Heilan Coos! by Magweno Heilan Coos! by Magweno
Now available on Etsy, £18 + P&P!

Och aye the noo, who here likes heilan coos? I do!

These wee highland cow balls have been made in my garden studio on the coast of Scotland as a nod to our much loved unofficial country mascot. I feel an affinity to highland cows because most of them have the same hair colour as me.

Heilan coos would make a fantastic gift for the Scotland-lover, aspiring farmer or cow fanatic in your circle of family and friends. Real cows need masses of space and make a huge mess, heilan coos fit in the palm of your hand and are quite happy sitting on a desk.

They have hard resin noses and horns that have been painted with acrylics and then varnished. Their bodies are fake fur and stuffed with yellow split peas for a nice squashy weight!

As each has been hand made they are all unique. Each nose cast had different amounts of dye added, so no two noses are the same shade of pink. Some have spots on their noses, some have wonky horns, some are a bit squashier than others… Much like real cows!

This is a limited batch of 13.

They weigh about 120g and measure approximately 3.5" in diameter.

Cows not your thing? Check out the alpacas in my other listing! Got a suggestion for another animal ball? I'd love to hear it!

Thanks for looking :)

You should make squirrel balls! (okay that sounds weird...) Make them with little squirrel faces and the bushy little tails! That would be so adorable! XD (Just a suggestion)
