Wee Highland Coos



Wee Highland Coos

We saw these lovely Highland cows chomping happily on the grass the other day. 
They were so fluffy looking - wait a minute did I really just say a fluffly looking cow? Well it does look a little fluffy!! 
I just had to take a picture. I wanted one to look at me - but they obviously didn't feel like it.

The photos of the cows are great. I know we don't have cows like this where I live.

Never seen a cow like it. More interesting than the cows in New Zealand

Whenever you show us your nature different from mine, SO ENJOYABLE.
Oh, yes I checked with Google and found the page of Highland cattle in Scotland. Enjoyed the pictures in there as well. Thank you for introducing us.

Love and Lots of Hugs to you, Orchid*

I love Highland cows! They are so cute :) They're apparently gaining popularity here in Finland...heard a piece on the radio about them not too long ago. Personally, I prefer to not think about what the animal looks like if I'm eating it's meat...especially if it's a cute cow! ;D

I can honestly say I have never seen cows that looked like those.

Shaggy, aren't they? But interesting. :)
