Most people take photos of either Exmoor Ponies or Deer.  But me?  I take Highland Cattle! 

A period of heavy rain had led me along a new route.  The first five miles were on tarmac, albeit on very quiet lanes. 

But I eventually climbed up and on to the Moor and as I headed towards a dwelling I could see some furry creatures.  They were too big for sheep and too small for ponies.

Closer and I realised I was approaching a herd of miniature Highland Cattle!  What on earth were they doing on Exmoor?  As I flicked through my library of Exmoor literature I discovered that the explorer, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, lived at the nearby farm and his first wife was an avid breeder of...Highland Cattle!

Honestly, you couldn't make this stuff up!
