Some people drive horse drawn wagons… but this way of travelling is still too fast for Thomas and Laurent!
Therefore, the two friends set out on an unusual adventure : going on tour with two lovely Normandy cows!
Thomas ”Carabistouille” is a storyteller who is used to travelling with his gypsy caravan. Laurent Legal is an experienced teamster who works with a yoke of oxen: plowing, hauling logs out of forests… I met them some years ago when they created a Bovine Show called ”The Boeufbylette:” it was a funny collection of vintage motorcycles drawn by ”Sergent” and ”Major,” two peaceful and sturdy oxen from a local rustic breed. Riding on that incredible trailer was great fun!
In April, Thomas and Laurent set off again with their caravan and their henhouse-on-wheels for a storytelling tour in Western France.
This time, they are travelling with Daphné and Dalhia, two young cows. They are moving forward very slowly on the roads of the countryside (2.5 mph), offering their services in towns and villages: school bus service, activities for children…
Here are two shorts videos (a movie is planned):

As Thomas says : ”Drive bovinely, drive serenely”!
