Our Wedding Mascots: Furry Coos

Packing for exciting trip to Huatulco tomorrow has taken precendence over a lengthy, super-riveting post about the day before our wedding last year in Glasgow. So as an interim step, please see below some pics of my favorite animal in Scotland, the furry coo. (perhaps more officially known as “Highland Cattle“) FYI, it is only the cutest cow ever. All these pics were taken at Pollock County Park, an amazing park south of the river that holds the esteemed Burrell Collection (one man’s collection of 9000+ pieces of art from all over the world), Pollock House (a gorgeous 18th century mansion), and some of the most amazing gardens I’ve seen in a while. But they can’t hold a candle to wet, matted cattle!

My brother Tim took a pic of the sign describing their names & pedigrees.

I tried to bond with one of the furry coos, in hopes that he would send his furry luck our way for the wedding.
