Herd - 2

|". . . Dewy pastures sunset-dazed, At leisure paced by mild-eyed
milk-white kine, Smiled them a welcome. . ."

Halliburton Adios (AKA Lisa), April of 2006, at about 5 years old, fully matured,
and she's never had a bull calf that wasn't hands down the best of
Quite an amazing little Popeye sired cow that is still
going strong in my 2015 herd today.
This is Lisa's Tom Sawyer sired yearling heifer - a beautiful
girl, pictured here in 2011. She is J.West's Clementine and is in
OK pastures now.
Below is El Presidente in Oct. 2009, and Elvis in
Oct. 2009. Semen is available on both.
this link for YouTube videos of both.
Halliburton Alouise (AKA Taylor), a double Popeye daughter, in August of
'06. Taylor's genetics run well through my herd in both sires
and dams. Her Fall
'05 Bounder sired heifer, J.West's Jilly, is pictured below.
J.West's Jilly has proven an outstanding dam in my herd. She
never misses a calf, and she always produces excellent calves.
Below is J.West's Joey (semen available) at two years old. Joey
was sired by J.West's S.S. Carter - so he's a double Taylor
The late Halliburton Boopsie (AKA Wanda Mae) in the Summer of
2006, about 5 months bred and a hefty bull calf recently weaned. The most placid cow in my
original herd - a Popeye daughter -- I've several fine females that
come down from her line.
Fall '06 heifer calf from Wanda Mae and J.West's Elvis,
pictured in March of 07above, and named JWest's Vincenzia.....Vinnie suffered a severe leg injury in August of 2007 and it was a
solid year before she was healed. She's pictured below
in 2011 with a beautiful El Presidente sired heifer calf at foot.
Were it not for her excellent disposition, we likely would not have
seen her fully healed, she let you treat her in an open pen for a
very long time . . . and that says quite a lot about the docility of
J.West's Jilly in March 2015 with her new El Presidente sired heifer
calf at foot.
|Below are some pretty heifer calves sired
by J.West's S.S. Carter, pictured in the summer of 2012.
J.West's S.S. Carter (semen available) was Taylor's last calf.
Carter was sired by J.West's Mazarati and has proven a great beefy
herd bull that sires thick easy-keeping calves that mature to
a frame 2 to 3 in size. Pictured below at 2 years.
Born Oct. 07 2007, this is Carter as a 4 month calf.
|J.West's Blossum, Spring 07, a really
pretty El Presidente sired heifer calf out of a Woodbastwick
Randolph Turpin sired dam out of HRH Bountiful.
Below is J.West's Blossum in the Summer of 2010.
Below is J.West's Blossum raising her own Carter sired bull calf in
November 2011, along with having adopted an orphaned heifer calf. Blossum
did a remarkable
job raising both calves. Particularly when you consider the
drought of 2011.
HRH Bountiful in the Summer of 2006 about 7 months bred. She's a
strikingly beautiful cow with excellent milk, maternal instinct,
carcass, fertility and an outstanding disposition and continues to
thrive in East Texas pastures today at about 16 yrs old.
This is J.West's Brigit, a fine Bountiful granddaughter sired by J.West's
King Cole who has proven herself an excellent dam in my herd.
Above is J.West's Stallone in Jan 2014. Stallone was sired by
Tom Sawyer, a Bountiful Grandson, out of J.West's Vivian, a
Bountiful granddaughter . . .
This is in 2011, J.West's Blossum, an El Presidente daughter, on
the left, standing beside her own dam, J.West's Bountiful Brigit,
who is a daughter of Bountiful with outstanding fertility and gentleness and an
abundance of milk that is unmatched. Bountiful Brigit was
sired by Woodbastwick Randolph Turpin.
A particularly beautiful photo from the summer of 2011. See the
faint rainbow in the sky? The bull calf on the right is El
Presidente sired out of Bountiful Brigit, J.West's Merritt, who grew
in to a fine herd sire.
