cows_jeffreys_neck_1200_dexter1  I just love this photo which I found on the Stories  from Ipswich website.  It reminds me of Ireland although my image of cows coming home in Ireland would not be in such a flat landscape.  The Irish cows would be coming along a narrow country lane in County Kerry near Brandon in the West  of Ireland.
