Brahman cow

While I was taking the photo of the calf that I showed yesterday, this cow kept a close eye on me.  I think it wanted to make sure I kept my distance.  It worked.  I did.

The large hump on their shoulders, the floppy ears, and the dewlap skin below the chin are distinctive traits of Brahman cattle.  They are the most popular cattle in our area because they tolerate the warm climate very well.

We have photos from Julie's recent raft trip through the Grand Canyon posted this week on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.  I have hiked to the bottom of the Grand Canyon (and back up), but have never rafted through it, which is a far superior experience.

Yes, I'd keep my distance, too. I think that the calf you showed yesterday is a million times "cuter" than mama.

they look like friendly puppies with those long ears

Not quite as cute as the calf but, still those ears add a certain charm.

I know where there is a big bull near here who would like to meet this lovely cow.

And not a Hindu for miles and miles around.

Your post makes me think of a story from the 1966 baseball All Star Game, when the previous Busch Stadium had just opened. It was 106 degrees on Broadway. The stadium had Astroturf then so you can imagine the temperature on the field.

Casey Stengel was there representing the Mets. Some reporter asked him, "Well, Casey, what do you thing of this beautiful new stadium here here in St. Louis?"

The Old Professor thought for a moment. "Well, it holds the heat well" was his eventual reply.

Bob,

I remember the 1966 All Star Game at what was the new Busche Stadium then. I was there!

And Casey was right.

This kind of cow is different than the one I'm used to seeing in Spain. A very cool photo!
