New Arrivals

Our neighbour, Herman, is a milk farmer. A week ago, one of his cows gave birth to triplets. This only happens 5 times out of 10,000 births in cattle. What made it even more special is that all three of the calves are strong and healthy, and one of the calves has the father’s red and white colouring, while the other two have the mother’s black and white colouring.

You’ll notice that Herman’s dog, Rico, is also curious about these new arrivals. Being a Great Dane, he’s a good deal bigger than they are at the moment…

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
