Sometimes I drive by stuff and realize a few seconds later that I should turn around and go back to take a second look.
Here is what I saw at sunset:
I turned around and went back to take this photo. To the untrained eye, these just look like white cows.... but to us that know cattle, we know these are a very rare breed of cattle.
I was a little confused with some of the color patterns at first, but I am convinced the majority of this herd are British White Cattle, the Ancient Polled Park Cattle of the British Isles.
They have an unusual history. At one point they were almost extinct with only 33 of them in North Amercia and not many in England.
I just never know what treasures I will find in the Vermont fields and meadows.
