Kathy (Trekcapri) has started planning her trip to Scotland, and she mentioned seeing some photos of a beautiful Scottish hillside with sheep grazing and wrote, "It's crazy that I want to see sheep while in Scotland, but have you seen the sheep they have there? They are so different looking. It's funny what things can attract me when traveling."
I can completely relate to this, and I told Kathy that I thought I still had a postcard that a friend sent from Scotland years ago that had one of those sheep on it.
I'm not a complete packrat but I do save cards (and especially postcards) and sure enough, I found the card from Scotland with the sheep on it. I put it on my desk so I'd remember to scan it in to show Kathy.
Well, I looked at that card for about two days until it finally dawned on me - it's not a sheep, it's a BABY COW! Duh! I had to laugh at myself for being so slow. But it IS an unusual looking cow with long fluffy caramel-colored hair, very cute. So Kathy, here's your sheep and keep an eye out for cute cows while you're in Scotland too. :)
The back of the card says that this was taken on the Isle of Skye.
