If you ever come to Ballyyahoo the first thing you will probably notice is that there are lots and lots of cows.  In fact there are probably more cows than people. I say probably because I haven’t actually counted them, because:

A. Some of them look very alike and unless they kept very still I’d probably count one twice.

By the way when I say they move from field to meadow I don’t mean they go across the field and into the meadow or vice versa.

There was a traffic jam on Ballyyahoo lane the other day and it’s a good job Sergeant Sid didn’t hear about it or else he would have been there handcuffing the farmers and charging them two bars of chocolate and a packet of toffee crunches to get free, like he did the last time the cows caused a traffic jam in Ballyyahoo – even the cows were shocked.

That’s why farmer Tom called Farmer John for help and they both got behind the cows and started whooshing them up the lane as fast as they could.  Just in time too!
