Well have you guessed ….We have Highland cows.
Funny Story. I remember going to a farm years ago and they had these there …now bare in mind I had a VERY sheltered childhood brought up in 1960s London. And had therefore little understanding of nature and all things animal so as a little ‘un I loved to read ..Black Beauty was a favourite book, comics anything I could lay my hands on …who here remembers Pinky and Perky? I had an annual circa early 60s maybe 62 or 63…. I was 4 or 5. Well we used to come to Cornwall on family holidays took hours from London sometime’s 2 days if the traffic was bad well we stayed over on night at a farm to break the journey and saw these HUGE wooly cows that were Highland Cattle …why in devon I have no idea but I am sure they were the same …the farmer’s wife led me out to where they had a horse and there were chickens and ducks ….I was enthralled. Would you like to see the pig’s you have pig’s My eye’s lit up Pictures of Pinky and Perky in their dungarees flashed through my mind and one wearing a red beret one wearing a blue …. the little house all clean and tidy with one of them holding a feather duster doing the dusting while the other made the tea and cut the cake …..She led me outside to the barn I thought I was going to the house …..I was stunned this couldn’t be where the pigs lived it was filthy …and the pigs and the pong ….I burst into tears there and then !
This stamp set evokes so many memories I burst out laughing as I opened it and was reminded of a much more innocent time … I hope you like it I will play again with this as have just stamped out the larger image and played a bit with ink and watercolours …..very therapeutic in this day and age of rushing and never having time for you …unwind take a brush and see where you go …My mind switches off and I am once more that little girl looking at the animals for the very first time.
