Babe the Blue Ox is a huge beast that is said to be 93 hands high and 42 axe-handles in width. It became the friendly companion of the lumberjack hero Paul Bunyan. It was so large that some of its foot prints left dents in the earth which filled up with rain to become lakes. It once dragged a pick along the land which carved through the earth creating the Grand Canyon. The beast was white but became blue during the Winter of Blue Snows. It had an obsession with cakes which eventually caused its death. It became so hungry with an immense craving for cakes that it ate the cakes while they where still baking. It swallowed the stove along with the cakes which burnt the ox’s stomach and killed it.
