Heeland Coos!

We have a prizewinning herd of these on the Isle of Wight. Part of the herd spends the winter on land on the Undercliff very close to where we live. Contrary to their rather
ferocious appearance they are amongst the most docile of cattle.We have never felt threatened when walking close to them, and they are wonderful looking animals.

Those horns encourage

Those horns encourage respect, but they are great to see.
