Another great flash fic - I'm certain you've cornered a market here! By now you must have several volumes worth!

Your story reminded me of a Norse / Icelandic saga tale even before I got to the end and read your author's note. Well told.

It's nice to be reminded what gentle souls cows are, and especially nice when you are able to connect them so well with your ancestors.

Red cattle are always a problem. The Irish have their own tales about them and their fair-folk owners, and going by them Talleiv got a good deal out of his encounter.
