HIGHLAND CATTLE wannabee, that's me!


Around the bend in the road we pressed leaving the town
after a quick jaunt to the Valley.
We needed to  replenish our stores of veggies, jams, honey and bulk apples
and this is what was waiting for us on this corner field.


 Highland cattle grazing not paying much attention to us
as Ron quietly exited the car and began taking photos.


The profiles of these two are really quite beautiful and majestic
with the shaggy manes and the protruding horns.


Closer up, just look at these amazing eye lashes!


 I get the feeling these two are an item.
What do you think?


This super shaggy younger one was off munching 
without any notice on me looking
from my perch in the backseat of my car.


Gees, all I need is some horns!
I do feel a kinship of some sort.
Just call me ~~ 
a Highland Cattle Wannabee!

  1. Sophie, forget the horns, just grow a fringe to almost cover your eyes, and you are there. Super pics. Greetings from Jean

    1. I think my Dads are going to let my head/hair/fringe grow again.

      I liked it when I couldn't see anything and kept walking into peep's legs ~~~ not really!

  2. What gorgeous beasties!
    Yep, Miss Sophie, you are a colour match....perhaps WAY in your past there was some Highland blood in you.Do you have any Sottish ancestry?

    1. Now, let me think about that ~~ Chocolate Lab from LABRADOODLE LAND and Mme FRENCH POODLE from Paris, France. Alas, no Scottish-ness in me but I know I could grow my bangs, I did it once before!!

  4. Great images. Look at all those earthy tones in them. Just lovely. The animals are beautiful; it's always fun to photograph them. Sophie, with your colours, you'd blend right in!

    1. Yes, the warm earth tones are so rich. I'd love to be able to really close to them. I have no idea if they are friendly or not. Maybe sometime we'll ask the owners and then go from there. I'm always wary of large animals. I had a goat chase me once, friggin' scary and so laughable at the same time!

  5. I love those long-haired, big-horned cattle. Samson's got some new neighbors of this variety. He'll tell you all about them soon.

  7. What a fun post, Sophie! You'd look cute with horns! How I wish I could pop over to the Valley and replenish some of those things ~ especially apples. It is really hard to find my favorite MacIntosh apples here! My forebears probably shared a shieling with a few of these!

    1. MacIntosh Apples does remind me of Cubs and Boy Scouts selling them everywhere in the fall ~~~ red/crisp/sweetness!

      Horns a plenty in that field, eh!!

    1. Hey Mitch ~~ that sounds like a title for one of my songs!!

      If you see any HLCD's over in Espana, you should take advantage of it and take a few pics. They are beautiful animals up close!

  12. Wow!!!! Love the photos-- love the cattle. I'd run out of the road to stop and take those pictures!! If I lived on a farm I'd want cows like that:)
