Do I Look Satisfied?

  1. Wow, is that one of your animals? Is it menacing, or just looks that way when hungry? Love the brown hair....I'd probably want to brush it after securing those horns.

    1. No Virginia. The Family have a grazing share in two (it was three but one lay down and died a few months ago) black bullocks who keep the three grazing paddocks here down. This Highland Bull belongs to next door whose paddock is right in front of my Cottage. You wouldn't need to secure the horns either but then I've never seen it being groomed. I don't imagine it ever is.

  2. With horns like that I guess I'd look satisfied unless I met up with somebody else with a great set of horns.

    1. Heavy and handsome Adrian. There's a fair few steaks in that hide.

  5. He's a beauty! Looking at the picture makes me want to bury my fingers in his fur. He wouldn't mind that, would he?

    1. No Meike I don't think he would. Highland cattle are generally very gentle creatures and although he's very big the lady who keeps them (and many other animals) walks up to him with no apparent fear or problems. Their coat is very tough and not really soft though.

  6. I hope he is since I wouldn't want to mess with him. Those horns!

    1. Yes, Kay, and if he shook his head and a horn hit you it could be very nasty. He's also very heavy.

  9. Yes, I would pin his bangs back. That meal looks pretty dry, but certainly better than tumbleweed with stickers. When I moved to AZ, I learned that the tumbleweed plant was brought here from Russia to feed cattle. How they manage to eat it is beyond me.

    1. Lisa, thank heaven for Google. I had no idea that bangs was an American word for a hair fringe. Yes the hay is pretty dry but it's got some nutritional value and he does have a lot more grass than many cattle at the moment because there are instigators in the paddocks next door.
