Needle in a haystack

Lordy, is it that time of year again already? Jen and I spent several hours traipsing across the local moors with our friend the farmer yesterday. We were looking for some cows that had been grazing up there over the summer. We needed to bring them down into the lower fields for the winter.

Unfortunately, although cows are damn big animals, the local moor is roughly the size of Belgium, so finding them wasn't as easy as you might think. Mind you, unlike a year ago today, at least the cows hadn't split into two groups, and they had only wandered a mile away.

  1. A few years ago you would have found them very easily......by following the trail of smoke!
