Story

Smudge the Cow lived happily on our shed greenroof for almost a year delighting passersby as she grazed about her field. 

On the 17th November she was Cownapped. The resultant  #findsmudge social media campaign milked many a cow pun, an epic song and most importantly got her back 4 days later with a note!

Our joy in her return meant that we decided to run 15 days of #ChriSmudge where each day a new Christmassy addition would be added to her and her field, aiming to raise money for charity- the logical choice being Send a Cow. 

Our neighbours at Lovehoney very kindly agreed to match fund all donations. We had already raised almost £25 as each day we added a christmas outfit, a new shed front door and even a white picket fence.....

However  in the early hours of 4th December Smudge was stolen yet again. Despite being featured in the Bath Chronicle http://www.bathchronicle.co.uk/news/bath-news/inflatable-cow-stolen-front-garden-874660 and on BBC Bristol and BBC Wiltshire breakfast radio she has not yet been returned. 

The kind folk at Happy Hopperz donated a replacement and we decided to do one last Smudge Hurrah (it's what she would have wanted). So for the last day of term (15th Dec) WATCH THIS SPACE.
