It is not really a secret that I am a bit of an animal lover. So when our bus driver pulled over to the side of the road in the middle of the Scottish Highlands, and these giant red cows were just standing there, I might have squealed. I couldn't get off of the bus quickly enough, and I might have even tripped over my husband trying to get to the cows first. What can I say? Sometimes we forget we are in public.
These are highland cows, and I believe their pictures speak for themselves. If I could have packed one into my suitcase, I would have. Instead I settled for feeding them a few handfulls of grass and getting slobbered on. Kind of like living with a 1000 lb Meatball.
