Outstanding in Their Field

I like cows. I really like herefords. They are quiet and docile - at least the ones I have been around. Originally from Herefordshire, England more than five million pedigree Hereford cattle now exist in over 50 countries. The Hereford cattle export trade began from England in 1817, starting in Kentucky, United States and then spreading across the United States and Canada. These outstanding herefords simply stood in the middle of the remains of a large round hay bale. It was breakfast, lunch and supper on a rather cold, cloudy and sometimes snowy day. Apparently three is not a crowd for herefords.

Phil,

I really like this. The rancher who leases our pastures run Black Angus, which seems to be more prevalent now, but on a neigboring ranch there are herefords. You have captured this group very nicely.

Thank you Joe... sometimes the paint flows. I am getting a lot more time to paint now and having lots of fun with it.
