A farmer goes out to his field one morning only to find all his Cows
frozen solid. As far as the eye can see are cows, motionless like
It had been a bitterly cold night, but he'd never thought anything
like this would happen.
The realisation of the situation then dawned on him. With his entire

Without hesitation the old woman smiled and began to rub one of the
cow’s noses. After a few seconds the cow began to twitch and was soon back
to normal and chewing the cud.
One by one, the old woman defrosted all the cows.
The farmer was delighted and asked the woman what she wanted as a

Nothing she said and walked off across the field.
A passer-by who had witnessed the whole thing approached the farmer and said; ‘Do you know who that was?’.
"No" said the farmer "who?"
"That was Thora Hird."
