"I guess you could call me a 'city' girl who married a farmer. His family
has had the same herd of Polled Herefords for almost 4 generations. As you
can see, Daisy is not polled. I'm not sure exactly what caused this, but
Daisy isn't exactly "normal" anyway. She is from a first-calf heifer, and was
born premature - she was around 25 lbs when she was born. Her momma abandoned
her, and then some wild animal (not sure what) attacked her, but thankfully
the 2 farm dogs (Muffy and Sam) chased it away. She had really bad wounds on
her neck and back. My father-in-law said if I could nurse her back to
health, she would be mine. So, Daisy took a 12 mile trip in the back seat of my
car to my house. She lived in the backyard until she was mooing so loud the
neighbors were complaining. Then she went out with my horses, who kept
her company. She is now 1 1/2 years old and is probably 1/2 the size of a normal
heifer. I doubt I will ever breed her due to her size - she will always
be my 500 lb pasture puppy!"
