Hi, The lady who I got my new milk cow from =), also has a yearling jersey/guernsey cross heiffer. She is quite small... and she expectes her to be a smaller cow even when she is grown. I would have to say that she takes after the guernsey more than anything. Well, I am paying cash for the Brown Swiss when we pick her up, but she mentioned doing a trade and having her 2 yr old quarter horse broke. She wants $500 cash for the heiffer or will trade. I have though about this all week. I was thinking that I could put 30 rides on the colt, not 30 days as you can't get 30 rides in. I would feed the colt and keep him at my place, I would venture about 45 days. I will start him using Natural Horseman-ship methods. I have a great deal of experience with horses, my latest being an assistant to a cutting horse trainer. The way I look at it is this - I wouldn't pay cash for the heiffer as I don't NEED her and paid for the first one. If I trade for her, I am gaining something by doing something that I enjoy, and will have a nice heiffer when I am done. Do you all think that this would be worth it? I can breed her later and keep her around if I like her, or sell her as a family milk cow for $1000.... ???
