Arizona Grand

One of the things I wanted to do while in Phoenix was to go golfing. With my last time on a course being September and our courses not opening until May, I was itching to get out there and enjoy a round or two.

No sooner then 2 hrs after I landed I was teeing off at the Arizona Grand. This resort course was a great way to start the weekend with the Romanyk's.

Funny Face

One of my favorite things about Simmental cattle is their markings. Other then the solid coloured ones, no 2 Simmentals are marked the same. My favorites are ones with a perfect blaze, but the ones with weird markings are a very close second.

This is a little girl that was born at the farm last week. Her dam is red and her sire is a black baldy and this is the result.

This little girl has a white face and a black body. But the really funny part is when you look at her from the side. This is a marking that I have never seen before...

If you look closely you can see that she has a red dot in her white. It almost comes up like milk mustache. To get an animal that is both red and black is extremely rare. The black colour is the dominant gene to the red.

Dad's thought that this marking should make her a sale feature somewhere this fall!
