Nadine is as content as a cow can be. Her life on Pete's farm is perfect. She loves to wander off on her own to smell the breezes, visit favorite spots, and search for stones for her collection. The other cows snicker at her solitary ways, so when Nadine finds an egg and naively assumes it's a stone, no one bothers to enlighten her. Instead, the other cows urge her to take great care of it.

One day the whole herd is sold to another farm and Nadine's perfect life is shattered. No Pete, no beloved farm and worst of all, no stone to care for. Unless Pete rescues her and takes her home, Nadine will never know of the miracle taking place to her precious stone.
