Isabella was so sneaky about this one, working under cover of darkness, I thought she must be making moonshine.  What a sweet, spunky, pretty girl it turned out to be!  This is another nice, stout heifer sired by Monty…very impressed with what I see out of this young bull.

Shiner is a very well-built heifer, with lots of depth, width & rib spring.  She has great legs & feet, with plenty of space between them.  Shiner is halter trained, and has a sweet, easy to manage disposition, with a little twist of her momma’s sass.

Shiner has had her first calf, with no complications, and is being a champion first-time momma, sporting a gorgeous udder.  She was as easy as could be to train to milk…no fuss at all, just took right to it.  She held her condition fine without grain through the winter, even while nursing her calf, and is bred back to Thomas for an early Nov calf.

I really & truly hate to see this girl go.  I’m so proud of how she’s turning out.  But hard decisions must be made when there’s not enough room to keep them all.  Shiner has excellent bloodlines behind her, and will mature into a mighty fine little milk cow.
