Various thoughts and travels
A real longhorn!
Debra - I don't think she is. The legs are too short, the spread on the horns are too narrow nor are they heavy enough for a mature animal. I'd call it a milking shorthorn except the bag isn't big enough. Right coloring though for both the longhorn and shorthorn. Wonder if she is some kind of cross?Did a little research there is a shorthorn that is a beef cattle breed so maybe that?
Cattle in the Cypress Hills are raised for beef. This young cow had a buff-coloured calf that was Charolais in appearance.I was raised on a small farm in Saskatchewan and we had a Charolais bull that was gentle enough that he could be petted...he didn't have a problem with people being "up close and personal."
