Meet Hamish, this year’s BreyerFest animal model!
Created on the Angus Bull mold (#365, which has not been used by Breyer since 2004!), sculpted by Chris Hess, this beautiful Irish Moiled Bull represents one of the rarest cattle breeds to originate in Ireland. Used for both beef and milk and originally bred in the northern Irish counties, this majestic animal - considered one of the oldest cattle breeds in Ireland - can now be found all over the world. (In fact, Finland boasts an incredibly high population of Irish Moiled Cows, suggesting that the Vikings were quite fond of this breed, too!)
These gentle giants are known by farmers for their longevity, but they also have incredibly distinct markings – some are almost completely white!
We hope you love Hamish as much as we do!
Keep your eyes on the BreyerFest blog in the coming weeks for more fun reveals!
