Cows

 She is a four year old cow that is already bred and should calf this winter. She sure is a flashy 35" tall cow.
 
#52 is Moonbeam, a Bodacious daughter that I added to my herd. She is bred to Prince for her first calf in 2016. She is a gorgeous mini zebu paint. She exhibits the watusi "Jimmy the Swede" color pattern. Very showy and loud.
Miss Bodacious has a ton of "chrome", and her genetic diversity is very important to my herd. Her sire was Bodacious, hence her name of Miss Bodacious. Her mother was sired by Twister, another gorgeous paint. She is a 4 year old, so hopefully is bred to Prince for a 2016 calf.
 
This newly purchased cow has the conformation I like. She is the mother of the blue & white paint heifer listed below and has the same build, gorgeous horns, and large hump.
#606 is Grace,  a daughter of mini zebu Sir Chief, so she has a huge hump (for a cow).  She has a typical zebu head also.  She's small and very friendly. She's been a really great brood cow and is the mother of two of the paints in my herd. Grace delivered a tiny bull calf on January 20, 2015. She's also the mother of Patches below, and the oldest cow in my herd. She is due to calf in January 2016.  
 
Freckles on the left, is now a three year old and is 29-1/2"" tall. Her mother was Princess and her sire was Diablo, so she's from great bloodlines. Miss Bodacious on the right looks very similar, but is not even closely related.  She is now a four year old and hopefully will have a 2016 calf. 
   
 
 
Patches is a 2011 cow that is only 32" tall. This little heifer is only her second calf and she's going to be a beauty. She will turn black & white shortly and since her sire Prince is only 31" tall, she will stay small.    
Stella is pictured at the top of the page, but here she is with her 2016 heifer calf. Gorgeous cow--grogeous calf!
 
 
#62 is DeeDee who had her third calf in May. She's very colorful as well as very friendly. This is the type of cow I try to breed for. These mini zebu paints are much smaller than most black & whites.  She is very laid back and friendly.  She's also broke to lead. DeeDee is one of my favorites. Her heifer calf, sired by Prince, will be a black & white paint colored like her mother. She is a full sister to the calf Crystal from last year, and will also be a keeper.  Her name is Tiffany.
This is a four year old cow I bought in a herd sellout from Oklahoma.  She is a daughter of my former herd bull Diablo, which is where all the color came from in my herd. She's in bad need of groceries, and she broke a horn off in the process of going to the auction, but she's a gorgeous little 30" cow and will do well bred to my little bull Prince.
 
Here's a picture of the above cow standing next to her half sister DeeDee when I first bought her.  She's going to calve soon in this picture, but you can still see the difference in condition of these two cows. She will fatten quickly on the new spring pasture. Being only 30" tall, she is tiny for sure. She has had one calf I'm told, and she is open now, so I look forward to a calf with Prince.
This 3 year old 29" heifer is a blue & white paint that has super nice conformation. She had her first calf on March 22, 2016, a beautiful heifer who will be black & white in a couple of months. Sired by Prince, Heather will be bred back the same way for a 2017 calf. She has perfect horns and a huge hump. She will only improve as she gets older. Her heifer calf was sold to Wisconsin.
