On 'Countryfile' tonight, Adam said that the calves are just like teddy bears! I love the adults too though.

6 May, 2012

 

It's true, the calves are just gorgeous.

6 May, 2012

 

They are like the one's on Dartmoor, and can they move when they wont to hehe

6 May, 2012

I live beside Pollok Country Park where they bread their prize winning highland cattle. The calves are like teddy bears. They have the red brown colour, black, light cream and I think the call it coffee colour, cattle. They show the adults with calves at the highland games etc. Next time I'm there I will see if they have any young ones. :o)

There's a heard of these roaming on one of the nearby hills. They're beautiful animals.

7 May, 2012

 

Lol! Looks like Satchmo - with horns!!

7 May, 2012

 

I love these,Sticki..and also saw them on Countryfile last night..those little calves were gorgeous..Adam was asking for "M" names for them...I thought Millie and Mo ...moo cow would have been a bit naff,but did cross my mind ! Lol.

I was safely behind the fence!

Thank you all for your comments! made me smile.

How lovely Linda, I went to one small highland games once, great fun, especially the caber tossing.

I'm sure they only used to be in Scotland but now they are increasingly popular, which is great.

I love your Satchmo, Karen - reminds me of a dog we once had. Hope he is feeling better now.

Oops morning bloomer! Nearly missed your comment! I did see country file, I like it, I also get the magazine. Those calves are gorgeous. I was wondering how Adam wanted people to tell their suggestions? Was it via the web site?

7 May, 2012

 

I don't know,Sticki..never thought of that ! We always record it,if we are unable to watch it..a great programme..but I was sad when they said those little chickens only lived for 49 days ..although they do have a good life up to then....such a short time..:o(

7 May, 2012

 

Love Highland Cattle they have beautiful faces.

7 May, 2012

 

Unbelievable wasn't it! 49 days to grow up (and then be eaten)!
Think I will check the website?

7 May, 2012

 

I agree pimms, I love their faces, and the colour.

7 May, 2012

They are lovely looking beasts and have such a calm manner about them.

11 May, 2012

 

you are right HB, unusual combination ~ strength and calm

11 May, 2012

 

When we first came here some were kept in the field at the top of our garden and our dog used to stand on hind legs looking over the wall and they used to come over and lick his face. I was so upset when they moved them because they were selling the field.

11 May, 2012

 

Oh I'm sorry they moved but what a lovely story, I had no idea they were so gentle.

11 May, 2012
