When we think of fluffy animals, we imagine a kitty, a dog, or even a panda. However,  a breed of fluffy cows whose babies are as adorable and as heart-melting as the charming creatures have made their way to this group.  Known as Highland cattle , these cuddly looking creatures cover their hooves and faces in adorable fluff like a dog.

They are from the Highlands and Western Isles of Scotland. Because of their fur, they are well suited for windy and rainy weathers.  They are generally warm in cold weather because of their double layer of fur. Outside it’s the oily layer which allows the rain to drip down, and the inner layer covers the body with a downy undercoat. When it comes to digging food, their horns come in handy. Using them as a shovel, they are able to dig for buried plants.

Like a lot of animal species that are cuter as babies, a Highland cattle is definitely in that list too. Check out below some pictures overloaded with their cuteness.
