John wrote of this photo, “Our host in Kansas was raising 'Belted Galloways'. They look like they are walking ‘Oreos’.”

That’s all John wrote, but I was fascinated and did a Google search and learned the following: "Galloway cattle are naturally polled (do not grow horns). The most visible characteristics of the Belted Galloway are its long hair coat and the broad white belt that completely encircles the body. Its coarse outer coat helps shed the rain, and its soft undercoat provides insulation and waterproofing, enabling the breed to happily overwinter outside.” Guess it’s the school teacher in me that wants to learn more and dissiminate my new found knowledge!
