Look at the tail head. If she's wearing shoulder pads, you might have a problem.

I bought a young heifer last fall at a sale in NC, she was what some thought at the point of being over conditioned. Apparently the breeder that had put her in feeds day old baked goods. Which was unknown to me at the time. I got what I thought was a real good price on her, and was pleased with her bloodline. Fortunately it worked out okay, as after about 6 weeks at home, she cycled and was bred. You may have seen her pic on another thread. I posted about her qualifying for the World show in Ft. Worth, but she is due to calf around the date of the show and a 14 hour trip is out of the question.
Know this doesn't help with your question.
