Moove, Baby Moove!

Guess what I found on my way home tonight? Halfway down the track, and approaching the first of the gates we have to go through to get to our house, what should I come across but some Highland cattle - three young ones in fact, belonging to our neighbours. Aren't they cute and furry!


I wondered, though, whether I would have trouble getting them to move away from the gate, to let me through.

They discussed it among themselves,

and then approached me, and seemed to be saying, "Och, lassie, ye'll tak' the high road, and we'll tak' the low road, and we'll be in Scotland afore ye!" (or something similar).


Anyway, they graciously consented to move away from the gate to allow me to pass through. After doing so, I turned around and said farewell to these lovely animals, and saw them head off to look for their supper elsewhere.

  1. These are some great photos. Do you always have your camera with you or did you take these with your phone? What lovely boys they are, so furry and with such cute faces. Did your neighbor know they were out and about? Enjoy your day.

  3. Hi Maddyrose. Thanks for your comments about the photos - taken with my Iphone (a handy little gadget!). The Highland cattle are quite secure - on one side of the block a cattle grid prevents them wandering onto the road, and on the other a gate (the one I was wanting to go through) is kept closed. This same neighbour also keeps the long-tail sheep I posted about a few months back. It's such an interesting place to live - never know what I'll see on the way home!
