Wow, what a surprise!  I got a third heifer out of Mace!  Why is it a surprise?  Well, I only had three cows bred to him, so I was hoping for at least one heifer, maybe two if I was lucky.  I guess I finally got to have a heifer year!  I am also surprised at how nicely put together this girl is & how well she is turning out as she matures.

Prissy is another pretty girl, but significantly bigger than her sisters.  I guess she takes after momma’s side of the family.  Trixie threw in all the color she had available, and Priss is also homozygous polled to boot!  She is a nice deep-bodied cow with a level, well attached udder and nice straight, well spaced teats.  She has become a good bit more friendly since calving, and I look forward to training her to milk.

In the photos below, top row is her as a calf & yearling, and the udder photos are her first lactation.
