Dear reader, you have probably seen how flooded Dumble farm is at the moment, if not I can tell you that most of our field are 1-2m deep in water, it's really awful.

The little patch of higher ground the Highlands were on eventually got water logged, plus we could no longer get there to feed them. Sadly we had no choice but to bring them all into the sheds last week, they were not impressed!

Luckily, we have one small field in the village that isn't underwater. A few days this week of wind and no rain has dried out the surface, so we made the decision today to send some of the Highlands into there.

They were clearly thrilled to hear the news!

This meant a walk through the village.

Firstly, we had to put ropes across all the driveways, the villagers don't seem to like Hairy coos in their gardens.

We set off down the lane, luckily Highlands prefer to saunter rather than run, so it was quite leisurely.

We enlisted some volunteers to protect vulnerable looking cars and caravans!

Around the corner, so far so good, they seem to be enjoying the walk.

The three youngsters seem to think it is a great adventure!

Into the field!


Augusta is assessing the new surroundings.

My husband would love to come and spend some time with your beautiful Shetland cows he’s had a really tough time lately and I think a cow cuddle would do him good I’ve tried to book but your website is saying dates unavailable.

Can't wait to book a cuddling session for my daughter for her 42nd birthday she is obsessed with Highlands well any cow to be honest.
