Trouble with a capital C ...

Trouble has a colour. Black. And a face.


6am phone call today from our neighbour to say the paddock known as 'the fortress'  had been breached. I have no idea what havoc this cow caused on the farm before ours but, like a Pied Piper, she has a loyal following of young fans.

It doesn’t matter if it is the vegetable garden or the orchard fence, or the pony paddock, if there is a fence it must be jumped. She isn’t hungry (check out neck rolls) or trying to find a bull she is just a free and very determined spirit. But as much trouble as she causes, Little Farmer ( also known to scale a fence or two in his time) still calls her his favourite cow.

    There is a fence it must be hopped. She isn't ravenous or attempting to discover a bull she is only a free and exceptionally decided spirit.still calls her his most loved bovine.
