    Your Herefords are so beautiful. That breed was fairly common here when I was growing up but now it seems its all Black Angus. I can’t remember the last time I saw a Hereford. Wishing Abigail and her little one the best…

    • Thank you, Bill. I love the Hereford breed – but this udder problem seems to be more common in Herefords. 😦 It is breaking my heart, since the vet confirmed it is a genetic trait.

    He looks so big until you put him next to mama. Hope Abigail will be OK.
