Every day is a School day

Today Thanks to a new FF groupie Gwilym I have learned about my stripy beasts. My Belties are in fact odd because they have horns. The thing is Belties are naturally polled. Gwilym wrote to me and pointed this out. I was aware of this and had always defended the horned nature of my Pygmy Belties as an evolutionary quirk brought about because of the need to defend themselves being so small. 

However I need defend this no more as it seems there are belties that have horns out there. Here are the pictures Thank you Gwilym . The Welsh black Belty
