Christopher Robyn lives on a ranch in a small farming community in western Washington State. "I watch animals interact on a daily basis. This close proximity to farm life has inspired me to portray animals in an intimate way. A way, which only living amongst them can portray."
His book I Think I'm a Cow was inspired by real events. His story is an adaptation of those events. The story goes something like this:
The neighbor had purchased a male goat, a ram, which Christopher named Billy, or Billy Goat. Since Billy Goat could not see that he was any different than the other animals in the pasture, he naturally bonded with the animal that he identified with the most. In this case, it was a cow. Hence the title of his children's book I Think I'm a Cow.
