The sick cow

Many people have expressed concern over the health of the cow laid down in the Big Meadow for over a week after having a still birth. Those who have been out and about will know that it is now on its feet and has been moved to the Paddock where Fraser can keep a close eye on it. The cow was tended by Fraser and his family and had veterinary attention but what made the difference to the cow getting up was a visit from a ‘healer’ who used a traditional method of healing often used by Irish farmers alongside the vet! A ‘cow whisperer’ no less. Fraser has never seen anything like it but it did the trick. So, thanks to Fraser for trying everything to save the cow as well as all his patient husbandry.
