One thing you will notice on almost all the Augusta Prides is that they have really good front ends.  Look at the above pics and the one in my profile and see if you see some similairties. Those Greenhorn heifers are great ; I've seen them in person.

Cowz, Sullivan's have a lot of Augusta Pride females in their cow line-up. Go to for some excellant examples:

I really like another family of Shorthorn females, the Orange and Astra cow families. They are great mothers and very maternal. Have you dealt with them much SDawg?

No , I haven't had any experience with those cow lines. In my herd I have Playful Cait , Augusta Pride , Dream Girl, Shadra, Anndelle, Mary , Charming Constance, among others.

Orange Girls go back to Irish blood if I am right.  The Astra cows go back to Cates and beyond to Coronet lines.

I am familiar with these females you have pictured but haven't researched their pedigree. They are great females.

Is Jake's Proud Jazz as small as he looks in pictures? And would he work well on a Waukaru Minnie cow that has a frame score of about 7.5? She is the mother of our herd sire and has had nice calves, but I wanted to maybe make the calves a little clubbier and still be purebred.

One of his owners told me that he would downsize a score or two, add muscle , and add style. Based on that I would say he would work well on the Wakaru Minnie cow.
