    Now pigs are the nasty ones! Farmers joke about there being nothing left but your wellies in the morning if you fell unconscious is a pig pen. They definitely will have a bite!

    Maybe this thread should be renamed "dogs bloody dogs"?

    Could anyone tell me when the cows are due to come out of their burrows or where ever they go during hibernation? I'm really looking forward to running through fields
    of young bullocks again, they are so playful at this time of year. Literally.

    In the North Pennines it's roughly around May/June, depending on the weather forecast. Similar times in the Lakes. I think it's a bit earlier down south and in lower altitude areas. Of course, some native breeds stay out most, if not all, the year!

    The NT have taken to grazing native breeds on couple of local running routes. Seem to be there for most of the year though thankfully don't seem too bothered by runners or dogs so far which is a good thing as they have very big horns!

    They graze both British Longhorns and Highland cattle on Beacon Hill from about April; I think the idea is to prevent the heathland being overwhelmed by bracken. Both breeds are completely docile; I have run within three feet of those massive horns, and the beasts don't bat an eyelid. I suppose there's no need to be aggressive if you've got weapons like that attached to your head!
