Yes it was a great sight and sound and I'm no expert but they looked like magnificent animals although I was very pleased there were was a fence between me and them!!

Robin and Trish: Does this group look familiar? Jackie had just scaled the barbed wire fence and the stile is further down. They may be harmless but we didn't try to find out with our poles!

That's them! Actually, by the time we got to the stile they had given up! I'm not too bothered by bulls, young or old, unless it's a lone bull or a Fresian bull. Loud shouts of "Giddy-up" and a feigned prod with a walking pole normally keep them several feet away. But cows with very young calves and far more aggresive. I suppose I'm lucky that I grew up in a cattle farming community. Sadly I can't explain all this to Cassie!

hi all'
i often wonder what a lot of folk would have done if they had to carry a scuttle full of chopped turnips in to a fold yard with 6o bullocks and pigs running loose, step on to a pig asleep under the sraw and you are upskelled.
as i have said before if you are quite, shouting and waving your arms about only gets the beast excited.
we are walking on other peoples land and we should respect that and where there are stock we should try and walk quitely with out disturbing them
