Now I have a few theories on why they would go to the trouble;
1. The cattle were unhappy with their paddock decoration and felt the need to move stuff around.
2. They were practising for the Highland games. The log roll (like cheese rolling!)? Tossing the caber?
3. Cattle get bored too and need to spice up their lives by doing something other than grazing, sleeping, mooing and working out their pecking order. I’m not really sure how exciting the log would have been though…
Who knows? I just have to figure out how to move a big log off the road to allow trucks past.
