Many thanks for your response, CP They do have lovely big soleful eyes! I love their horns and long coats!! That one was tame and took some grass from me

Take care

There is a farm about 15 miles or so from us who had those cows brought in from Scotland. I can't remember the exact reason they wanted them. My hubby knows but he is in bed at the moment. I will have to try to ask him tomorrow. If I don't forget!
I think they are way too cute to slaughter, that's for sure. Very distinct looking!

They are a lovely colour! I have seen them with much longer and darker coats but their eyes are the same!

Oh that is love for you to see them first hand!! Perhaps they were brought in for breeding? They are lovely cows!!

Many thanks all for your responses

The farmer was trying to breed them with our cows to breed a stronger, more cold resistant cow. I guess they figured all the hair would keep them warmer.

Scottish cows shouldn't even feel the cold because of our horrid summers and winters!! They are a hardy lot!

Many thanks 14+kitties, that was interesting!! Wonder if it worked for the farmer.

We have quite a lot in some local farms but they are mostly to be found in the Scottish Highlands, or on the road to the Highlands. They are quite a symbol of Scotland!!

Aw thank you - they are quite tame as well. I do love cows - to look at, not to eat!!

Perhaps their forebears came from Scotland - taken over by emigrants from Scotland!!

They are beautiful - swim in their big eyes!

Many thanks for all your lovely responses

Take care.
