I regret to inform everyone that Princess Hillary has passed away. She died Friday 1-11-12 at 18 years and 2 months old at my place in East Texas. I’m sure most of you are familiar with this great cow as she has calves from Texas to Canada and in between. From what I’ve learned in my short time dealing with Watusi, I think it’s safe to say she positively impacted the breed with great magnitude. Her last calf born was a heifer calf and is currently happily eating hay in my pasture. It was a sad day at the ranch and she will be missed. Her loud unique bellow will only be heard on YouTube from now on. I hope all is well and that you’re all having a great new year.
Liar’s Lake Kenya Jim was born at Texas Safari in 1988. He has been used extensively as a sire by Liar’s Lake having produced over one hundred calves. Jimmy was sired by Heinz, of the Catskill Game Farm breeding lines, and out of Kathy, one of the highest selling Watusi cows of the last decade. Kathy was from the Rare Animal Survival Center, Ocala, Florida.
