Paul was very lonely chopping and walking all by himself. He wished he had a friend his size, not like the children back where he used to go to school. Then like magic, Paul said "Maybe if I had a friend my size..."
Blue snow came down day after day, and his prayer was answered.
While he was walking in the wonderful blue snow, Paul tripped over something. He suddenly heard a mooing sound. He took a closer look down. What he saw, of all things, there was two enormous, hairy ears poking through the snowdrifts! Not only were they big and hairy, they were blue! Paul took the two blue ears and pulled. What came out of the snow nobody would believe. It was a baby blue ox!!! Not only was it blue, it was huge! Paul decided to take it around with him as a pet or sidekick. Paul called the ox, Babe the Blue Ox. Paul then shouted and laughed, "Babe, we'll be wonderful friends!"
That is the tale of how the famous Paul Bunyan got Babe the Blue Ox.
