Thanks all Smile

This is a lovely breed originating from Scotland I believe and there's quite a few in the location where I photographed them, but I rarely see them on the edge. They're usually on the moorland further back. I'd gone to photograph the sunset but ended up taking more shots of the cows.

Lovely shot Pete with some great backlighting.

It is surprisingly rare to find them on the edge. There are a few on Crooke Hill by Ladybower too.
