    As nikki says, make sure you stay away from sheep in lambing season. Cows can harbour harmful E.coli, so you,ll need to wash your hands throughly if you touch them, otherwise I think there safe, I,ve come into contact with them in all my pregnancies and I,ve been fine. Also worked with horses and never had problems xx

    horses are not a problem, not sure about cows but watch out for the lambs on the risk assessment they had to do me at work (I work in a hotel btw so must have been one printed off the internet or some thing) one of the questions was is there a risk of contracting clamidia from lambs so i would stay away from handleing any but apart from that I think you should be ok xx
