Even before the race started, we had cows! Cowrespondent Chris, of the YarraBUG Radio team, tweeted a link to the weather cam on the Brittany coast, near Morbihan. Essjaymoo checked it out and noticed cows.
This buoyed our hopes of a cow-friendly stage and we were not disappointed. As early as 92.6km we were able to spot some beasts not dissimilar to the above cows. They were far too indistinct to even attempt a positive ID, so naturally I’m going to tell you that my prediction was correct and we spotted Maine-Anjou. At 65.6km we got our first sighting of black pied cattle. Could it be a group of the rare Pie Noir?
