Klauss Chief Skull has been the premier herdsire for StarB Texotics for several years. He pretty much speaks for himself. He represents some of the most famous background animals in the bred. He already has 34 offspring to his record and will show his mark on the breed.
We previously reported that in our September, 2015 meeting the Board of Directors of the World Watusi Association approved a new hardship registration program for female percentage animals. This has been a very successful program and many previously lost animals have been added to our breeding pool.
For a period of one year from September 23, 2015 through September 22, 2016 in an attempt to recognize animals that have been lost to the registry the World Watusi Association is offering a special category for the Hardship of mature female percentage animals. During this period a non-refundable $100.00 hardship fee, three (3) photos one each from the left side, right side and the front shall be submitted to the Registrar together with an application as complete as possible including the best estimate of the age of the animal and any known information. The animal will be accepted or rejected for registration based upon the ruling of the entire Board of Directors. The Board shall rule in the following categories: 1) Native Pure 2) ¾ Blood 3) ½ Blood or 4) Not a Watusi. Registration fee shall be $25.00 on animals accepted by the board.
After acceptance and registration of females, calves of the hardship female under the age of 12 months will be eligible for registration under the regular rules in Section 4 and 5.1 of Rules. Prior calves over 12 months of age shall be subject to the hardship rules herein.
Complete the existing Registration Application as much as possible.
Provide three (3) photos of the animal for whom the application is submitted. These photos may be submitted by email or by mail. The poses are to be one from each side and the front of the animal.
Please provide as much information as possible. On a separate paper please state where and when was the animal obtained? Name and address of seller, name and address of breeder if available, Any information provided when animal was purchased. Any photos and/or information on the sire and dam.
Not having any information on the background of the animal submitted for hardship registration does not disqualify it from consideration, but will aid the Board in making a decision.

Sheri Gurr and her husband Randy are relatively new in the world of watusi, but have jumped in with both feet. They have added many new faces to their farm Randy Gurr Watusi in Utah. http://www.rockingGwatusi.com
Then there is Mojo, Sheri’s steer. Steers make wonderful ambassadors, pasture ornaments, conversation pieces and best friends.
We all know that most animals produce around an equal number of males and females over time. Because in breeding situations the number of males needed is exponentially less than females one solution is to steer some of those extra males.
Will Ross of Ross Ranch Horns in Brownsboro, Texas rossranchhorns.com submitted to us this information on his young steer, BWS Old Red. This is a four year old steer with phenomenal growth and bloodlines. Talk about a pasture ornament.
We lost one of our WWA members Friday to cancer. Barbara Britton whose husband was Wayne until his passing a few years ago, lost her battle. She fought long and hard and kept her Watusi until the end. Others helped her feed and such, but she always said she wouldn’t part with them until she died. It was important to her, not only because she enjoyed them so much, but also because they had meant so much to her dear husband, Wayne. She promised him she would keep them in his honor and she kept her promises. Barb was a very dedicated and extremely hard working lady who even kept showing her Watusi at the shows when she had to do it all herself and then after Wayne passed. The last few years she had to stop traveling as her cancer was making it an impossibility for her, even with help from others and her family. She promoted the breed all through the years with dignity and conviction and we will miss her. A fond farewell.
Just to let The Watusi World know: If you send in registration on a new animal YOU WILL NEED THREE PICTURES instead of one.
ONE PICTURE FROM THE RIGHT SIDE
ONE PICTURE FROM THE LEFT SIDE
ONE PICTURE FROM THE FRONT
Thanks in advance
These photos can be submitted by email to the registrar or by mail.
