This afternoon Jackie and I had a successful Birthday present trip to Lyndhurst, and an abortive one to Burley. The car park in the latter village was packed to bursting, with many queuing, and there is nowhere else to leave your car. So we returned home via Bashley, where

we encountered a breed of cattle we had not seen before. They are small, hairy, and horned. The two calves and a cow were quite close to the road until I disembarked to photograph them. Off they trotted at a fair old rate to the comparative safety of the rest of the small herd; whilst I tottered gingerly over the now churned up, pitted, terrain that they had trampled over. Imagining them to be a small variety of Highland cattle I Googled them and identified them as Marshmallows. Would anyone agree?

Later, two gentlemen from Jem Fabrics came to measure and photograph our threadbare Chesterfield in order to quote for reupholstery.

Elizabeth being at Mum’s, Jackie and I dined on spicy meat feast pizza and left-over takeaway curry. I drank more of the Australian Shiraz Cabernet. My lady had finished the Ciro on the patio beforehand.

  1. Interesting cows Derrick. I agree with you. When going to an activity so jam packed where there’s no convenient place to park, better to forego it and just drink wine!

  2. Yay for a birthday present trip!
    Great photos! Wow! Those cows are unique and cute! They do look the color of toasted marshmallows! 🙂 The big-horny one facing the camera looks like he’s saying, “Is my photo gonna’ end up on your blog?” Ha! 😀
    HUGS!!! 🙂

  3. Inasmuch as they are puffy and fluffy, they are marshmallow-like but I bet they don’t taste good in hot-chocolate. Whose birthday? Regardless, how appropriate it should be in August at the peak of gardening glory.
