Artist's Description

A Herd of Jersey Cows weighing up me and the dog, taken in fields in Dorset UK a few days ago.
Jersey cattle are generally considered to be one of the oldest cattle breeds in the world. They are thought to have been pure-breeds (only mating with their own species) for over 600 years, but their pure-bred status has been officially guaranteed from 1763. This status is fairly easy to maintain as since 1789 they have been the only breed of cattle allowed on Jersey, on which there have been Jersey cattle for over 1,000 years

Typically, Jersey cattle are a light brown or fawn color. However, the range of coloring can extend from gray to a dull black (often known as Mulberry), while some have a reddish tinge to their coats.
For all these colors, the underside of the cow is invariably lighter than the top. The most distinctive physical trait of the Jersey cow is a black or, occasionally, buff-colored nose, bordered by a white band on the muzzle. A comparatively small cow, it tends to have a broad face, prominent eyes and long eyelashes
