It might sound strange that a cow could be termed as cute. However, this one might melt your heart.
Not just any cow
Our cute calf belongs to a breed known as Highland cattle. This Scottish breed carries a very distinct look: It has shaggy ginger-red hair and impressive horns. The Highland cow is usually magnificent to behold. Sometimes, their coat could be black, yellow or white.

Interestingly, history records show that this breed is the oldest registered in the whole world. The typical Highland cow is not very large as full-grown bulls may weigh 800kg and 500 kg for the cows.
However, they usually have excellent health and live up to 20 years. One more tidbit: A group of Highland cattle is called a ‘fold’, and not a ‘herd.’

Taking care of Highland cattle
These beauties are so easy to take care of and if you are seeking pointers then you have come to the right place.
First, note that the most common problems these cattle are confronted with are foot issues. This is why you should get a trusted vet to take a look at them.

Meanwhile, if you are worried about how to take care of the coat, they shed it during summer so it should not pose a significant problem. However, you could comb it to please the cow.
Highland cattle is a rare breed, and this photo has emphasized how beautiful they can be. We believe this calf is exceptionally beautiful. What do you think?
