Shame the gardens escaped but.....

The person who managed to capture that great event was probably trying hard not to laugh...with a possible future claim in the offing, for 'wilfull vandalism' total 'animals' their garden.

"Pasteurise?...yes...and on camera too, Farmer Brown."

Ah! The BBC has notice the error in the report - the origional said 'Residents in a North Yorkshire cul-de-sac were woken by a herd of cows stampeding through their gardens after they escaped from a nearby field.'

This brings back memories of when we first moved in to our newly built house in the early 70's.

Our house had the road at the back of the house and at the front there was a footpath and then a wire fence stopping the cows in the field from escaping.

It was a regular occurence to wake up to cows leaving deep impressions on our new front lawn and even sometimes find them round the back of the house munching on whatever vegetables we had been trying to grow.

The cows got out via an opening which the farmer had closed using a pallet and legal advice told us that a pallet did in law constitute a gate. Whether the cows had learned to open the 'gate' or someone had left it open we never did find out.

The old saying about the grass being greener comes to mind.

Rollin', rollin', rollin'.

Rollin', rollin', rollin'.

Rollin', rollin', rollin'.

Rollin', rollin', rollin'.


Hah! Hah!

Keep rollin', rollin', rollin',

Though the streams are swollen,

Keep them dogies rollin', rawhide.

Through rain and wind and weather,

Hell bent for leather,

Wishin' my gal was by my side.

All the things I'm missin',

Good vittles, love, and kissin',

Are waiting at the end of my ride.

Move 'em out, head 'em up,

Head 'em up, move 'em on.

Move 'em out, head 'em up: Rawhide.

Cut 'em out, ride 'em in, Ride 'em in, cut 'em out,

Cut 'em out, ride 'em in: Rawhide!

Hah! Hah!

If that was Desperate Dan's garden they would be mince by now!

Regular occurrence when I lived in St Newlyn East in Cornwall.

My son, two or three at the time thought it was wonderful and would be out to stroke them (wish I'd known about e-coli back then, I could have sued!), they obviously didn't see him as a threat and were quite placid.

Usually sorted out out by a pot of cream!

...I don't think a pot of cream would have halted those beasts!

Maybe they were looking for the cancelled Great Yorkshire Show ?

Our more knowledgeable country folk will be able to confirm but I don't think that you would get milk from them.

That should make it a good year for the roses now...
