Don’t tell the cowboys . . .

How many of us grew up watching western movies and the constant fights between the cowboys and indians?

There were also the cattle wars and the cattle and sheep wars, the latter in the belief that sheep destroyed grazing pastures set aside of beef. However, thanks to these pictures from Kevin McAuley, McAuleyMultiMedia, Ballycastle, here is proof that back here in the emerald green pastures of Northern Ireland, sheep and cattle can graze happily together. But shoosh, don’t tell the cowboys!
