It took me until the end of November last year to get a 'Cows at Kings' shot and the meadow looked a lot less lush at that point. That's because the cows were always in the wrong place. They were miles away on Wednesday when I went in search but these youngsters were very curious about Monty and came and posed nicely for me. It's not often that the presence of Monty is helpful! Mair (@mejbronant) told me last year that these beasts are a very old breed called Park White. They had a gorgeous calf there last year as well. I should point out that there is the little rivulet that the swan was on in Wednesday's shot and an electric fence (cloned out) between them and me (and, more importantly, stopping them reaching a busy road). Apologies for inefficient commenting at the moment - I've got a bad back brought on by the bad shoulder (honestly - listen to me - an old wreck!) and so I've been limiting computer time a bit. Apologies and huge thanks for the lovely comments and favs on the choirboy shots. I posted them on FB and one of my old school friends got back and said that her next door neighbour's grandson was in the group shot. It's a small world and I've offered her the photo so I hope she doesn't mind. I don't generally post identifiable children but the choirboys are all over the internet anyway.
