my boss has highlands and he's a member of the club. that might be a nice present for her. I'm not sure which club he is with but he gets news letter and help is on hand for anything you need. They sorted us a registered bull to use on his as well.
If you want me to get more details I'll send him a text to find out who he's with.

i was thinking buy her a giant molasses lick for the cattle as they really enjoy them and arent that cheap (£30-50) , or some rope halters.
there are loads of gifts that are highland coo based - usually sold for tourists. i have a lovely photo book on them.

Hi membership to highland society if you can afford it membership is OK but by the time she register the calf's it gets expenses. I think a p6e trailer will be tight for highland calf's i have 3 10 month highlands i wouldn't travel them in a small trailer. Buy her a rope halter or a cattle comb most love to be combed.
