Highland cattle

Our hike in the large and wonderful region of Westerwolde last Sunday went right through an area where a group of Highland cattle were grazing. They watched us pass by and posed for a photo without protest, I guess they are used to people walking by.

Though their horns are impressively big, they are known as generally good-natured animals. This one's a beauty, don't you think?

I'm linking to Eileen's Saturday's Critters.

  4. is that frost I see Marleen? I guess the highland cattle are conditioned for that with their wonderful furry coats. Those horns might put people off walking by them, but not me.

    1. Hi Phil, I agree it looks a bit like frost but it wasn't, not last Sunday. I guess it's the light that colours the grass grey.
