        I love bulls, they are so very noble and powerful! Most are just like little spaniels, I saw one run up to the fence around here for a scratch and a tickle from the farmer, just like a doggie!

        I wonder where he was going?

          Not sure where he was going, but he had a mischievous gleam in his eyes, and with the size of his horns we decided not to stay around! I do hope he got home safely.

          At Aberaeron for the weekend, the weather is beautiful at last! There is a big Seafood Festival in the harbour tomorrow, lots of celebrity chefs and food stalls. Looking forward to a lazy day, nibbling at crab and mackerel etc

            He was probably just checking that his towbar was still secure. Mind you, somebody should tell him he's driving on the wrong side of the road...any volunteers?

                We met this lovely specimen on the A road on Mull between Calgary and Buness (as I remember). Luckily he was standing in a passing space, as the roads are mostly single track!

                    Many years ago we walked to Bredon Hill from the nearby Kennet and Avon canal (is narrowboating any less "camping" than motorhoming?) to see what the "coloured counties" of Houseman's poems set by Vaughan Williams were really like.
                    Near the top we encountered a huge and very masculine bull meditating upon a tall thistle. He ignored us completely. We stayed put, since there was a substantial fence between us.
                    Out came a huge tongue (everything is large in this story including the hill). The bull snapped the thistle in the middle, drew it into his mouth inch by inch including the root, and contentedly munched.
                    It's reported that the Roman soldiers on Hadrian's Wall used stinging nettles to flagellate themselves - a similar pleasure?

                      Well written Paul - I can almost hear that bull munch!

                        I dont know that all roman soldiers did this but followers of the Mithras cult did,this cult was very big,rivalling Christianity,it worshipped the God Mithras in his incarnation as a Bull.
                        Your Bull was probably meditating on times gone by when he got a little respect from the Monkey tribe!
                        they also used nettles as a preservative for beer,which they learned from the Saxons.The Romans were always quick to adopt a good idea.
