Notes from a remote island

#684

Our neighbours are introducing many more cattle to the Island. They’re magnificent beasts and not to be trifled with. Any approach that is remotely close to a calf and they run towards you at an impressive speed.

The mothers are suitably equipped to harm

But this year’s offspring are gorgeous

I saw a load of ginger cows today when I was out on the bike today and they where a handsome bunch.


#686

Yes, very handsome beasts.

Can’t wait to eat one.


#687

I especially love the little Veals :+1:


#688

Me too.

But just in case anyone gets the wrong idea about eating commercially produced veal, the cattle here never see a shed or enclosure and aren’t force fed.

They’re free to roam, until they’re slaughtered for food…

I’ll let you know how they taste :+1:


#689

Same as our neighbour’s :+1:

At some point nature or the Abattoir will occur - This is when this happens

Please to be the Boss Hogg of the highlands.


#691

I hope you are using grammar correctly there…


#692

Those are some fine looking beasts indeed. Hope they taste as good as they look, especially the veal. Love me a nice bit of veal.


#693

There’s something of the Trump about that calf profile photo. Apart from the glint of intelligence in the calf’s eye of course


#694

It is the untrustworthy pinkness around the eye - In humans this always denotes ‘cunt’ conversely in animals ‘cute’


#695

or stoned :upside_down_face:


#696

Indeed.


#697

Wow, you farm your neighbors?


#698

No, but his greengrocer probably does.

Interested to hear Bob Flowerdew on GQT saying how rigid poly-tunnels on the Islands gave the conditions of growing outdoor in SE England.

Reminded me of
