Horned or scured or ?
« on: January 24, 2014, 07:53:19 PM »
This cow has these horns growing but they are not attached to skull they grow from skin and are loose looks funny when she shakes her head they flop around. What would she be called horned,scures or what.she is a Simmental shorthorn cross most of her calves have been polled.

If she were my cow they would be gone.

No they are loose you can pick them up, just attatched to skin at head don't know why or how they turn to horn as just hanging by skin she is getting old 11yrs or so still raises a good calf. Like her a unique cow any one else have similar?

Is there some bos indicus in the cow? I was thinking their horns were different from bos taurus somehow but I can't remember details.
People can't believe we have such a big moon for such a small town.

 No bos indicus  in the herd at all the scurs don't hurt her at all no rub marks or any thing I asked the vet one time when preg testing and she said why bother probably do more harm than good just a cosmetic thing but she would bleed as if cutting full horns I was just wondering if there was a term for this abnormality or if any one had some like her.
