The Cows

 

Culloden and Nessie are two highland cows that joined us at Scrogg House in April of 2017.  2 weeks later – and much to our surprise we had a ‘Easter present’ – born on Good Friday was Malty.

Our learning curve was suddenly a lot steeper- but Culloden was a very good mum – and Malty grew fast and strong (but he still likes his cuddles with us – even if he doesn’t realise his own strength)

.. and yes – the last picture is him in our chicken run – it didnt last long with a fast growing ‘bull’ raiding the corn!!

Our cows are hand fed twice a day and recently Nessie and Malty have taken a liking to being brushed which gives me time to have a good look at them and ensure they are fit and healthy.  They are also fond of a good neck rub!
