Cows

   
 
#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.
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 3 year old, so hopefully is bred to Prince for a 2015 calf.
 
   
#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.  
 
This is Princess. She is a small gorgeous cow and has a personality as great as her color. 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. She's bred to Prince for a 2015 calf.
   
 
 
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
Prince for a 2015 calf. Also pictured above is another daughter of hers, Princess.
   
 
 
#62 is DeeDee who had her second 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 was the smallest and most colorful of the 2015 calves so far.
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. We'll see what her 2015 calf sired by Prince will look like.
 
This cow was  the most colorful of the 2011 calf crop. Named Patches, #64 had a gorgeous heifer calf on March 16, 2015. Sir Chief, one of the most gorgeous mini zebu bulls in existence, is her Grandsire.  Patches is very tiny at 32" tall. This calf will be colored the same as her mother. Only the second calf sired by Prince.
This 3 year old 29" heifer is a blue & white paint that has super nice conformation. She is bred for a 2015 calf. 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.
