The flocks had left the pastures and were herded together on the bleak crest of a distant hill, whence they had been driven by the tireless an vicious gadflies. The sheep returning from the meadows wallowed limply in the mud at the side of the river. The cows had waded into the water and stood dozing, only their heads showing above the water. The few calves left on the bank were rushing frantically to and fro, trying to shake off the gadflies. With lashing tails, distended nostrils, and bulging eyes, they dashed about, as if to escape slaughter.
