Next Legendary Simmental Bull

Postby Bright Raven » Thu Jan 04, 2018 6:13 pm

I am privileged to report to you tonight that the next great bull of the Simmental Breed was just born in a manger near the little town of Mt. Vernon, MO.

Here are the pictures Fire Sweep just sent me. I hope True Grit does not desecrate this wonderful event by calling this noble calf a Queer.

Here ladies and gentlemen is your first glimpse of the next great Simmental legend sired by One Eyed Jack:

Reminds me of the time I realized my neighbors speckle park bull had visited. You don't need a DNA test when a Speckle Park visits. I have been proven wrong before but unless that cow is 1/2 shorthorn I doubt that is a One Eyed Jack no matter what the straw says. Good looking calf though, up and sucking.

No. I bet it is One Eyed Jack but I will let Kris address that. I know that cow. She is a PB Simmental.

It makes the comment "too much chrome" an understatement.

Excluding a few great sires....
You must think the bar for the next Great Simmental is quite low... is that why you believe this is "The One"?

You don't. ;-)

No. That much white was surely not planned. Probably a show steer. May even be too much for a show steer. However, I will bet a steak dinner, the calf will test back to One Eyed Jack.

OK - that is NOT what we call CHROME. That is SPOTTED. Totally different.
Are the black areas ROAN colored??
If that is truly a One Eyed Jack, the owners of the bull will not be pleased. That means he is carrying the spotting gene. :shock: And, that means the cow has the spotting gene. But, roan color is also a separate gene.
Remember, the spotting gene is totally separate from the "chrome" areas.
I would be DNA testing this little boy.

I imagine she will steer him. I don't know who handles One Eyed Jack, but she probably got it in a full cane. There are no other bulls in her area. So it definitely came from a straw.

I have not used One Eyed Jack here. I don't know whether they are aware he carries the spotting gene. I am sure Kris does.

Good healthy looking calf, and could very well be legendary. At first I thought he reminded me of the old time red and white Simmentals, only black and white, then on closer look the black appeared lighter.
I am in agreement with Jeanne those black spots appear to look roan.

It looks that way. Kris will fill us in. She sent those to me this evening. Just the pictures. It will be fun to hear her responses.

Lol. You are cursing for a bruising. You don't want to get the Simmental Ladies on the warpath. Jeanne already told you that you were out to lunch on the "Simmentals are not Simmentals theory".

And I have never in my life seen a Simmental look like that.

I hope Fire Sweep don't kill me. She does not know I put that up.
