Aint Nobody Here but us Cattle…

Cycling back from the papershop yesterday, I noticed a big stone lying in the middle of the road that definitely hadn’t been there on the way down. And looking over the stone dyke which now had a big-stone-shaped gap in the top, these innocent-looking characters.

cows looking nonchalant

If cows could whistle in an unconcerned sort of way, that’s what they would have been doing. Nothing to see here, move along. We’re not demolishing the wall piece by piece, oh no, not at all. Who us? It just came apart in our hands. A big cow did it and ran away. It wisnae us.

It will be interesting to see how much wall is left when I go by on Monday…

    @CJ – indeed. The picture of innocence
    @Flighty – who knows! I write this stuff as it happens… it all depends on what the cows do next

    Ha ha, a guiltier team of bovines I haven’t seen.

    Cows are famous for quietly surrounding you without looking at you or even moving. I was once innocently standing in a field when a huge pink tongue licked the back of my jacket and neck. When i climbed down from a friendly tree I was looked at with a mixture of suprise, reproach and scorn by a herd of friendly Friesians.

    @Jenny – they were all innocently eating the hedge last time I passed.
    @Charles – they’re much bolder when you’ve got your back turned. Like llamas, apparently
