Well, I think I've settled on the 4 replacements I like... they're terribly hard to get good side shots of.. they're always coming toward me


Pookie, Dusty and Zeus

I like Pookie. The name is catchy. Lol

Mine do the same thing. They come toward me. If you do get them to stop, they have that rigid look with their back legs tensed so they look straight.

All the parents are 1/2 Gelbvieh, Hector was the sire, 1/2 GV, 1/4 SH, 1/4 Herf
The dams of Pookie, Dusty and Zippy are all full sisters, 1/2 Gv, 1/4SH, 1/8 Salers, 1/8th Herf I'm kinda curious to see how a bunch of very closely related girls perform compared to each other

The dam of Peggy is 1/2 Gelbvieh, 1/4 SH, 1/8 Salers and 1/8th of a different Herf/Angus cow

Dusty was looking at a Sandhill crane with intense curiosity, so I was able to get a decent side shot

Do a little more digging down that road and you should be able to find me

A little piece of heaven,
that is for sure.
Gelbvieh, salers and herfs,
cattleman's cross for a cure.

Mountains, rivers, and grass,
with a view of open sky.
It's breathtaking of sorts,
and enough to get you high.

Dozers, trucks, and tractors,
to get the work done.
And the creek to irrigate,
makes life almost fun.

The cattle are named,
or so we're told.
Pookie, Dusty and Zeus,
live on Texas Creek Road.

I think you need to adopt me, I don't eat much and don't require frequent flea treatment!

That's great!

The water comes from the creek not the river though (creek is just to the left (north) of the gate)

i fixed it. i realized later you probably didn't get the water from a 500' difference in elevation.
