The Highland - most of the Highland cows that are seen roaming the natural landscapes in Scotland are ginger or brown. However, originally Highland cattle were mostly black. It was, in fact, the Victorians who liked the ginger cows, so they selectively bred them to the point that ginger became the standard Highland cow color that we all recognize today. The difference between genders is their horns. A bull’s horns often grow forwards or even slightly downwards and have a much wider base. However, a cow’s face upwards and are longer and finer at the tip than a bull’s horns. So No Bull Here!
