Devon Reds and Oaks

 Oil on Board, 7.5 x 10 inches

'Devon Reds and Devon Oaks and little lambs eat ivy, a kid'll eat ivy too, wouldn't you'.  All right, it's 'Mares eat oats and does eat oats and little lambs eat ivy', a little dittie my mum used to sing - a wartime song performed by various artists at the time, but popularised by Sherri Lewis with Lamb Chop.

Anyway, I digress...I just liked the way these Devon Red cattle were standing between the Oak trees on a ridge in the field, with their calves just below, partly hidden, so i thought it would make a nice little study with the arrangement as it was.
