From the ABBA
“Color – Grey or red of varying shades predominate. Brindle, gruella and true white (albino) are disqualifications. Muzzle, hoofs and switch black. Horns dark.”

Bull is 16 months old that’s most I know. Blood lines were imported from India in 1988

Once you get outside of Americanized grey and red Brahman..the zebu can come in all shapes and frame size colors and ear length..like the gyr, indu Brazil, Nelore,and so on..I could take one of each and put it in my pasture.the average joe would say he has Brahman cattle...

When those ears point like that they are more of the indu, gyr, or other breeds. It's not really the modern Americanized Brahman.

To be honest, Red brahmans do looks different from the grey brahmans beside the color.

Ya a lot of the reds, even the ones at the shows, have more pointy ears than the greys
