    Not the sharpest best focused photograph I ever tooked.

    But I just like the way they look like an 1890s photograph of a gang of American bank-robbers, posing for the camera, all swagger and sneer.

    And we can all see who the ringleader is ...

    Love them and your picture of them, Paul!

    The ringleader must have had his horns curled while he was "on the lamb".

    I've walked through endless fields of ewes and heifers and bullocks and whatnot, and mixed with plenty of tups and rams like these ... but there was simply not a chance I was going to go over the gate for an encounter with these boys. They had proper attitude

    It must be catching

    I came upon this guy up on Dartmoor two days ago, no gate between me and him but luckily there are Ewes just out of shot,and he had other things on his mind. I've never been charged but I would reckon they'd be more nimble on their feet than a Bull.
