Highland Cattle - David Dane - Felix Rose 1989 - Framed Print - 11"H x 14"W

Highland cattle are a Scottish cattle breed. They have long horns and long wavy coats that are coloured black, brindle, red, yellow, white, silver or dun, and they are raised primarily for their meat.

They originated in the Highlands and Western Isles of Scotland and were first mentioned in the 6th century AD. The first herd book in 1885 described two distinct types of Highland cattle but, due to crossbreeding between the two, only one type now exists and is registered.

They are a hardy breed due to their native environment, the Highlands of Scotland.

They have an unusual double coat of hair which makes them well suited to conditions in the Highlands. Their skill in foraging for food allows them to survive in steep mountain areas where they both graze and eat plants that many other cattle avoid. They can dig through the snow with their horns to find buried plants.

They are generally good-natured animals but very protective of their young.
