Shetland Cattle, Rifle Range - November 2015

These beautiful Shetland Cattle are currently grazing on the Rifle Range Nature Reserve in my hometown of Kidderminster.

As I live next door to the reserve I often take time out for a stroll and see these amazing animals on a regular basis. They are remarkably friendly… quite happy for me to stand amongst the herd whilst taking photographs and on occasion coming right up to me, as if to see what on earth it is I'm doing.

Shetland Cattle are considered to be 'at risk' by the rare breeds association… something I find desperately sad. They are utterly wonderful creatures...
