Perranuthnoe Cows Update

Hello Perranuthnoe,

A heartfelt thanks to the great many people who have phoned, text, enquired at the Craft shop etc as to the welfare of the cows. I would especially like to thank Katie's two girls who have each made beautiful get well cards for the cows. I have put the cards in a plastic pocket to keep them safe and pinned them in the barn to cheer them up when they come in for their tea.

Slow progress is being made to the physical injuries to all of them. Guinevere is due a check up and more jabs tomorrow, as she was the most injured. She is able to eat a little. (If that had not been possible then the vet would have had to shoot her.) All the cows are very apprehensive about the bottom of the field now. I understand the attack started at the ring feeder at the left of the field and ended up in the yard some 80 yards further across, which is where I came across the incident.

However time is a good healer even for cows.

For those who don't know what has happened then it is on the local ITV news tonight.

Thank you everyone

  1. Glad to hear the cows are doing ok- hope Guinevere continues to improve. I hope the dog owner is found and charged.
