Just needs her racing number painted on the circle Ronney. How old is that cow? Her horns are very impressive.

You didn't read the text[;)] At the time the photo was taken she was 13, she is now 15. Her horns were much more impressive when she was younger but as she has aged they have dropped down over her face. I find this interesting and some time must do a search on it - when I get broadband:rolleyes: - or ask somebody knowledgable about these things.

The other interesting thing is that, with the exception of one cow, none of the Jersey/crosses have that length of horn. They are much shorter, more curved and even in the oldest cow, do not drop downward. The exception is the Jersey/Simmental and had she not broken one horn as a youngster so that is now grows funny, would have had a really impressive set of horns.

Cheers,
Ronnie
