The fire is still raging at Brookfield. Pip quickly moves the calves from the shed in case the fire spreads. Meanwhile, Ruth and Emma are still frantically searching for George and Josh. Calling out, they finally hear the children reply. It appears that George snuck out of the house to help Josh calve Gina but, realising the barn was alight, they led the cow to safety. There is some trouble though, as the calf is stuck and Josh needs Ruth’s help. Mother and son work as a team and successfully birth a healthy heifer.
There is more good news at Brookfield as the firemen have managed to control the fire. The police have discovered a petrol can in one of the hedges and the authorities will begin their investigations at first light. Ruth and David are clearly dismayed the attacks are continuing. However, with everyone safe they check in on the new calf. Josh names her Georgina, and George thinks this is the best night of his life. Emma speaks to the police about the man she saw. Emma’s sorry she can’t be more help, but she couldn’t see much as it was so dark.
