Meet Agnes & Prince
This fantastic brand new activity is one NOT to be missed! You can come along and meet our gorgeous "Royal" Highland couple, Agnes and Prince, in their field. Learn all about them, their breed and their life on The Farm! Ask as many questions as you like during this session, and get closer to this beautiful and magnificent breed! We hope to welcome a baby Highland onto The Farm, in the future, fingers crossed!
The highland breed of cattle has a long and distinguished ancestry, not only in its homeland of western Scotland, but also in many far-flung parts of the world. One of Britain's oldest, most distinctive, and best known breeds, with a long, thick, flowing coat of rich hair and majestic sweeping horns, the Highlander has remained largely unchanged over the centuries.
This famous sketch depicting the noble head of the Highland cow, adopted by breeders and breeders' organisations all around the globe, was first used to preface "In Retrospect", a short account of the founding of the Highland Cattle Society of Scotland in 1884, including the description of the breed unchanged to this day.Activity Timetable
