The cow whisperer

Posted by Andy Heathcote & Heike Bachelier (Creator)

Hello all. 

We are nearly 70% funded now - thank you so much for everything so far!

The last three days have really picked up with the Kickstarter which is wonderful, many thanks and a big hello to all you new supporters.

We know we still have a way to go, and it will be a busy weekend. Personally we'd love to have visited a farm for "Open Farm Sunday" but I think we'll be sweating beside our computers. If you are off to visit a farm we hope you love it.

For today's update here is a scene we are really excited to share. When we were at Sundance, ABC News christened Steve "the British cow whisperer" - you'll see why. Enjoy it, share it, please tell your friends about it...

      Lovely, but as I'm hard of hearing I didn't know what he was saying. Please would you use subtitles so that the 1,000's of deaf and hard of hearing folk can enjoy as much as the hearing people.
