There are also Walliser and Danish landrace goats, and a local kind of sheep (Marskfår). They care for 120 hectares of greenspace, providing grazing and browsing services that contribute to the diversity of habitats in the park. They also control the dangerous giant hogweed plants. The animals are cared for by three municipal staff.
I biked by today, and saw that they calves were looking hale and happy! Even though I grew up around Angus cattle, and they will always have a special place in my heart, I have an unsurpassed love for the Highland breed. I find them excessively charming; especially the young’uns.
