Smooth polled.

There's got to be some Black Angus, and perhaps some.. Gelbvieh?

I just said I'd do it after the kids went to bed; I never specified doing it last night.

...in all honesty, I forgot about doing that after my son wanted me to read one of my favorite bed-time stories until it was well past MY time to go to bed...this is the first I've gotten to it.

Details below in the next post. :)

Wrong, but my favorite answer! HA!

A fascinating guess ... but, nope.

Since you guessed what you raise, I find this an interesting guess. Wrong, though.

3/8ths correct

Dam -- WR736, one of our fullblood Mashona cows

So, how do you like your chicken dinner?
