Those horns look like they can do real damage. Good capture. Did she run towards you after the shoot?

But I always want to trim their hair out of their eyes!

Forgot to say that this is a great picture!

I've never seen this breed. Very pretty. I love the bangs. Next time you see her, ask who her stylist is.

gigi said...

I would have loved to have been right there with you on this shoot. Awesome!

Someone needs to cut his bangs! Beautiful animal.

Janie said...

Her horns are shaped like a longhorn's, but not quite as long...
Great photo. I hope she was friendly.

What a beautiful lassie she is.

Rebecca said...

He looks intimidating. Nice shot.

When you "delete" the horns, and imagine a pale skin color, it has something of Mick Jagger's (Rolling Stones) in it:) Sorry, I couldn't resist...

Dianne said...

Stunning photo of the cow, love it's color lucky that she survive on the winter. You have a very close capture of the animal, i hope you don't go to close on her.

A beautiful photo. There are a lot of that breed here in Vermont and they don't go in for the winter. They look like gentle giants (but I don't know if they are gentle!).
