Product Description

Product Description

“Another near-orgasm experience happened when I saw Cindy from 200 paces…..The year was 1993 – I know that because I have a picture of Cindy on the wall in my study – naked!”


At the tender age of 15, Andy Frazier was inadvertently immersed into a whole world that he – or few others on this planet – knew anything about.
That world contained cows – many of them going on holiday.
From then on, his was a world of alcohol, sex and travel along with an entire catalogue of shenanigans that kept him on the move for 25 years, visiting, exhibiting and generally participating in cattle events throughout the world.
Whether you are a complete novice to all things bovine or a leading expert in cattle behaviour, this book with entertain you, insult you and generally have you in hysterical laughter from start to finish, as Andy recalls tale after tale of his exploits – each and every one of them true.
If you were ever involved in that business, you may even get a mention – especially if you were that bloke Andy once shared a room with in 1984.

“…they can’t stop us laughing. It’s all we’ve got left…”
Bernard Manning.

“It made me laugh from start to finish…except for a few minor insults to the Royal family…”
A Welshman
“PS, cant wait for the sequel, about sheep.”

'An excellent memoir for all cattle showing enthusiasts,"
Angus from Aberdeen

More About the Author

Andy Frazier is an author of children's stories. Occasionally he writes things for grown ups too but he finds this quite hard as he has never quite grown up himself. He has always wanted to write ever since he was a child and now he can't think of anything he would rather do. He gets his most enjoyment out of creating colourful characters and then bringing them to life in humorous situations.

Born into a life of farming, it took a long time and a lot of determination to get away from it, but he thinks he has just about achieved that now. Andy did quite a few things during his career, including agricultural contracting, retail sales, sheep breeding and IT before he somehow became a business analyst working in a city. Oh yes, and at one time he was an expert in grooming cows. It all made sense at the time.

One day, he had a eureka moment and upped sticks to South West France. He now lives there on a smallholding where he shares his time equally between his partner, some more sheep, some DIY tools and a set of golf clubs. Despite all the obvious distractions that renovating a big old farmhouse presents, Andy spends most of his mornings writing and that is the bit he enjoys most.

5.0 out of 5 stars All There in Black & White 2 Jan 2014
By Becky
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having shown cattle for 23 of my 25 years I never dreamt someone would put pen to paper and tell the tales of what we get up to on the show circuit. Andy has done this fantastically well, the descriptions are second to none (the smell of the sheds, the emotions involved) and it causes such a giggle reading the tales of fellow show men in black and white instead of remaining as slightly dusty memories. A wonderful read Andy, thank you.

A funny little book. I knew nothing about the cow bussiness, nor did I really care to find anything out.
But this was entertaining and full of absurd adventures :)
Nice surprise!

2.0 out of 5 stars Gave up...................... 15 May 2013
By Hisboss
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am either getting too old or have suffered a complete hilarity bypass as I managed about four chapters before I called it a day on this book. Sadly I just found it very irritating and not at all funny.
