Richard came from a jersey dairy farmer, the unwanted product of the milk industry. He was found in a barn, along with Rupert, both with the nanny cow. Her role is to breast feed whoever pops out whilst the farmer decides who he will keep. She does not go outside for the whole season. Richard was not wanted because he was a male. Richard AKA Dick will knock things over, get in the way, stand in the wrong place at the wrong time, and look as if he does not understand, but we are sure he plans it. If there is something he should not eat he will eat it, if there is a place he should not go he will go there. He is a real character!!
