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
