Highland Cows (Hardback)
Hugely charismatic, the Highland cattle breed is the focus of this photographic tribute to one of Britain’s most popular farm animals. These long-horned, curly coated cows are amongst the many now famous subjects featured in Villager Jim’s daily online photographic adventures, which have gained nearly 200,000 followers.
Jim often wanders amongst the herds throughout the seasons, taking shots from many different angles as they graze on moorland, heathland, woodland copses and lush green farmland. Getting close to one to photograph is always a respectful journey; although they are normally very peaceful animals, Jim is always mindful to stay within their field of view and not invade their space too much.
Despite rarely seeing their eyes, many of Jim’s shots have a comedy element to them, with the cows’ fondness for constant nose cleaning and their serious but amusing expressions semi-hidden behind masses of tangly hair.
Through this book, Jim is very proud to help grow the following for this most beautiful breed of cattle.
