Hello and welcome. First letme say that is a adorable picture of your baby goat. We raise Myotonic Fainting goats as well as ourcattle and horses. Yes, Scottish Highland cattle are very tolerant of the heat. They do not particulary like the warmer climates. However, they areraised as far south as Texas and Florida. Ideally, the best thinf to have is a shallow pond for them to stand in and cool off or plenty of shade and fresh cool water. They will shed out just like other bovine species n the summer and develope a nice shiny coat. The winter is when they do the best. Here in WV. we find ours out in the pasture in a blowing snowstorm loving every minute. They need more shade and shelter in the summer than they do in the winter. No housing required in the colder seasons. Thank you so much for inquiring. We always love to talk farming. Please feel free to contact us anytime. Hope this info helps. If ya get started with Highlands it is very addicting. lol We just love ours to death. They are the best. Have a great farming day.
