Two Miles Smith Farm

Two Miles Smith Farm Scottish Highland steers traveled 2,000 miles from New Hampshire to Sedalia, Colo. The steers, Walter, left, and Gilligan, a birthday present for Kristi Wiebe, made it to their new home just in time.

A grand gesture loses grandeur when the presentation goes awry. Then it becomes a wet firecracker, a towering foul ball, an uncompleted pass. So when a guy named Darcy in Sedalia, Colorado, decided to give his wife, Kristi, a couple of my shaggy, long-horned Scottish Highland steers, they had to be presented on her birthday — Feb. 26.

Kristi is a photographer who fell in love with Highland cattle, among the most picturesque creatures on Earth. She had been longing for a pair of her own.
