[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Our local garden centre has two of these delightful cattle.
Highland cattle are Britain's hardiest breed.Insulated by their double coats and thick skins the cattle could winter on the hills- fortunately-for - their vast, spreading horns make them difficult to house.
Normally these cattle thrive on the rough, pallid upland grass, and scramble on sure feet to reach it.
Despite their wild looks, with long sweeping horns and shaggy coats, Highland cattle are quite docile, except for cows with their calves.

That is a fine looking highland cow. Lovely colours and a nice composition here



Hi Jean, a wonderful capture of the shaggy beast. Good colour, lovely light and well composed. We have a couple of small herds of Highlands in a couple of areas surrounding Launceston. TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ‘Tamar Tranquillity III’

Hi Jean.

amazing animal! and you did an exellent portrait of it!


Could this be the Irish Setter of cattle?
Nice detail and use of light. The composition works here and I know you can't get the bull to move right or left but I would probably liked to have seen this with some additional lead room to the left (in front of him). I do like this photo, I have never seen this breed before. Well captured and presented.

Hi Jean, Good clea photo with excellent colour and light. I like to see these cattle very much, something very ancient looking about them. TFS. Murray.
