hooves – but she stands as a memorial to Amelia Sperry, a 5-year-old who was killed in a bicycle accident last May. That cow was special to Amelia who became it’s fan when she found it on display as part of the Cows Come Home to Burlington festival. The cow’s creator, Nini Crane, added Amelia’s name in small letters in several places on the cow. Local philanthropist and R.E.M. Development founder Bobby Miller and his wife Holly donated the cow to the school in memory of Amelia. “It’s a beautiful cow, but not as beautiful as Amelia,” said Ava Laroche, age 6.
