Cows

This is Tinkerbelle, a 2008 cow that is only 32-1/2" tall. She is a daughter of the gorgeous black & white paint bull Twister and came to me from South Dakota. What a perfect set of horns, along with a large hump for a cow. She's a keeper!  Tinkerbelle is bred to Prince for a 2015 calf.
 
#52 is Moonbeam, a Bodacious daughter that I added to my herd. She is bred to Prince for her first calf in 2015. She is a gorgeous mini zebu paint. She exhibits the watusi "Jimmy the Swede" color pattern. Very showy and loud.
Although this heifer is only a two year old, I've added her to my "Cows" page because she will definetly be a part of my herd. She not only has a ton of "chrome", but 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.
 
   
#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. I bought her as a calf from the Komoko Ranch in Florida. 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 is bred to Prince for a 2015 calf.  
 
This is Princess. She is a small gorgeous cow, and has a personality to match. She's very laid back as well as being broke to lead. Like all my miniature zebu paints, she is IMZA registered.  Some are double registered also. I'd like to have a whole herd like Princess. She had the smallest calf in 2013, a gorgeous paint heifer, and then a beautiful paint bull in 2014.
   
 
 
Cow #174 is probably my best producer of paint miniature zebu calves. She came from Washington state and is a beauty. I have two of her heifer calves in my herd which are small, colorful, and have great conformation. This picture shows her with one of those heifer calves, #62, shown below as a three year old. She is bred to
Diablo for a 2014 calf. Also pictured above is another daughter of hers, Princess. Both are just gorgeous.
   
 
 
#62 is DeeDee, three years old and had her first calf in May. She's very colorful as well as very friendly. This is the type of heifer I try to breed for. These mini zebu paints are much smaller than most black & white.  She is very laid back and friendly.  She's also broke to lead.
Here's 611, a Komoko cow that I added to my herd due to a herd buyout from New York,  with her 2013 calf.  Another black & white mini zebu paint heifer! This heifer calf will turn black & white in a few weeks. Like her mother, she is extremely tiny. This cow is a good Mommy, and throws really nice calves. All but one of her calves have been colorful.
 
This heifer was  the most colorful of the 2011 calf crop. Named Patches, #64 is bred to Prince for a 2015 calf. Sir Chief, one of the most gorgeous mini zebu bulls in existence, is her Grandsire.  Patches is very tiny. I'm anxious to see what her first calf will look like.
This is the newest addition to our herd, a 2 year old 29" heifer. She is a blue & white paint that has super nice conformation. It will be interesting to see what she produces when bred to my bull Prince.  She already has near perfect horns and hump, so as she matures she should only get better. She is beginning to shed in this picture.
