Hebridean Cattle
Highland cattle are a breed of Cows that have long horns and a wavy coat. Breeding stock has been transported from the Western Isles to the rest of the world, especially Australia and North America. The breed was developed from two sets of stock, one originally black, and the other reddish. The Highland cattle are extremely hardy - and can withstand the high winds that prevail here on the Islands. Although groups of cattle are generally called herds, a group of Highlands is known as a fold

Highland Cows, Sheep, Lambs - Western Isles Cattle photos
Our Iron Age ancestors were farmers, and among their livestock they kept sheep. Archaeological digs have shown that these early northern domestic sheep were smaller than the modern commercial sheep seen grazing in our fields today. They had short tails and many were horned – even multi horned.
