It is a good and proper thing that they are born without horns, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Yup - otherwise they might cause their mums some distress!

You can tell by the colouring, but how different they look without horns
Tom Wilson: I suppose it will be a little while before they grow them.
Awwwwwww. Very sweet and...mellow.
Tom Wilson: Aren't they just!

Yes, I read about this special farm and all the rare breeds of sheep, too. I like your photo - I would like to cuddle the calfs.
Tom Wilson: A natural tendency, I think, Philine!

I was really pleased to see this marvellous old variety Tom
Tom Wilson: It's good that a number of places are preserving the breed.
Aren't they just cute? A farmer close to my place has a couple of them!
Tom Wilson: Ah! Unusual to find them in France, I'd have thought. He must be an enthusiast smile
They are very appealing Tom
Tom Wilson: As Martine says - they're cute smile
Aren't they beautiful! Certainly different than any I have seen.
Tom Wilson: A pic of the adult cattle coming up. Apparently they used to be the most common breed until the Shorthorn was developed.
They look great Tom.
Tom Wilson: Contented enough, it would seem smile
Lovely animals aren't they. We have a farm near us called Blackbrook farm that specialises in Longhorns, and Robert Bakewell of Dishley's Farm is where we drive past each time we go into Loughborough.
Tom Wilson: They are indeed, Brian.
a very sharp image, Tom. i like the shaggy foreheads.
Tom Wilson: Lovely beasts aren't they?

Absence of horns is not only good for birthing, but also in the boisterous stage of their lives. They look cuddly.
Tom Wilson: Definitely in the cute league smile

Tom Wilson: They are lovely!
They are quite pretty, aren't they?!
