Nelly was born furry, and keeps a fairly thick coat even through the summer.

Highland cows are well suited to northern winters and poor pastures. They eat more scruff and browse than typical cattle. So you'd think I'd want to jump in with both feet, right?
Their meat also has a taste of it's own. I can't really explain it. Some people say it's more gamey. It doesn't taste like any deer or moose I've ever eaten though. Slightly lamby? Maybe goat-like? I've never eaten goat myself. At any rate, not my preference.
Mind you- the most delicious beef I've ever tasted, was Dorie's calf, Casper. His Daddy was angus.

This furry little beast is the future. She looks little in the picture, but Nelly's a good 50 feet or so behind her. She's a big little girl. Her fur is long and thick. She's at least 1/4 holstein and 1/2 beef. (Toothless' and Dorie's daughter).
