Woodmagic Petrel Ex91 22 years old today

Post by Saffy » Thu May 21, 2020 11:18 am

She was the first ever Dexter cow in the UK to be classified excellent. Still in good condition at 22 years old but the years of being boss cow have taken their toll and she is a little lame. I will post pics. I have only owned her 10 years but I have pics starting from when she was a 3rd calver, thanks to a friend. Scroll through if you are interested.

Her conformation is fantastic, sadly not thanks to me but an earlier very erudite breeder that some will remember Beryl Rutherford. Like many Woodmagic cows I have been lucky enough to own, her legs and feet are THAT good that they stay juts so and have never needed a trim.

First pic was taken this morning

What a splendid cow. Though my heart sinks a little when I look at my boss cow and think we may have another 7 years together!
