  1. Cows are tied by means of a chain or
    halter or gad. There is a loop put on one end
    of the rope and a knor on the other end the
    knot is put into the loop and it cannot be opened
    except by menas of the hand. A short piece of a
    rope is tied around the stake as the cows stir their
    heads and also for fear they should get entangles in it.
    Thieving cows are tied with a rope around
    their neck and attached to the front foot or somet[h]imes
    there is a rope tied around their neck to which
    there is a log of wood attached which strikes them
    on the knees and thus stops them from thieving. A
    cow that beats her companions is tied by the horns
    to the stake. Some cows kick when they are being
    milked. To prevent this there is a rope tied around
    their body and a stick twisted in it and when the
    cow kicks the rope is tightened by means of the stick.
    Calves are tied by the front foot and this rope
    is tied to a stake. A horse is tied with a head stall.
    The head stall is put on the horse's head and tied
    to the stake.
