Cows Break Through Dad's Garden Fence Windows To Munch On His Plants
A loving dad installed Perspex windows into his fence so that his son could watch the nearby cows from their house - only to be surprised when the bovine beasts broke into the garden, with photos showing them cheekily poking their heads through the holes.
John Davies explained how new council regulations meant he had to replace his previous fence with a taller, 6ft installation, in turn obscuring the view from their back garden.
His animal-loving son, five-year-old Noa Evan, complained that he could no longer see the cows from the garden in Aberystwyth, Ceredigion, which was when John came up with a plan B.
He fitted three Perspex viewing holes so that Noa could carry on interacting with the cattle, but it turned out the cows felt even these were still a barrier to their friend, and smashed through the windows on Friday 16 October.
Photos show them poking their heads through the holes to munch on John's plants, while in another snap, John's partner Sophie Broom can be seen posing with the animals.
John has now decided to reinforce the fence, as he now expects more and more cows will use his garden to feed.
He's even thinking of adding a water trough for them as well.
Painter and decorator John said: "The cows broke the Perspex. We were having our tea at the time the flood lights came on. I couldn't believe it.
"I'm half expecting there to be a cow in my garden come morning. The fence is still standing but there with us every night for a noisy pop-in.

"They have eaten parts of [the plants]. I have checked they are safe for their digestion. I'm also thinking to put some water troughs there for them with water.
"They keep coming so we will also need to reinforce the fence for strength as I'm keeping the holes without Perspex now."
Previous photos showed John and Sophie's bespoke Perspex 'cow windows', with John explaining at the time: "We did it a couple of weeks ago. It was put up as we had to replace the low fence.
"As soon as we put it up my boy said, 'I miss seeing the cows.'
"So we had my carpenter friend put in the windows and the cows moved out of the field and bulls moved into the field. They are there day and night so the first thing in the morning we can see them.
"They were being nosy looking into the garden. We had a picket line of cows moving in to see through the windows.
"We had to put up the windows as there were new regulations so we could no longer have a low fence.
"Noa has always been fascinated with the cows and has been watching them at the fence everyday when they were there."
