I am fond of this Longhorn – he has appeared in this blog before but he is such a handsome beast that he deserves more exposure. He seems quite docile but you would not want to stand within the arc of those horns – a sudden turn of the head could have dire consequences; impaled by innocent curiosity.
He does not have a name that I am aware of but I am sure he has a number. I was once involved in the development of a common identity set for migrant workers, a surprisingly difficult if dry subject. In a long ago presentation to the European Commission I concluded that as our colleagues in agriculture had developed such a reliable system for the transportation of livestock across borders, we should give every migrant worker a cow – my attempt to lighten the proceedings did not go down well in all quarters; it is more than CAP and the UK rebate that divides us.
Apologies to all those who were expecting a post on motor racing – perhaps he is called Sebastian or more likely Mark (@AussieGrit).
