Rural life:

Taking the cattle for milking

This image takes me back to my childhood, when scenes like this were much more common.



  1. I love the body language. Would you say he’s had enough?

  2. Is this Ireland, Sue? Some rural life in some parts there seems unchanged.
    Mind you, I have seen cows walked across a road to milking sheds here in Norfolk too.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Our local dairy herd seem to find their own way to the milking parlour! This is such a lovely image – the farmer has the same sort of posture as the cows; head down, slowly ambling along. I like this a lot.

  4. Ah yes. When I was small we lived next door to a Cheshire farm, so this is a familiar scene from rather too long ago.

    We never had scenes like this in my childhood, though it still brings back memories of a quieter, less stressful time. Beautiful!

  6. Such a picturesque scene!

  7. Nice, Sue. Reminds me of my dad’s stories of bringing home cattle when he lived on the farm.


  8. Love this “one” Sue, it brings back so many memories
