    There are many superstitions around these parts - One story tells of cattle which were protected from the "evil eye" by putting a piece of metal, usually a blunt needle, on a string which was tied to the horn of the leading cow who was known as the Queen. It was felt that a stranger passing by and looking at the animals for longer than just a glance might bring bad luck to the owner or lameness to the animals.

    It is said Witches operated a protection racket. Poor Drovers passing their house would have to give the old woman a gift, usually of silver, to ensure a good sale and a safe journey. Failure to comply would mean cattle going lame or sick and a poor price at the tryst.

    We didn't see any pieces of metal or anything else hanging from the cows which we passed near to Tayvalich Just an assortment of colours including the beautiful blondes and hairstyles to 'dye' for!!
