Cadzand (The Netherlands) - 2018 - part 1

by Björn Roose January. 22, 2019 705 views

I've taken you to Cadzand before. And there's a big chance I'll take you there again in the future. It is after all my favourite beach: for walking, for having a beer, for photographing.

But the fellows in this first part of the 2018 series I hadn't met before ...

You'll find all my Cadzand photos here on Pinterest.

EDIT:

And one more cow for Andisaw: Chanel N°5, pardon, Cow N°5 :-)

So fun! I love the trend of using adorable lawn mowers. smile There is a dam near my house with steep hillsides all around, and they graze goats there to keep the grass in check.

It has been (and still is) a trend around here for decades smile  Not the cows, I admit, but sheep are used a lot to keep the grass low on the dikes. Never seen it done by goats however smile

That's good to hear. It's not as common here, but then we don't have a lot of open spaces either. I read an article somewhere about a guy who started a business of trailering his herd of goats for hire! He said his clients were mostly people with acres and acres of land or pasture.

smile Smart guy. His goats get free food and he gets paid smile Here it's mostly a thing between a government and a shepherd. He'll probably get paid too, but not a lot. Still it's free food for the sheep.

They are smile In lots of natural reserves they run free. They are not super approachable - just like other cows - but they are not aggressive, so people can walk between them without risks.

Funny furry creatures they are - never saw them before open mouth

They are Galloway cattle. Native in Schotland, thus very fit for our climate. They are often introduced in natural reserves because they keep the grass short and have no problem with bad weather.

We have some Galloways cows in our polder. They are very happy there. Nice pics
