Guess the Breed Composition

Post by WalnutCrest » Tue Aug 08, 2017 7:08 pm

Picture taken at a farm near where I live ... this is a bull calf, about 9-10 months old, with a single spot of white at the end of his sheath. He's been off mama for about four months.

Smooth polled.

Reminds me of the Robert Ruark quote "A cape buffalo looks at you like you owe him money"

dun,

I enjoy his books. My favorite is Something of Value.

Something of Value is a novel based on events that took place in Kenya Colony during the violent Mau Mau insurrection of the 1950s, an uprising that was confined almost exclusively to members of the Kikuyu tribe. It is a powerful, gripping, and sometimes shocking novel that presents an enlightening glimpse into the lives of all.....

I don't doubt that a bit. I was actually impressed with his keen looking head.

I am going to say there is a Mashona look to him.

I don't understand these guess the composition posts...but I'll play. Knowing Walnut...and seeing what looks to be a finer boned animal I will definitely say it has Mashona in the woodpile...as to anything else...I'll guess Angus.
