Photographer's Note

Still at Haddon Hall. As we approached the Hall we encountered this group of cattle, English Longhorns.
Quite content in their field, munching the grass and not minding all the visitors who stopped to take some shots!

English Longhorns are a long-horned brown and white breed of beef cattle originating from Craven, in the North of England.
The breed was initially used as a draught animal which its body is well suited for;the milk was also collected for butter and cheese because of the high butterfat content.

The notable long curved horns that serve to distinguish this breed from others can make an individual appear aggressive, although by temperament they are usually friendly.
They have a white patch along the line of their spine and under their bellies.
They are not to be confused with the Texas Longhorn breed.
The English Longhorn have curved horns that tend to grow down around the face, framing it.

You can just see a tiny part of the Hall in the background.
Thanks for looking.
