Farmer Rosamund Young draws from over forty years of farming experience to tell us how cows play games, nurse grudges, babysit for each other, grieve, and form life-long friendships.

At Kite’s Nest Farm the cows roam free and are known by name rather than number (among them Horatio, Desdemona, Mrs Ogmore, Mrs Pritchard, Straw Bére, and the orphan calf Jane Eyre) and they have personalities as diverse as our own. This is an affectionate record of a hitherto secret world, with a foreword by Alan Bennett.

‘ A delightful, spry and neatly crafted book.’ The Sunday Times
