Here's some fine Angus cattle. https://oklahomacity.craigslist.org/grd/d/yearling-angus-bull-and-heifer/6288991179.html https://oklahomacity.craigslist.org/grd/d/great-herd-bull/6288992214.html. Actually the bull looks pretty decent, just never seen an Angus that color.

I did see a mostly Black Angus bull of unknown parentage mated to a solid black cow produce a calf of that color.
Don't know what was in the wood pile to produce that coloring, but whatever gene it was, it was obviously a recessive as both parents were solid black so both had to be carriers.

It's a diluter gene, you can't have a hidden diluter gene as even one copy of diluter gene can shows in the animal (being grey).

I'm thinking that bull is either a seasoned fella or been eating not so good groceries. His head is the size of a Volkswagen and gets fairly stream line from there!

If a guy had a problem with his calves being too stout, that would be the bull to go with :lol:
