Dites bonjour à Ivory, la Vache Charolaise! 
 
From now on I'll drop my terrible French and stick to English! But please say hello to Ivory the Charolais Cow. She's new to the herd and exceptionally beautiful. This is my first ever Charolais, Ivory and I love her. She has the most beautiful face and looks so gentle and endearing that you just want to reach into the painting and stroke her. I feel like I’ve known her all my life, but I know very little about the breed itself. 
 
So welcome to another episode of The Wonderful World of Cows! So what do we know about this French Fancy?

Friends from across the pond! 
I love photographing cows. There’s nothing quite like lying in the grass peering up at the big wet nose of an inquisitive cow. It’s the best way to truly know their personality, after all character is what my paintings are all about. However it’s not always possible for me to meet my subjects in person- or is it cowson? Especially when painting lesser seen breeds. I had my heart set on painting a Texas Longhorn for a while now but was struggling to find them in the UK. I was getting rather disheartened by the whole thing, until one day browsing Instagram!

There's a new cow in Lauren’s herd and she’s our very first British White! 
I’ve always struggled to find British Whites out and about, so was delighted when, by a twist of fate I found H Chapman & Son on Instagram. Not only did they have beautiful photographs of their British White cattle, they also happened to be cousins of a close friend of mine and big fans of the Lauren's Cows herd. What's more they live about 20 minutes down the road from me! This painting was truly meant to be! It is my pleasure to introduce you to, Fieldhouse Hermione!

The Belted Galloway 
There's a new kid in town, he's black, he's white he's...striped?  
There are certain breeds out there that we don't get to see on a daily basis- unless you're very lucky that is. The Belted Galloway is one of these rarer breeds. However, I'm very excited to introduce the latest kid on the block, Dexter, who happens to be a Belted Galloway Calf. To mark this event I thought it would be nice if we all learned a bit more about our strikingly striped, monochrome friends! So what is it about the Belted Galloway that we all love so much?
