Highland Cattle Laying: Porcelain, Mohair and Stone

Alternative Views:

All my creatures are handcrafted in my Asheville, NC studio using porcelain, castable stone and imported woven fur from Steiff-Schulte in Germany. I hope you like the new fur. Please note that I make seven different horn styles. If you prefer a style other than the one shown on the position that you like, please let me know and I'll send the one you want. Also, either animal can look up or down, so if you prefer something other than the two that are shown, please let me know.The horns are all interchangeable and they're identified by a letter. In the photo, the one on the left is "K" and the right is"N". They will come with the one shown unless you specify otherwise.

Breed Description

The Heilan Coo is such a glorious symbol of Scotland. They look so rugged (and they are), but farmers have told me wonderful tales of how docile they can be, as well. My favorite story is of a Highland that would wait at the farmer's front door in the morning for breakfast, just like a dog, with his head almost touching the door.

Highand cattle are a Scottish breed of cattle with long horns and long wavy coats which are coloured black, brindled, red, yellow or dun. Highlands are known as a hardy breed due to the rugged nature of their native Scottish Highlands, with high rainfall and very strong winds. Highland cattle have been successfully established in many temperate countries and indeed in countries where winters are substantially colder than Scotland's such as in central Europe and Canada. Their hair gives protection during the cold winters and their skill in looking for food allows them to survive in steep mountain areas. They both graze and browse and eat plants which many other cattle avoid. --info via Wikipedia
