Foot-and-mouth epidemic - original memorial

Foot-and-mouth epidemic Foot-and-mouth epidemic - original memorial
Inscription

In memory of the uncounted millions of animals who died, not of foot and mouth, but of the cure for it.

The first memorial was obviously sinking into the ground when our photograph was taken in 2013, but we cannot discover when it was replaced.

The sculpture of the goat is by Kevin Herlihy, and the words on the memorial are by Hilary Peters, who also created the garden.
