Mooooving to a Safer Place!
We have had these horns in the family for about 40 years. We are moving them and the following photos of some nice sheep prints to another part of the house because we need to empty the front rooms due to subsidence.:-\ The contractors are due any day to start the underpinning works. It will take about 12 weeks to complete the work!:-(

Hi TC, I am not entirely sure. But one thing is for sure, I would not want to get in the way of it. De-horning a calf might not be the best job in the world but it sure beats getting one of these in the backside!

They look like they come from something like an Ayrshire or maybe some sort of oxen, or something like that ;-)

I will go with the Oxen I think. Either way at the age this monster was, I bet it was a tough old thing to chew on at the table! Well over 30 months I reckon!

I have just been informed by mother, these horns are off a Water Buffalo! Plenty of water around in the UK at the moment but I haven't seen a Buffalo! And if I do, I will keep well out of it's way if it wants to pass by!

You could be right there TC. My dad came from a farming family in Ireland and I know they didn't come from over there. On my mum's side, she has Engineers, Farm Bailiff's, Corn Mill Owners & farmers. Going back far enough she has Scottish McDuff blood. So who know's maybe on her side it was shot for a Feast of the Beast Festival? ;-)

Don't know his name, but the way the painting looks familiar. Guy with a beard and fuzzy hair, can paint a nice scenery in what it feels like 15 minutes. Oh, I wish I could remember his name.....

He sure is amazing, especially for us challenged by any form of art. Since 1st grade my drawing skills don't have evolved a whole lot.
Great watching on television, either real late at night or on a sunday morning :-D

Hi Martin,

I am good a drawing trees, but thats only because trees don't have to have any straight lines or look like someone. The chap that painted these died ages ago so he wont be on TV;-) He might have had a beard and fuzzy hair though!

Re: Mooooving to a Safer Place!
I thought he was born in Edinburgh, and after his father died he became Laird of the village that you live in? Maybe not, I stand to be corrected. Thanks for your input. Best regards, Jon DD.

Re: Mooooving to a Safer Place!
Very interesting stuff lads :-), would be interesting to see where they actually came from, as I am guessing that thee arent many wild Buffalo's around in England, Ireland, Scotland or Wales? :-P

Re: Mooooving to a Safer Place!
Morning TC, No Buffalo but bucket loads of rain coming down! As for the Buffalo, the plot thickens. I don't think they are Water Buffalo, having done some research on them they could be older than I thought, we may have had them for forty years, but they could be much older! They could be off a breed called Aurochs (European Buffalo)? A picture, albeit a painting on Wikipedia shows one with big horns similar to ours. Some kind of Ox, possibly related to the European Buffalo.
