To avoid a 50 mile trip I rowed a small boat across a river to inspect raw materials for a solid birch futon frame. It was hot so I left my fleece, polo shirt and bug jacket in the boat.
Three cows immediately waded into the river and made off with the clothing. The bug jacket (£85)floated off down river and was lost. The fleece was recovered wet but untouched but the polol shirt was chewed to rags
