The boy and cow lose the state fair competition, but they win the hearts of millions with their nap

A photo of a teen and his cow has gone viral and won the hearts of millions, and you’re about to see why. Mitchell Miner, 15, and his cow, Audri, were exhausted after finishing fifth out of seven total contestants at the Iowa State Fair.

The two had spent the previous months preparing for the competition and had formed an extremely close bond in the process. And the image of them napping together in the barn perfectly captures their endearing friendship. It was just a boy and his cow.
