I have to say that I agree with you about wondering what people see in longhorns, but in the same breath, I must say this is a nice longhorn bull calf.Jeanne - Simme Valley":2xnrkmy8 said:I just can't see what anyone sees in LH. If this is representative of a good bull calf what do you like about it, besides the pretty color pattern.
No muscle, no bone, no rib, actually looks thicker neck than butt. Oh yeah, he does have horns who needs them in a herd of cattle.
I really hate to pick on someone, but there have been several LH pics lately, and I just don't get it! Don't get me wrong, this MAY be a great speciman of a LH. Just doesn't do anything for me.
Let us know how you do, and how much competition he had.

Nooo - black X black can ONLY produce black - no brown, - yes can have white if parent/s have white.two black or black and white animals can produce brown and white.

And I guess I disagree to a point. If you study genetics - and know the breeds you are dealing with, you can predict the possibilities of color or color patterns you can expect.
Not sure about LH genes - I don't know their genetic color patterns, but a LH breeder might.
