On seeing the cattle in front of the cottage, MB stopped his car in the middle of a quiet country road not far from his own house, hit the handbrake and left the engine running as abandoned his vehicle for a few moments – camera in hand. On seeing MB, the curious cattle started to walk in his direction. They may have been expecting some feedstuff from MB on the cold March morning that was in it. But their luck was out. It would not be their day. All they would receive was the joy of knowing that they would soon appear in an MB blog post. “Better than nothing”, said the cattle. “Just about”, said MB.
