Cows in Christmas jumpers!

Tuesday, December 10th, 2019

Here at Muddy Matches HQ, we’d genuinely thought we’d seen, and celebrated, the most bizaare sights country living had to offer; from engagement rings hanging off udders to sheep emblazoned with messages of ‘Marry Me?’

But no; a dairy farmer from St Saviour, Jersey has raised the baaaah! after dressing her herd of Jersey cows up in matching, handed crafted Christmas jumpers.

If that’s not the true meaning of #MuddyLittleChristmas then even we don’t know what is.

Self confessed Christmas enthusiast, and farmer, Becky Houze has ‘udderly’ thrown herself into the Christmas spirit – switching from spreading muck to spreading festive cheer – even going to the detail of designing the noel-themed matching knitwear herself for her Jersey girls.

“It took a while to cow-ordinate the right design but we think we’ve landed on a look worth of the cream of the crop” Ms Houze said.

The festive five, aptly named Carol, Holly, Mary, Noelle and Mariah Dairy(!) posed for the photoshoot, as part of a seasonal promotional push, bringing attention to the Jersey cow breed and the dairy products they produce.

Cows in Christmas jumpers certainly put a smile on our faces as we ‘mooo’ve into the festive season.

Have yourself a #MuddyLittleChristmas
