It is common in Alpine areas of Switzerland to see cows wearing large bells round their necks, but recently a horse was seen wearing one.
During a holiday there ,every day we heard the clanging of cow bells when a herd went in and out of a nearby farm for the daily milking.
Wearing the bells makes it easy for the farmer to find livestock at milking time, especially any that have strayed.
Then one day, the horse pictured above was spotted wearing a similar bell. Presumably it was to help the owner locate it while it was turned out, but it was waiting hopefully at the gate…..
