Splendid Bulls

Highland Cattle, originally uploaded by victoria.wallop.

I took this photo on a freezing day at the Suffolk Show last summer. They are rather beautiful don’t you think?

Tara at Sticky Fingers has started a new photo link up. This week, her topic is beauty.

    I wish my hair was as silky looking and gorgeously coloured as that of the beauty on the left!

      I know, imagine the hours of grooming that went into getting him looking so splendid.

    I love Highland cows, there’s one at Heaton Park a fantastic park near us in Manchester. We used to just call it “big fluffy cow” until I found out the proper name from the picture on a box of M&S shortbread!

    I love Bulls and coes but then my FIL is a dairy farmer, Annie at Incessant Ramblings did a cow for her Beauty picture.

    oh they really are. The hair looks so silky and soft – what wonderful animals and a great photo!

      There were whole barns full of beautiful animals, who’d all been preened and primped to within an inch of their lives.

    Oh they remind me of my honeymoon! We saw more highland cows than people that week 🙂

    They ARE beautiful. Great photo!

      Reminding people of their honeymoons is a good thing.

    I always wanted Highland cattle in the garden….there is something so cute about them. Great Picture.

      They are rather gorgeous aren’t they?

    Wow, you’d have to be super brave to stick girlie ribbons on a head with horns that big!
    Great picture 🙂

      Some of them looked really hard to control, they had a mean look in their eyes!

    Fabulous! My son’s hair looks a bit like that at the minute.
    Will have to keep reading your blog as it’s travel-related like mine – though very impressed by your planned trip!

      You’ve travelled fur farther afield with your children than I’ve been brave enough to do so far. I need to have a good poke around your blog too.

    Yes, they are really beautiful. I adore Highland Cattle.

    Pointless fact – My husband has an irrational fear of cows. I used to take great pleasure in making him walk through fields of them in the Yorkshire Dales. I am slightly evil. 😀

    Those are gorgeous looking cows indeed!

      My husband is also scared of cows, horses, sheep, pretty much any animal bigger than a cat. He claims it isn’t irrational, that if the cow took a dislike to him, he’d do some serious damage. I also goad him when walking through fields!
