The Right of Way...

Returning from the township after dropping Emily off at home yesterday, I had just driven onto the one-way bridge when a herd of cattle were being - well -herded across it.
I was already two thirds of the way across so tried to brazen it out with the cattle. No way! They just kept coming.

And coming..I stopped dead and waited for them to squash past my vehicle. The children, who were sitting in the back of my pick-up, were delighted at the close proximity of these animals as they passed us.

Oh, cattle (such as these), goats and sheep, which belong to locals, are taken to a grassy patch, normally beside the road, and tethered to a stone for the day. They can move about for as long as their tether is and graze.

They just kept on coming... The children and I just LOVED the little calf who was fortunately still with his mother.

  1. We all live in different worlds and what a great way to share them by blogging. We are not allowed to have people in the back of pick ups any more. It would have been fun for the children.

  2. Cheers for the New Year Jo!
    God bless all!
