Youngsters from Little Dude Ranch, along with those from several other day care centers, took advantage of “cow appreciation day” at Chick-fil-A Friday by dressing up in a cow costume and getting a free meal. Pictured in no particular order are Tristan Escamilla, 9, of Early; Sergio Gutierrez, 9, of Brownwood; Xavier Porter, 8, of Brownwood; Marco Jaquez, 9, of Brownwood; and Brandon Tharp, 8, of Elm Grove.
