Cowboy is such a great attribute to our herd!
Originally we really wanted some new lines in the mini world that weren't heavily used already so we purchased Cowboy's dam Rose and his sire Domino.
Rose has lovely attachments and texture making her a dream to milk paired with our Nigerian buck who brought excellent milking lines and was a stout, sturdy buck which we felt would make excellent offspring!
Cowboy is one of the twins we got from this pairing, and just had to retain. Actually we retained both him and his sister so we could watch and record the results of this pairing. We are really proud of this 50/50 line and are very excited to see where it takes our herd!
He has not disappointed us! Cowboy has smooth blending from his long elegant neck into his withers and carries that length throughout his barrel. As he matures, his brisket is getting more defined although my horrible photography and set-up skills don't highlight that very well!
His rear angulation is an improvement over his dam (thanks to Domino), which carries down to nice strong pasterns making him a very nice animal overall.
As an added bonus, Cowboy is very sweet and loves attention but is not overbearing about it.
His first daughter to freshen was "Marvelous" and I encourage you to check her page (listed below), to see what attributes Cowboy is giving to his offspring.
