Klara the Skating Cow

Farmer Groot often jokes, that Klara his black and white cow is more trouble than she is worth, but he’s really very fond of his good natured cow. Even if she doesn’t always know what’s best for her. Most cows would agree, that it’s no fun being kept inside all Winter, and Klara is no exception. Sometimes life just didn’t seem fair, especially as Hendrik, the farmer’s horse was outside in the meadow, even on the coldest of days.  

One day the thought of fresh air and delicious green grass becomes so enticing, that Klara can no longer resist. With her nose she is able to lift the latch of the barndoor and is able to squeeze through. Outside is a world that is very new to her. A white and rather magical world. After borrowing two pairs of red clogs to keep her hooves warm, Klara ends up on the frozen canal, where her adventure begins.
