These lockdown hairstyles are killing me

By waltknox
A Highland cow from a farm nearby where we buy our eggs ...the owners are wonderful people and let my daughter and I get close to the cattle for some photos. I will post some more of their adorable calves sometime soon as well.
The Highland breed are smaller than conventional cattle but the trade off is they have leaner meat which is in demand and the farmer can also make money on the prized hides and artists will buy the skull/horns for
Carving . They do well living in Canada's frigid winters and are very docile in nature as easy to handle.
I could not do this for a living as I would get too attached to those cute faces to send them off to market !!

thx for looking in and for your great comments and votes for Charlie the horse
best regards walt

Take all the hair away and he's probably half that size. Love the shadows and clear sky.

I have a great fondness for the Highland Cattle---a wonderful image here!

A neighbor had a herd of 'Coos' for awhile--- Sadly, during one very warm summer day all 4 of his bulls died from heat exhaustion---He had the local fire company attempting to cool them with their hoses--- Alberta is a much better home for these rugged, shaggy cattle---and yes, they look fierce but are generally very docile!

Looks like he would be about as warm in winter as a bison. A wonderful photo, Walt. And what a set of horns!

And thank you so much for your Moose award.
