Hi, I usually do not post on this forum but wanted to share my Highlands with you.

I do read this forum all the time. I hope to be over here more.

How long do their horns get? I saw some go through the sale ring once and they had horns like a longhorn. How are their disposition?

Thank you Pyrobear.

Allen, my cattle are only 18 months old. I am not sure exactly how long they get. Mine are all female. The female horns go upwards and the males go downward. I will breed them in about 5 - 6 months.

My cattle are very good. They follow me around and they just love bread. Give them bread and they will follow anywhere.

I haven"t had any problems out of mine and they seem to get along well with other animals

The ones that I had seen go through the sale were pretty rank to handle. They hadn't been handled, I think they had been for looks or somebodys project got out of hand.
