This little guy was born one late July evening. The girls and I were lucky enough to watch from the haystack, arriving on the scene seconds before he did. I wasn't lucky enough to have a camera with me at the time, however.
LeRoy and Mama are Beefmasters, a hardy breed made up of Hereford, Brahman and Shorthorn cattle. They get their big droopy ears and their fleshy jowls from the Brahman breed which are weird and wonderful cattle. And sometimes the male Beefmasters develop a small version of the Brahman's hump on the shoulders, making them look extra fierce.
