Photographer's Note

I am not expert in cows but I think they are Highland cows. In Norway! I was very surprised to see them in Flakstad. I wanted to come closer but I got a short impulse from the electric fence:).
What I have found in Wikipedia:

Highland cattle are a Scottish cattle breed. They have long horns and long wavy coats that are coloured black, brindle, red, yellow, or dun, and they are often raised primarily for their meat. They originated in the Highlands and Western Isles of Scotland and were first mentioned in the 6th century AD.
They are a hardy breed due to their native environment. the Scottish Highlands which have a high annual rainfall and sometimes very strong winds, have created a hardy and resilient breed. Highland cattle have also been successfully established in many temperate countries in Central Europe, and in countries where winters are substantially colder than Scotland such as Norway and Canada. Their hair, considered the longest of any cattle breed, provides protection from the winter cold. Their skill in foraging for food allows them to survive in steep mountain areas where they both graze and eat plants that many other cattle avoid. They can dig through the snow with their horns to find buried plants.

Aren't they beautiful? I will upload two Workshops.
