The small farm in the village where I was born was noted for its ...
and its early morning calls.
This stamp is one of a set of eight from Poland showing:
The three stamps that I do not have depicted geese, pigs and sheep.
On the same day that I found them I also acquired a first day of issue of British Cattle - magnificent beasts.
|Great Britain - British Castle|
The stamps are on what appears to be a card (nothing on the back). I wish it had been intact in view of the cow's horn at the bottom left.
The beast are:
- 16p Highland Cow
- 20.1/2p Chillingham White Bull
- 26p Hereford Bull
- 28p Welsh Black Bull
- 31p Irish Moiled Cow
I had not heard of the Irish breed before. The name Moiled is derived from the Gaelic "Maol" and refers to the fact that they have no horns.
I continue to learn from participating in Violet's Sunday-Stamps-II - No. 46, this week.
