WATCH: Heard Of The Princess And The Frog? Meet The Farm Boy And The Cow

Not to give the Tony Perkins crowd more reason to argue gay relationships are going to lead to man sleeping with farm animals, but this adorable story about farmer boy Kyle forming a special bond with his cow Willis is worth watching. Broookton Hollow is “a gay faerie tale about a boy and his cow,” its San Francisco-based director Joshua Smith puts plainly. Yeah, it gets a little to Equus by the end, but I’m making the “more cow bell” joke before you do.

      I cried when the father drowned his salisbury steak with pan gravy.

      Cute story! For those that enjoyed it might I suggest the books “Fairy Tales – Traditional Stories Retold for Gay Men” & “Gay Fairly & Folk Tales – More Traditional Stories Retold for Gay Men” both by Peter Cashorali. You’ll find quite a few gems of stories in similar vein as the short film above.

      Hmmm,

      So not only did the cow change from bovine to human but also from female to male?

      Making fun of this film is easy… however, I’m curious to hear what the jokesters think is the moral of this film.

      @Vman455: Totally agree! Anyone used to working a farm/ knows anything about animal farming would be appalled at the idea of killing a milk cow. Cute idea, the execution leaves some to be desired.

      i grew up on a farm and was given a jersey cow to milk as a kid. true, most people would never kill their milk cow!
      maybe it was a poor decision on my part to use a female cow in this movie, but it was the only cow i had access to for my (very) low budget movie.

      This was a charming, lovely little film. Obviously a labor of love.

      And they lived happily ever after for the rest of the summer….then winter came, and they were both found dead in the woods of frostbite and malnutrition. The End.
