I have found that with my sire all the calves are born with a brown/red tint and darken as they age. But I am not sure this calf will be the same.

I would love to see a picture. Can you post one?

What is his name on here? I would love to show him a picture of the calf. The heifer we bought from him, Fern, is my favorite of all our herd. She comes to me on demand and loves me to pet her. She has always been the most gentle heifer. I love her so much.

I sold a Homo Blk bull a few years ago with a brown birthmark the size of a dinner plate on his side.
