Well mine is still a bit rounded but not what she was and also no babies yet so I am going to assume that she isnt pregnant any more which is a shame really.
Anyone else had anything go on with these herefords?
MIne are fairly big they looked about 10 weeks when I picked them up. I will keep an eye on them for another couple of days but after that I'll have to start thinking about choosing a buck, I think it will probably be one of the blue bucks.
Of course I will, once I get enough or any.....I'm still suspicious that these hereford does just like to bloat out and pretend to be pregnant! I should have the babies within the week if she is really pregnant and thye should all be black. I cant find much out about the hereford genetics so I've no idea what the markings will look like as its an outcross with a blue self?
He wasn't very forthcoming, lol. I did ask about age and genetics and stuff. All I found out was that the hereford bit was dominant. And it must have double chocolate to show chocolate. Eh, my genetics are rubbish.
So all of the babies should have hereford markings, I doubt they would be proper showable hereford markings unless you put hereford x hereford but it gives a bit of space to improve the line which is a good thing.
All of the ones he gave away were quite heavily faulted, he was saying. I couldn't tell if he was saying it was a fault for the white to go inside or outside the eye, but they all had that fault one side or both. And some had white ticking.
I've got one which has a good face but very litlte white on the under and no stop on the tail and the other one he recommended me to take, she has a bit too much white on the face but an ideal under and tail stop. It's seems quite a complicated variet with all the differnet elements, I'm not going to take it too seriously or I'll have a melt down the hereofrds will be a nice relaxing almost hobby line. Unless my competative edge kicks in!
3 Babies, only 1 doe and 2 bucks! They are humungous and considering they were born during the night they were so easy to sex. They seem strangely well developed they even have quite dark pigment, I can tell they are going to be black already and no sign of markings yet, I have my fingers crossed though. Its as if they were born days ago and I missed it, I didnt by the way!
