This Bull has lately been residing in the field at the end of our garden. Apparently he was a champion of champions - he was gentle and friendly because he had been handled regularly. A week ago he twisted his back whilst serving a skittish cow. He hobbled around but became very lame and eventually sat down most of the time. The farmer fed and watered him and on hot days us neighbours watered him as well. It was a very humbling experience to watch a truly noble animal relying on us in his last days. Yesterday he was there and then suddenly not there. We miss him.
