Bathurst Estate - Longhorn cattle

Last year we stopped in Cirencester. In one of the fields off Bathurst Estate were a herd of longhorn cattle. Always a pleasure to draw ( interesting but also helpfully slow and ponderous). What I found fascinating was that a magpie seemed to enjoy riding on their backs. I couldn't resist doing a watercolour sketch. I suspect he was debugging them. Nature chooses some strange bedfellows.
