The cow is doing great and its personality is really starting to show, the Humane Society said. They said she is curious and friendly.

The group held a naming contest for the cow on their Facebook page, then held a raffle to officially name her on Monday at noon.

The winning name is: Blossom.

The screening process to find the cow a forever home has also begun, the Humane Society said.
