Cow Phobia

'A Welsh farmer is launching an "aversion therapy" course to help British walking tourists who are afraid of cows.

Geraint George, from St Elvis, near Solva in Pembrokeshire, is to host a cow-friendly course on his farm that he hopes could spread to other farms across Wales.

He claims there are hundreds of animal phobias, including a fear of snakes, pigeons and flying insects but "cow phobia" is preventing many people from visiting or even living in the countryside.

A professional phobia expert and a psychologist from the Shropshire-based No Panic Phobia Association will also be on hand in his farmyard when the courses get under way.'
