From the Scottish Highlands

Well, actually from near Bemidji, but I figured the title would get Stu McKay to look in. gringrin

And they are the Scottish Highland breed of cattle, a mighty cool breed indeed. Cows don't usually interest me as photographic subjects, but in this case I call them cows with character. smilesmile

In this one, it's actually the bull the calf is trying to suckle. Probably not having much luck there. smilesmile

Those are excellent Steve! I've never heard of that type of cow.

My favs are 3 and 4. I like the little bit of drool hanging down on #3.

I haven't seen these kind of cattle in a long time. Does the farmer have a bunch for beef or a few for p o o p s and giggles?

Oh, but you gotta love that baby. And the tender attention he is getting. The close ups just made me think they would be a groomers nightmare--can you see me gettin' that big mama up on the puppy torture table? Well, I suppose that doesn't happen, so nice photos, Steve.

Beautiful! We have an acquaintance who has 2 or 3 on a small farm north of the cities and I've always thought they were reallycool - you've captured some great moments.

The calf really reminds me of a bison calf. The thick brown hair is really reminiscent of a bison calf

Interesting fur! True corn rows!

Another sad reminder however-we've been trying to save up for a trip to the Isle of Man in the British Isles and every year we seem to come up short [wife says it's due to lens purchases :)]

The trip would be two fold,to visit some of my wife's distant kin,and I've always wanted to photograph the annual TT motorcycle races held on the island in June.

Maybe next year. frown

    •     Free market Republicans????  HAHAHA,!!!!
    • Please God, make Keith Ellison the head of the DNC
    •   Doubtful we would have seen it by now. The bigger issue has always been possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian opps to influence the election - and who knew what and who ordered what. That's the big fish. You just have to be patient, all in due time Uncle Bill.
    •   I didn't waste a vote on him..   The garbage can had as much a chance of winning.   You owe the brave voters of Trump a great debt of gratitude for saving this country from hillary..   That's one big beer you owe the "trumpers"...   Bigly....  
    • Picked up some track at FF and put it on the floor and ramp. Also added a couple sections of e track on the wall to hang tie downs etc. Doesn't look like I'm going to get any use out of it this year but will be ready for next year. Plan on taking out track on floor in summer as it can get slippery and going to put in a couple wheel chocks for motorcycles.
    • July 2016   This was the first time 3 of us had ever been to the ocean and the first time any of us had been to the Pacific. Man, that water was cold!    
    • There's a blessing on the ground.  It's coming down.  It's coming down
      Snow pains on the motor veinsSnow Days
      Keeps your business on the ground
      It's coming down
      Slow day for the teacher
      And her wheels are spinning now
      On account of winter, Mrs. Braintree
      All the roads are closed
      And the stores are loot for vagabonds
      It's coming down
      Go home!

      It's coming down
      Snow lays on the chainfields
      There's a blessing on the ground
      It's coming down
      If your lanes are crammed with children
      There's a blessing on your town
      On a lucky Monday, Mrs. Braintree
      All your lanes are waxen silver
      And the stores are loot for vagabonds
      It's coming down
      Go home! Go home and take a snow day, Mrs. Braintree!

      Mrs. Braintree, you're a chilly northern woman
      Go home from yonder bus stop
      Because there's a blessing on the ground
      Mrs. Braintree, it is written
      When the snows come over Dixie
      All the roads are closed and the stores are loot for vagabonds.

      It's coming down
      Snow lays on the chainfields
      There's a blessing on the ground
      It's coming down
      If your road's patrolled by children
      There's no order to be found
      On account of winter, Mrs. Braintree
      All the roads are closed
      And the stores are loot for vagabonds
      It's coming down
      Go home!   I think Reb lives next door to Mrs Braintree.  She's a chilly northern woman.
    •     I think he's actually you and delcecchi's hero, judging by the number of times you guys bring him up....
    •   So did you get a guarantee when we started and lost the war on drugs or is this your version of a double standard? I am saying here is a reasonable solution with the positives outweighing the negatives. This is especially true when compared to the current model that has never worked.   Benefits to ending the war on drugs.
      1. Huge savings enforcement and prison $$$ that can be used on treatment. 1 Trillion spent so far with no results.
      2. Police can focus their man hours on violent and other criminals. 82% of drug arrests are for possession. 3. Creating jobs and collecting taxes on drug sales. Imagine that save tax $$ on enforcement and increase revenue, win win. 4. The legit business model puts most of the dealers, gangs and cartels out of business. The very fact that drugs are illegal makes them expensive because of the risk involved, taking the money out of the black market essentially puts these people out business and that is a good thing. Keeping drug illegal keeps the money flowing their way and nothing we can do other than legalization will stop this.

       
      Says the guy who wants to double down on 45 years of failed policy and poor judgment.
      What is even more mind blowing is that free market republicans want to continue failed big gov policies at a huge cost to the taxpayers. We already have legal drugs from big pharm killing people in record numbers to go along with alcohol and tobacco deaths so it is not like we are venturing into unknown territory here.
