Then there was Boo. Why so sad Boo? Where we live here in Hereford UK we are surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside and rural landscapes and of course farming. Opposite our home is the cowsheds, full of big 'ole cows. The farmer buys the young calves and rears them for meat before selling them on at market and buying the babies and so the cycle begins again. Its quite sad when the babies come, you hear them mooing their mournful moo's throughout the day and into the night, but after a day or two they settle in and munch happily on the food the farmer provides in plenty and become big and fat cows ready to go back to market. During the summer time, they get moved out into the fields down by the river and we become quite acquainted, the cows, dogs and I. Little Boo, is a new recruit to the family, but unlike the other other cows she will not be getting big and fat and going to market...hooray for Boo!!
