I love the countryside around Cumberland, Ontario. This summer, I stopped on Willhaven Drive to take a few reference photos of these beautiful cows. Almost the entire herd, came over to the fence. These 2 girls were particularly delightful. Clearly besties they nudged close to each other. One is scratching an itch on the barbed wire, while the other is licking the angle iron fence post. These beauties belong to Braedale Holsteins and are possibly offspring of Breadale Goldwyn, a bull named top sire at the World Dairy Expo, 10 times.
Pedigree aside, these two were a joy to paint.
