Have you ever wondered how cows get their nails done?


You've probably never heard of something like this before. These


cows are in for a treat today. They are getting their nails done! It


might not involve nail varnish in fancy colours, but it's an important

all about robots. Nice one, Eric. Now before I go, just take


a look at these pictures. They're from the opening
