Scotish cows

The only cow in a small town in Ireland stopped giving milk.

The townsfolk did some online searching and found they could buy a cow quite cheaply in Scotland. So they did.

The Scottish cow was a wonderful cow, producing lots of milk every day, and everyone in town was happy.

Then, they bought a bull to mate with the Scottish cow to get more cows, so they'd never have to worry about their milk supply again.

They put the bull in the pasture with the cow, but whenever the bull tried to mount the cow, the cow would move away.

No matter what approach the bull tried, the cow would move away from the bull and he was never able to accomplish his mission.

The people were very upset and decided to go to the vet in the neighboring town, since he was reputed to be a very wise man, tell him what was happening, and ask his advice.

"Doc, whenever our bull tries to mount our cow, she moves away. If he approaches from the back, she moves forward. If he approaches her from the front, she backs off. If he attempts from the one side, she walks away to the other side."

The vet rubbed his chin thoughtfully and pondered this before asking, "Did you, by chance, buy this cow in Scotland?"

The people were dumbfounded, since no one had ever mentioned that they had brought the cow over from Scotland .

"You are truly a wise vet," they said. "How did you know we got the cow from Scotland?"

The vet replied with a distant look in his eye, "My wife is from Scotland..."
