One Quick Photo: Cattle Coats

After my hike in the beautiful, snowy woods, I spotted these three on the drive home. Some of us know how to dress for the weather!

I'll have to go back to this farm; there was a sign that said, among other things, handmade soaps are sold here. Did I mention I have lived in this region for about 25 years? I'm still making discoveries!

Here's hoping you're embracing the day.

Yes? 

Do tell!

Update: I looked at the farm's website and the long-haired cattle are Scottish Highland; the black and white one is Galloway. (Chel, from Sweet Briar Dreams, identified the Highlands in a comment. Thanks, Chel!)

  1. Beautiful snow image. No snow here but after warmth and sun yesterday it is still sunny but awfully cold today so I am ironing linens and such.

  2. I love this type of cattle (are they called Highland cattle?). No snow today thank goodness. I'm just preparing for a three day break of 'spring cleaning' in the house. Such fun?! Take care. Chel x

  3. We sure don't see cattle like that in Utah. Have a wonderful spring day; ours started out snow covered but the sun is working hard to melt it.

  4. No cattle here. Spring has already come. We have at the moment 20 Celcious and we feel the increasing light . For the first time we haven't fire in the fireplace . Have a great day ! Olympia

  5. Love the cows, but not the snow! Yes....you will have to go back and get some of that homemade soap, because it's the best.

  7. Hee hee! Love it!. Those are some jazzy coats they are wearing! We just keep getting more snow and more. It's been mild though, no blizzards which I'm grateful for! I hate to rush life, but I can't wait for the middle of April when things should be looking up and maybe some life will be peeping out! Homemade soap is usually wonderful! Good smells and soft!

  8. It is always fun to discover things in your own neighbourhood that you didn't know existed. We passed a house with a homemade soap for sale and I'll stop there when it is a bit warmer.
    Scottish Highland cattle know how to dress for the winter. It gets pretty cold in Scotland.

  11. Hi Karen
    I've always wondered what the black and white ones are as I've seen a few here. None of the hairy beasts in our fields though, wonder if they're good beef cattle?

  13. They are beautiful, aren't they? There's a farm near us with Highland Cattle, and I love to take visitors to hang over the fence to look at these wonderful creatures.

  14. I think you'd better go back there and check out the soap Karen and maybe get more wonderful pics like this. I love this one. It was a beautiful sunny day here after the storm and I went to the dentist!

  15. Beautiful picture of the Scottish Highlanders. About the last 20 years we get more and more of these cattle in The Netherlands for they are used for grazing in nature areas. Anyway, Scotland is not that far from our country, so it is easy to get them here and breed them.

  16. I love the Scottish highland, they are beautiful ! I always have handmade soaps, they are wonderful and so much better that our usual soaps.
    As of discovering new places, I lived near Montreal for 28 years and never really visited the city while I lived there. I never went inside the Notre-Dame Cathedral or went to the Oratoire St-Joseph and I only went once at Mont-Royal park, and these are just a few examples. Now that I live far away I try to visit the many interesting Montreal's tourists attractions. Have a great week-end !
