Adam the bull got loose right in the middle of Easter Morning and came thundering along with eyes blazing. Svensson, the cowman, was running for dear life out through the barn door, across the yard and he managed to scramble over the fence just in time. Adam chased after him in wild fury. Luckily, he wasn’t able to get over the fence and he came to a stop in the yard. There he stood; snorting and bellowing until Karl finally came and won him over. “All it takes is a little bit of kindliness.”
