“A serious sense of humour”

“The cow took aim. She came straight at Walter. Everybody – the owner of the cow, Andre van Heerden; his farm workers; Walter’s friend Willem, who had come for the ride; each and every one froze. They all held their breaths. It was clear that there was no way Walter could manage to get out of the cow’s path in time. Although she was sick, very sick in fact, she developed a hefty speed over the short distance, and she had some mighty forward pointing horns…”

It wasn’t this beautiful specimen though that Walter tackled in the chapter “A Serious Sense of Humour”, about halfway through ‘Healing Rhinos and Other Souls’ – I met her a couple of days ago and she was really friendly  🙂
