Babe got his blue color by being stuck in the legendary storm of the Winter of the Blue Snow. Paul Bunyan found the small ox shivering and upset. Paul brought Babe home, dried him out by his fire, fluffed him up, but Babe remained blue as the snow and that's story of why Babe is blue. According to MN folklore.
I'm down, with that story, so I painted a moment of it. What's up Babe?
