New homes for our ghost cows

Ghost cows ‘Frith’ and ‘Skeugh’ and their calves have now been moved to their new homes for the winter so that farmer John Rukin can get the use of his cowhouse back. ‘Frith’ is staying in Keld with the local community. Apparently she enjoyed watching over an evening of dominoes in Keld Public Hall last week! One of the calves has taken up residence in the byre inside the Keld Resource Centre and is saying hello to visitors.

And finally, ghost cow ‘Skeugh’ has been carried over the Buttertubs Pass into Wensleydale and now has pride of place in the foyer of the National Park Authority’s Yoredale office in Bainbridge. We’ve just been sent this photo of her watching the comings and goings.
