Second picture of a new serie - Winter on the Veluwe.

We have set our caravan on a lovely nature campground and we are planning to go there twice a month till April 18th. So I hope to make a serie to present you this wonderful part of Holland, The Veluwe, that offers its visitors a great deal when it comes to nature.

It seems that the high sandy soils in the Veluwe region are impoved by grazing.
And here the grazers include both natural herbivores - such as roe deer, fallow deer, or rabbits - as well as introduced herbivores - horses and Scottish Highland Cattle.

From Web:
• As browsers and brush clearers, Highlands are unsurpassed, eating what other cattle pass up.
• The Highland's double coat of hair and natural hardiness allows them to out-winter easier and cheaper than other breeds. Their feed intake does not increase until -18 degrees F. as compared to 32 degrees F. for most breeds.
• This breed adapts to many climates; shedding much of their hair in warmer temperatures.
• Despite their long horns, they are gentle and easily handled. They are noted for their quiet dispositions, superior intelligence and do not stress easily. Even older bulls tend to be calm and easy-going.
