Time to moo-ve

Scottish Daily Mail - - Entertainm­ents -

THE ‘cow pat-io’ ar­ti­cle about the cou­ple who woke up to find a bull in their back gar­den (Mail) re­minded me of a sim­i­lar in­ci­dent that hap­pened to friends. Ten new houses were built on land bought from the lo­cal farmer.

My friends bought one and lov­ingly cre­ated a small gar­den with a rock­ery, as did the other proud new home-owners.

Sadly, on more than one oc­ca­sion, they would get up in the morn­ing or come home from work to find that the cows from the field next door had bro­ken down the fence, tram­pled all over their new gar­dens, torn the clean wash­ing from the clothes lines and left cow pats ev­ery­where.

Ev­ery­one was very up­set, but when they com­plained to the farmer and asked him to do some­thing about it, he replied: ‘The cows were here be­fore thee.’
