Not far from the village of Raharney there is a lake called Loch thut. One day a cow came out of this lake. This lake is in a field belonging to a man named Henry. The Henry's kept the cow. The first year the cow had two calves. The second year the cow had one calf. The people were taking one of the calves to the fair one day. The cow and the rest of the calves followed them. Then all of the calves and the cow ran back. People tried to stop them but they could not. They all ran into the lake and were never seen again.
