It`s a Scotland Cow??

Yes - the famous Scottish Highland Cattle. Officially a long red haired variant of the Aberdeen Angus. Very good on steep slopes and in harsh weather compared to other breeds. They live on the mountains, but when the weather is hot they come down into the valleys to stand in streams - to cool off. In the evening they go back up the mountain.

they have their own web site http://www.scottishhighlandcattle.com

not any more, apparently... "The site has closed. Thank you" is what I got there. She (the cow) looks almost bashful, yet independent.
