I have it on good authority that yarb is a mardy-arsed cow.

Yes, adding "-arse(d)" to an adjective (usually ending in 'y' and with negative connotations) is a common construction which seems to be nothing but a linguistic tic; at least I don't think it alters the intensity of the adjective.Adjectives commonly modified thus: lazy, scruffy, hairy.

also appears in the construction mardy-arse(d) (not to be confused with mardi gras)
adj. disgruntled, foul-tempered, stroppy, recalcitrant, obstreporous, cantankerous.More commonly applied to females than males in my experience, particularly modifying cow.e.g. "My boss has been a right mardy cow this week, I don't know what her problem is."
