BV 2U aka Bonna

Hehe!!!   I truly rested from my weekend long crop the last two days, thus no blog posts.  But also played with making some Valentines cards. Hint....come back tomorrow.

In early October of 2008 we purchased a heifer at the Get Back to Grass Sale who later received the barn name of Bonna.  In the early summer of 2009 we sold her to Raincross Ranch in Hearne, Texas.  As I was looking for photos to work with Nuts About Sketches # 252 I came across these photos of Bonna.  Bonna was one of my first subjects to begin to practice taking photos of cattle.  I was studying angles.  Of the 32 photos I took these were my favorite five.  The best one and most striking just wasn't a close up shot so cut it down for the layout.  It's obvious of her standing behind the grass and mesquite bush.  This is the one that has show heifer written all over her.  The pictures were perfect as I was also thinking about how Bonna will be representing our genetics at Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.

Last year we had Bonna return to our ranch for two months to be bred to FJL General Beauregard!  Bonna is entered in the Senior Cow/Calf class and consigned to the 2nd Annual International Lowline Sale at Houston.  She sells as a pair with her 2012 Heifer.  Bonna is a 3/4 Lowline Cow with nice size frame and has huge amount of efficiency in the pasture.  She is a BR Absolut 1L daughter out of a half blood Lowline/Gelbvieh cross cow.   Bonna's 2012 December calf is a purebred daughter of FJL General Beauregard (Ardrossan Neron x EZ Twyla 61T)  The General's calves have fast growth, correct structure, and a quiet nature.  The General has several division championships including the 1st International Champion Senior Bull.  He's highly efficient in the pasture correct structure and easy on the eyes.  So easy on the eyes you'll take a second glance at this "pretty" boy!  In fact he even thinks he's pretty and has had a theme song given to him, 'Sexy and I Know It'!  Remember if your at Houston make sure you take a good look at Lot 37, BV 2U.
