Shaved Cows, Part Two!!

So, since I know where the shaved cows were, I used some basic investigative skills, and got a letter back from Roy Kallus, the owner of Elm Creek Farms, just on the north side of Troy. 

Welcome to the world of the Belted Galloways.  You are among many that have never seen them and are amazed.  We love them.

They are the most gentle creature that you would ever want to raise.  I live in that grey and green house and I have had that herd in my back yard…just so I could be close.  They will eat out of your hand, stand to be petted…are photo hogs…in general…just a great animal.

To keep you updated….about two hours ago…our newest baby hit the ground.

These animal are born with that stripe around their body.  That stripe is also the way that they are judged in quality.  They originated in Scotland, brought into Canada….and the girls that you saw came from Vermont and the bull came from Tennessee.

We are especially proud of them and are pleased that you noticed.  Lucky for you, is the fact, that is probably one of the best line of these around.  They were hand picked for their blood line.  Each animal has, at least, 4 International grand champions in their pedigree.

Now, as for shaving…I have thought about that just to keep them cool. 

So, that’s that.  I’m working on getting a picture of the farm or of a Beltie to show you.

Mean time, here’s a GIS for “Belted Galloway.”
