Cow collateral damage.

These English longhorns are quite valuable beasts,  but also very destructive. They got used to trampling through this hole in the wall, and using it as a thoroughfare, after it’d been taken down by a fallen tree bough. It was quite a job to dissuade them from going over the foundations and it had to be well protected during construction!

I think they have given up now, but wait… 20 minutes after I finish, what do I see? If those cows aren’t deliberately leaning against the new wall to test it… test me, more like it.

Oh well, it’s all work. They should stay up a few hundred years, but these cows don’t respect that.
