We took this photo at Gill's bay whilst the ferry was being unloaded. The driver was laughing his head off as he drove away. Does anyone know where the cow came from or where it was going?

This cow stood in Sinclair Office Supply window in 2003 (estimate), to advertise the Blues Vestival.I think Colin borrowed it from a dairy shop in the deep south.

Last seen (or one exactly like it) by me at an industrial site at the Longman Industrial Estate, Inverness. Unfortunately I can't say exactly where and the date would be about 2003/4.

Saw a coo just like that on the back of a pickup last week at the burger van.
Wid have made kinda tough burgers!!

The coo might be the same one that now stands outside a firm of accountants in Dalston Cumbria. Vince would travel through the village regularly as he loaded out of Steadmans cladding factory about 5 miles further along the road with cladding sheets to be used constructing Orkney farm buildings.
