Moo to you ...


On the way back from the Solway Firth coast, we stopped at Wellington farm to buy ice-cream, made from the milk of their herd of Jersey cows.  It was delicious, very creamy.  I had an orangey flavoured one.  It was hard to choose, they had so many different flavours!  As well as the herd of Jerseys they have a small animal enclosure with all sorts of things for children to enjoy - chickens, pigs, goats, rabbits - and these Highland cattle, which I adored!  The view of the Lake District fells across the fields was glorious.

Anyway, I think we'd better say 'Farewell' to the Lake District for now - or I'll be having to retitle my blog Lake District Daily Photo!  (I wonder if anyone does one of those?)  Now that our exhibition is over I might find time to get out again and take a few photos locally.  Let's hope the weather cheers up a bit soon.

  3. All of your shots of the Lake District have been incredible! And the ice cream had to be all the better for enjoying nestled in that lush pastoral setting. ~Lili

  4. It's a lovely shaggy cow a bit like a huge toy. The scenery is magic. It has been great to see other parts of your world. Don't worry about sticking to your title a lot of others don't.

  5. Love that pic! I thought that was a Highland. We have Jerseys here, but Highlands are rare in this area. I think they're so beastly beautiful! I think they're the breed raised by Fred Flintstone. :-)

  10. What in the world? Our Wisconsin cows would be shocked by their long haired cousin! I've never seen anything like this!

  12. Oh my! My neighbor (I live in the Pacific Northwest, USA) has cows like these. They are gorgeous, as is your photo of them. I've always wondered what kind they are.
