The Trossachs Woollen Mill Kilmahog

As promised here’s the coo at Kilmahog, There was a coo here  who was a favourite of many for years but sadly passed he away at the grand old age, for a coo, of 23 last November, I am sure this lass, well I’m guessing it is a female as it has udders, has a name but don’t know it as yet.   I will give you a tip if you want to be become friends with her take a loaf of bread along with you, she was happily grazing away up the hill there was a family at the fence looking over but she wasn’t interested until I turned up and gave out a loud MOOOOOOO! and waved the half loaf, that’s what we call a full loaf in Scotland, it’s complicated lol!! Anyway as you see from the pics he wasn’t long in getting herself down to have a feed!!! It really made my day and the family were a bit gobsmacked I had attracted her attention so easily.
