There I was feeling liberated from the snow and full of energy with the spring, but you should have seen this lot go. What with the weather over the past couple of months, yer farmer tends to keep his dairy cows inside most of the winter. And when they get let out for the first time, do they go for it? Yes they do. The whole village gets out its walking sticks and takes up strategic positions at track junctions and farm gates to guide the gals towards their new spring grass. I don't know if you can image what a herd of hippos doing some wild Irish step dancing (a la Riverdance) might look like, but if you can, that will give you some idea of yesterday's spectacle. It's a bit scary.
