I have had my eye on these beautiful heifers and their calves for a while, especially when the evening sun lights them up. Little did I realise the bull was in with the girls. As a sign says,'If you think you can make it over the field in ten seconds, dont. The bull can make it in nine!'
Later I was delighted to meet Lorraine Kraeer, their owner, who loves them with a passion. I gave her a print of the painting as I sold the original at Art in the Garden. She was quiet for a while and then she and her grand daughter started naming the ones they recognised! I am sure I am not a lone in preferring to eat meat from an animal that has had a happy life.
