The blind farmer was often taken for a walk in the fields by a kind neighbor. However kindly the neighbor might have been, he was undoubtedly a coward. When a bull charged towards them one day, he abandoned the blind man.
The bull, puzzled by a lack of fear, nudged the farmer in the back. He turned very quickly, caught the bull by the horns and threw it to the ground with a bump that left it breathless.
»Aidan,« said the neighbor, »I never knew you were so strong.«
»Faith, and if I could have got that fella off the handlebars of the bicycle I'd have thrashed him properly.«
