I found this image a fascinating reminder of how farm animals can be utilised in all kinds of ways. So far I've been unable to establish the identity of the boy on the young animal he is using as transport for school. The bull is most likely of the Shorthorn breed. If anyone knows anything about this image please let me know. I'd be very interested to know more about this.
