The Highland (Scottish Gaelic: Bò Ghàidhealach; Scots: Heilan coo) is a Scottish breed of rustic cattle. It originated in the Scottish Highlands and the Outer Hebrides islands of Scotland and has long horns and a long shaggy coat. It is a hardy breed, bred to withstand the intemperate conditions in the region, you wouldn’t normally describe a cow as warm and fuzzy, but there’s one breed that defies stereotypes with its distinctively long, textured hair. Known as Highland cattle, these cuddly-looking creatures don wild coifs—the longest of any breed— that cover their hooves and faces in adorable fluff like a dog.Here are 49 photos of Highland cattle calves to help bring a smile to your day.
