The Secret Life of Cows
Out of stock
Mr B's review
At Kite’s Nest Farm on the edge of The Cotswolds, nature is left to itself as much as possible and animals are allowed to develop surprising and unique characters. Rosamund Young affectionately records their unseen lives: we discover that cows can be highly intelligent or slow to understand, inventive, narcissistic, or shy; they form deep and lasting relationships, they play and they change. One of those rare books that delights and enthrals, and alters the way you look at the world.

WITH A FOREWORD BY ALAN BENNETT
‘A lovely, thoughtful little book about the intelligence of cows.’ James Rebanks, author of The Shepherd’s Life
Cows are as varied as people. They can be highly intelligent or slow to understand, vain, considerate, proud, shy or inventive.
Although much of a cow’s day is spent eating, they always find time for extra-curricular activities such as babysitting, playing hide and seek, blackberry-picking or fighting a tree.
This is an affectionate record of a hitherto secret world.
