The only cow in a small village in Wales stopped giving milk but the village folk found they could buy a cow in Scotland quite cheaply. They brought the cow down from Scotland and took it to the village. It was absolutely wonderful. It produced lots of milk every day and everyone was happy.
They brought a strong Welsh bull to mate with the cow to get more cows, so they'd never have to worry about their milk supply again. They put the bull in the pasture with the cow but whenever the bull tried to mount the cow, the cow would move away, disinterested. No matter what approach the bull tried, the cow would move away from him and he was never able to do the deed
The people were very upset and decided to go to the Vet, who was very wise, tell him what was happening and ask his advice.
"Whenever the bull tries to mount our cow, she moves away.
If he approaches from the back, she moves forward. When he approaches her from the front, she backs off. If he attempts it from the one side, she walks away to the other side."
The Vet rubbed his chin thoughtfully and pondered this before asking, "Did you by any chance buy this cow in Scotland?"
The people were dumbfounded, since no one had ever mentioned that they had brought the cow down from Scotland.
"You are truly a wise Vet," they said. "How did you possibly know we got the cow from Scotland ?"
The Vet replied with a distant look in his eye:
"My wife's from Scotland"
