Dartmoor Pony

Beautiful Shetland pony standing outside its shed on a farm near the Mendip Hills, in Somerset. Shetland Ponies are hardy and strong, in part because the breed developed in the harsh conditions of the Shetland Isles. They are often used for children to ride because of their small size.
Mary Fletcher | Highland Cow

Highland Cow

There is no escaping the fact that Highland cattle are ridiculously cute. With their shaggy coats, just-out-of-bed hair, long curving horns and teddy-bear appearance, they are highly photogenic. These features are not just pretty though, they also enable the cow to survive harsh winters in tough environments. Their thick woolly undercoats keep them warm, while the longer guard hairs shed snow and rain.

Mary Fletcher | Cheetah Stare

Cheetah Stare

The fastest land animal in the world, the cheetah is a marvel of evolution. The cheetah's slender, long-legged body is built for speed. Cheetahs are tan in color with black spots all over their bodies. They can also be distinguished from other big cats by their smaller size, spotted coats, small heads and ears and distinctive tear stripes that stretch from the corner of the eye to the side of the nose.
Mary Fletcher | Shades of Cow

Shades of Cow

Cows are as diverse as cats, dogs, and humans: Some are very quick learners, while others are a little slower. Some are bold and adventurous, while others are shy and timid. Some are friendly and considerate, while others are bossy and devious.
Mary Fletcher | Highand Cow

Highand Cow

There is no escaping the fact that Highland cattle are ridiculously cute. With their shaggy coats, just-out-of-bed hair, long curving horns and teddy-bear appearance, they are highly photogenic. These features are not just pretty though, they also enable the cow to survive harsh winters in tough environments. Their thick woolly undercoats keep them warm, while the longer guard hairs shed snow and rain. Long eyelashes and a thick fringe of hair protects their eyes from stinging hail, lashing rain, insects, and biting winds, and they use their big horns to rake away snow in order to get to food (and for a good scratch!). The fact that these things make them look adorable is just a happy bonus.
Mary Fletcher | Highland Cow

Highland Cow
