Welcome to the second week of the A to Z blogging challenge with the letters H to M. To start the week we’re saying hello to he gorgeous Highland Cow.
They’re such a cuddly looking beastie and such a symbol of Scotland, though they can be found all over the world – they’re even in Tasmania. When we first moved to Scotland my beloved came up a week before me and the picture below is one that he sent to me whilst he was waiting for my arrival.
As you’d expect at a country show, there were Highland Cows in the livestock displays – here’s two really adorable ones that are different colours including a young one who I just wanted to hug.
Our local bakery often has Highland Cow cookies for sale – I love them and my beloved has bought me one in the past.
A carved wooden cow in the front yard of someones house.
A cow we drove past when we were out and about one day.
A very interesting teapot cosy for sale in a craft shop.
In any gift shop you’ll see multiple things with Highland Cows on them – lots of soft toys, cushions, kitchen paraphenalia, cards, and even jewellry.
To finish, here are the two cows that live in the field near our house – the red one with the kinky horn is the one that featured at the beginning.
So there you have the Highland Cow – have you ever seen any where you live? Before you go, why don’t you pop over to the A to Z blog and see what my fellow bloggers have come up with – click HERE to visit.
Until next time and the letter I, be good, stay safe, and say hello to the next animal you see.
