They are a small, rough-coated mountain breed, having long horns. The original Kyloes were mainly black, but lighter colors-dun, red, fawn (and an occasional white with black points)-have since been established and are now preferred. They are essentially abeef type, and when fattened in lowland parks and feedlots produce a fine, though small, carcass of beef.
