My neighbour is a very nice old lady. Her daughter is married to the mayor of one of the villages in the canton. Apart of that he is a farmer. In the summer he brings some of his cattle here. The last ones are Normande cattle, well, most of them are. They have “dark glasses” around their eyes, which really looks funny.
On July 2 the sheep had been in the park since some days. I was surprised when saw a cow at the gate. “Hey la vache, what are you doing here?” La vache is a traditional French swear word. I quickly jumped over the fence at the old horse stable and saw 4 cows grazing on the pasturage. One or more of them must have leaned on the fence near the utility barn. The clever fence gives in (or such). He lay down and cows jumped happily over it. Strange enough, at that time we had loads of thistles and stinging nettles in that area. I did it just like them, in the other direction, and went to my neighbour, who gave me a cup of green tea. She had already called her son in law and later on the afternoon he took the cows away and repaired the fence. Now I miss the cows a bit.
