Highland Cattle

We saw them grazing on a small road in Hampshire a few miles outside Winchester. In the featured image (and the third photo below) the cow is scratching its back against the low-lying branch of the tree.

Highland cattle are a Scottish breed that originated in the Highlands and Outer Hebrides islands and were described as far back as the 6th century CE.
