The highland cattle are also extremely adept at foraging for food. Thier patience and skill are apt for grazing on steep, mountainous slopes in the Scottish highlands. Highland cattle also have two horns on the tops of their heads which are used to dig through thick snow to find the vegetation that lies underneath.
