The Highland cattle is from Scotland. They are known for their hair, which is actually made up of two layers – a long outer layer and a downy undercoat that helps to protect them from extreme temperatures. They are also known for their horns. Dawn has always loved the look of the Scottish Highland Cattle. Unfortunately, we do not have the acreage to accommodate the full size animals. So, we have miniature Highland cattle. The mini Highlands have many of the same traits as the larger cattle, just a smaller size, which is definitely easier on the earth and requires less acreage. The mini Highlands are friendly, social, calm, and don’t spook easily. Betty, or Bucking Betty as we call her, is the more dominant of two. She loves her bottle milk. When it is almost gone, she will give the bottle a big head butt to try and get more milk to come out.
