The latest arrival…

by David

…a combination of an English bull with the best of our American herd.  Dam THF U3 and sire from the wonderful old Essington herd in England.

THF U3 and her bull calf

Wooz and I were just getting started in Devon and visiting Lakota Ranch when I saw the grandmother of this little guy being born!  I asked for her on the spot and Jeremy Engh promised eventual delivery!

She turned into the prettiest American cow I’d ever seen…and Jeremy took grief from his Dad when he later came upon her on a visit to Thistle Hill.

We eventually bred grandma to Watson…a descendant of the Rotokawa line.  And the progeny have been equally beautiful.

Cows generally go off away from the herd when they calf but 3 went way off…into a flood plain along the River Jordan.  (Yes you do cross over the Jordan to come to our slice of paradise!)

With this special genetics such as this we’ll be sure to track the development of this little guy!
