I was on the road to Cork for work this week, when the mad heifer came at me like a charging rhinoceros.

And not a sheet of armour plating welded on to the car, nor a big game gun ready nor cocked in the front seat – only a bar of chocolate. There is no stopping a rampaging beast with a bar of chocolate, unless she had a sweet tooth. The younger of the two farmers shooed her back towards the older man.
