Meet our new neighbors...UpDated

I received several emails from readers telling me the name of these sweet looking steers........they are called Belted Galloway. My readers are quite versed in breeds of bovine....thanks.


The most unusual looking steers I have ever seen. They have a name I just haven't found out the name of the breed yet. But they look like oddly formed yet fuzzy pigs.







These big boys may be good neighbors to us but they have neighbors that they aren't real fond of, in the same pasture are two female bison that I'll tell you more about later

I'll be interested to hear what the name for these cattle is. I've seen a few around here and I like them!

They look like oreo cookies!

Steers are castrated bulls, right?

Doodles said...

yep castrated bulls = steers

I found out the breed is called
belted galloway..........plan to get closer when the owner of the ranch gets back and we can go over there invited.

They are called Belted Galloways and are smaller than regular cattle.

Yay! Glad to know their name! I really want a couple of cattle to put in our pasture...
