My family and I have been lucky enough to live on a farm for the past 5 years but last week I witnessed something fabulous for the very first time. The event in question was the farm’s cows being let out into the fields after four long months in their winter barn.
The bovine joy was unconfined as they galloped up and down the field, jumping and bucking their back legs – more like gamboling lambs than big, slow beasts. So, if you happen to live near a farm with cows on it, then do your soul a favour and ask the farmer nicely if you can watch next year when the cows get their freedom. Unfortunately we didn’t have a camera with us as we hadn’t expected that to happen but it was a bit like the video above - but better.
