Phew! I almost stopped breathing mid-way. I love country walking, but if I spy a bull I'm scared enough to outrun it. This is a unique take on the topic and it certainly kept me riveted. All the better for knowing it's true. Great job!
Most enjoyable! You've told of this encounter with the bull, and its rage, really well.
As a child, every time I wore a certain red jacket when I visited my grandmother, her cow would chase me. My grandmother would fight it off. Thanks for bringing back memories!
This is an absorbing exciting piece, beautifully written. I did keep expecting the yucky dam to feature again, as it seemed this was set up at the beginning, but this being referenced was to explain a little about where you lived. The ending was great, where the reader is not quite sure if your mother had that uncanny e.s.p thing going on... The images were very clear, as were the two little girls. Really good piece.
Congratulations on ranking 9th in Masters and 13 overall! Happy Dance!
