in consequence of the missive, Harriet the Cow, penned by Robbin
This portrait of Bethnal and Bran was painted in 1824 by Daniel Clowes, and comes fromFarm Animal Portraits by Elspeth Moncrieff , who notes about the breed and the protrait:
Welsh cattle were extremely varied and the Welsh Cattle Society as not formed until 1883. The breed combined milking ability, beef quality and hardiness to survive in inhospitable environs. Sir Robert Vaughn for whom these were painted, specialised in a dairy strain and a milkman with his churn appears in the background
Again the stock Mr Martin has on his farm is an indicator of the type of sensible , professional farmer he is: JA gives us clues as to his competence. The Welch cow is a good all rounder,and a good dairy breed.
