Not Moooving Anywhere

These cows on the edge of the Oxford near the village of Wytham have had there movements limited with the outbreak of foot and mouth disease in Surrey late on Thursday. The Government has banned the movement of all livestock within the United Kingdom in order to try and contain foot and mouth spreading. The farmers in Oxford are having a bad run with the flooding a last week and now this, lets hope that this can be resolved quickly.

I so love this picture but it is very poignant. Foot and mouth again - how terrible!! I only hope the authorities can retain it quickly so the animals and the farmers do not have to go thru all that misery again!!!!
