Cute Highland Cow Calf – Weekly Hump Day Photo

| April 11, 2012 | 25 Comments

This week we couldn’t just put up only one Hump Day photo as this was definitely the cutest Highland Cow calf we have ever seen!

We were recently driving in the Isle of Skye when we spotted this tiny guy. Prepare yourself for a cuteness overload.

He seemed curious as to what we were doing so wanted to take a closer look.

He than became intent on grabbing his next meal from the spiky fronds on the small pine trees.

We just missed the shot when his tongue was poking out!

Finally he got bored with us and the spiky fronds so gave in and snuck off to be by his mummy again.

We had never seen a baby Highland cow (or “coo” like the locals say) and were glad we had this perfect opportunity. It definitely helps put a smile on our face when we look back at the photos and helps us get over Hump Day.

If you want to get up close with one in Scotland then follow our guide to driving in the Scottish Highlands for the best opportunity.

If you don’t know what Hump Day is then check out this post. Basically each Wednesday we post up a picture of something that we have found helps us imagine NOT being at work and helps us get to the weekend faster. It could be just a relaxing beach, a surfing location, a great snorkelling spot, a destination or in this case a super cute Highland Cow calf!

Does this cute Highland Cow help you get over Hump Day?

  6. Yvonne says:

  8. Soooo cute. I could do without the dude with the horns, but the others I’d keep!

  9. Neil says:

    The mrs just saw this and now she wants one. Cheers guys 😉

  10. What a ridiculous little furball! Do cows like to be cuddled? Because I’d totally cuddle this baby cow if given half the chance.

  11. Woah, I did not think cows or calfs could be cute, but I stand corrected…:)

  12. The moo-ther cow must be very proud! Wish I’d seen one up this close when I visited Scotland.

  13. Seriously that’s the cutest animal I’ve ever seen!

  14. AlexBerger says:

    Absolutely adorable. I think I let out an audible “awww”.

  15. Laura says:

    OMG! Another post with cute cows. They are so fluffy! I want one!

  16. Sherry says:

    Cows have always fascinated me. I have lots of cow stuff in my home. But I never thought they could be so cute, too. Wow!

  17. One of my most vivid memories of Scotland is riding on a train through the highlands, thrilled to spot shaggy cattle and shaggy little horses with their hair blowing in the wind. But Torontonians don’t need to go to Scotland to admire a shaggy “coo” – there are a couple you can get within touching distance (not recommended) in the zoo pens at High Park. The horns, the hair, the lovely coat and massive warm eyes – they are gorgeous (and huge)…

  18. Lovely coo! I must admit that I didn’t spot a single one on my most rcent visit to Scotland. I did, however, see lots of lovely baby lambs from the train window as I travelled from Edinburgh to London. Thanks for sharing.

  19. So cute! I wonder if his mom would mind if I snuggled him just a bit 🙂

  20. Gina says:

    Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh, I am on cuteness overload. I don’t know why I never thought before what Highland cows look like as babies. The cutest things ever! Ok, I will stop commenting about the cute baby coos now. 🙂
