She had colored patches of yellow and brown and two tiny horns. Every day after school, Sokha took Chompa to graze in the clover fields and along the rice paddies. And before nightfall, he would lead Chompa back to the stable. Then he would wash up. He would clean his hands and feet, put on fresh clothes, and eat with the rest of the family. One day when Sokha came back home from school, he discovered that Chompa had given birth to a boy calf. He gave it the name Apopeal be- cause it was covered with brown and white patches. He was very happy that Apopeal had joined them. Apopeal couldn’t walk far because he was still small. A month later, Apopeal could walk beautifully, just as well as his moth- er, Chompa. She still suckled him. When Sokha went to school, he let Chompa and Apopeal out to graze with the other cows.
