Ferdinand is a gentle giant of a bull .. fighting is not his calling. He'd rather sniff than snort. He relishes in the delicate scent of wildflowers and only shows his temper when stung by a bumblebee. His reaction to the bee sting was mistaken as fierceness and landed him a job in a bullfight. To the dismay of the matador, Ferdinand entered the ring mild as a lamb. He didn't want to fight. He just wanted to smell the flowers. The flowers at the bullfight, decorating the event and in every woman's hair, filled the arena with a heavenly scent and calmed Ferdinand's fears. Needless to say there wasn't much of a show for the spectators that day.
