Highland Cattle

Hair!

 

One-horned.

We saw this furry friend while in Michigan a couple of weeks ago; this photo is one of my favorites from the trip.

Related: does anyone know the gender-neutral singular of cattle?  Is there one?  I felt OK titling this post “cattle” since there were at least two in the field, even if only one in the photo.  It counts, right?

  1. I always love their bangs. Such interesting red-headed cows, cattle, steers, bulls bovines? What IS the singular gender neutral of cattle?

  2. So cute! There is no singular gender-neutral that I know of other than “bovine” – I always try to be specific when I can. Thanks for not calling it a cow ;)
