How does your bull paint? How well does he stamp his good looks on his offspring? Some of the time, most of the time or always?
For example, an animal with one gene for polledness and one gene for horns will be polled but can produce horned offspring when mated to another animal carrying the gene for horns.
Cow farmers use this word a lot it seems. Not too many of our hosts sons have taken to roping like dad - he did not paint.
I think to myself, a bull that paints too well is a total waste of a good cow. To me anyway, in this macho land of studs, this is more than a little amusing. Now I have this song from an aging stud on my brain.
Tomorrow, back to coffee farming. Back to supervising hole digging for baby coffee plants. Thank goodness for diversions.
