Bonita - Bonita was a young heifer out of Lucia (don't know the age) before we got her. She has had one calf, Manolete the grullo bull, in 2009.
Cholula - Lucia's second heifer calf. 5/24/2007. Cholula belongs to Stewart Stonger.
Luciana - (see picture above) Lucia's third heifer calf out of Trullo (a beautiful grullo bull who is now the Texas State Herd Sire). Fall (October) 2010. (Grullo means "gray" when referring to Longhorn cattle).
Conchita - Lucia's fourth heifer calf out of the great bull Toreo. Born 5/11/2010
Pure Longhorn Bulls
Chico - out of Holga and Quitachon Summer 2007
Manolete - out of Bonita and Trullo 7/27/2009
Joselito - out of Cholula and Toreo 5/12/2010
I also have these non-pure or non-pure Longhorn cattle:
Pita - 1/4 Watusi, Summer 2007
Petra - 1/8 Watusi, Summer 2009
Buelah - Holstein heifer, due to calf sometime soon?!?
Kate - Jersey cow, due to calf in the next 30 days.
Captain - young Jersey Bull
So that is the run-down of the census of my cattle enterprise.
I am going to be selling some of these (primarily bulls and non-Longhorns) if anyone is interested. Also, David and I are looking for some lease land to which we would like to move a portion of our herd (which has grown to large for our ranch). If you know anyone who has some land for lease, or who would like to work with me to get into the Longhorn business very cheaply, let me know.
Your servant in Christ Jesus,
