Heroic horse halted cow's attack
A farmer has told how she was saved by her horse after it fought off a raging cow that was attacking her.
Fiona Boyd, 40, feared she was going to be crushed to death by the half-tonne cow after it kicked her to the ground, then rolled on top of her.
She had been about to guide the normally placid animal and its calf towards a shed when the cow suddenly attacked.
She believes she survived only because her horse, Kerry, raced to the rescue and kicked the cow until it moved off her.
Yesterday, Mrs Boyd said: "I am in no doubt Kerry saved me. If she hadn't been grazing in the same pasture, I really believe I would have been killed. Kerry was fantastic. She saved my life."
