One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
An animal of a breed of cattle that originated in Galloway, Scotland. They are hornless and black and are raised for beef.
- ‘Shorthorns are the oldest recorded breed of cattle in Britain and, like the light-footed Galloways who were brought in to the 235-hectare former RAF base last September, they are hardy enough to live outside all year round.’
- ‘Apart from the unique attractiveness derived from the coat colours, the Belted Galloway has the valuable qualities of carcass type, hardiness and fertility for which Galloways are renowned.’
- ‘They have raised Galloways for 25 years.’
- ‘Their most important trait, the economical production of beef under range conditions, stems from the fact that Galloways have been bred from their origin for beef production.’
- ‘After seeing an advert, he and his wife, Rose, travelled to the Isle of Mull to look at some Galloways and knew they had found the right breed.’
- ‘I'll take his word over that of the Khans or Galloways of this world any day.’
- ‘As the Prince continued his tour of the show, held at the Earls Court exhibition centre, he stopped to admire another prize winner, a Galloway steer named Jumping Jack, who repeatedly dribbled and snorted on to his polished shoe.’
- ‘The most visible characteristic of the Galloway is their long hair coat.’
- ‘Whether such well-bred Galloways actually featured in the ancestry of Fell ponies, is very hard to decide; most likely the two strains existed in parallel as cousins through the female line.’
- ‘This ability to digest the less desirable species of flora means Galloways will thrive in less than ideal conditions.’
- ‘By working in partnership with the area's farmers over the coming months we will set about reintroducing hardy beef breeds, such as beef shorthorn, galloway and dexter, to help conserve one of this areas true natural treasures.’
