Charolais are known to carry a form of the pinzegaur spotting gene which can cause skunk tails.

I thought this was interesting so I bumped it up.
People can't believe we have such a big moon for such a small town.

I wonder that if some of these skunk tailed animals could be the result from breeds used in breeding up?  When we have researched the ancestry of some animals, we have found that they go back to a Holstein.  We know that the Holstein and the Lineback are very closely related.

Genetics are a very difficult thing to figure out, but could it be possible that the skunk tail marking could be coming from a distant Holstein/Lineback parent?

I bred a few Charolais females to a Shorthorn bull roughly 20 years ago and got some linebacks
