I went to Scotland last week. I saw the Highland Cow (or Heeland Coo, as it’s pronounced in the incredibly difficult Scottish accent dictates). On wikipedia, they are described as a long-horned, wavy-haired cows whose coat can be black, brindled, red, yellow or dun. I saw the black and the red ones, but when I saw the reddish-orangey colour I immediately thought of autumn, leaves, rust and scorched earth. Much more poetic, don’t you think?
