If you've ever visited Renninger's Farm, you've probably met Red Cloud, the huge red-and-white steer that lived there.
Red Cloud, who the Renningers believe was 15 years old, passed away at the farm on November 17th, and is clearly missed by many of the farm's visitors.
Red Cloud might have weighed a ton and stood 6 feet 3 inches, but Jennie Renninger told Patch in an email that he followed her father Jay around the farm like a puppy.
"He became my father's trusty companion," Renninger wrote. "He would come when he called and cock his head to listen when you spoke to him."
Red Cloud loved cookies, pretzels, cantaloupe and pumpkins. Renninger also said that one summer, Jay counted that Red Cloud ate over 100 ears of corn.
Comments on Renninger's Farm's Facebook page show how well-known Red Cloud was among the farm's visitors. Several commenters said the farm won't be the same without him.
"We always loved coming to the farm and seeing him," commented Pearl Rathman.
"Red Cloud was the first one I looked for when I visited the farm," wronte Amanda Keener.
"He was a special part of the family and will be missed," Jennie Renninger said.
