During my most recent trip to England, we ventured into Dartmoor National Park. For a landscape and animal lover, it was paradise. There are tons of sheep, Scottish highland cows (love these guys!), and wild ponies.


The Scottish Highland Cow

I have a slight obsession with cows and the Scottish Highlands don’t disappoint.  They would hang out in the middle of the road or off to the side – allowing you to walk completely up to them and take as many photographs as you wished.  The only thing they weren’t going to do was move for you.

There was a baby horse for just about every grown one. It was adorable to see all of them standing next to their mommies!
