red Paint suggestions?
« on: March 09, 2007, 02:39:44 PM »
For dark red cattle, what is the best paint to use? I tried the Sullivan's Crimson but it was too dark.
OH Breeder said he uses shoe polish, any body have any luck w/ that?
I remember we took hair sample from my red cow into sherwin williams & got a close match there.

OK, this is a shorty trick.  See if you can find a horse supply store that sells Shapley's products.  They have all the horse colors.  We used chestnut on our shorty heifers, but there are several shades of red.  It was something we found to look more natural on the legs.  Let me know if you can find it.
