More Farm Animal Pics!

This saturday I went to Agropolis, the national agricultural fair.... and I took pics of the animals there, of course! Remember the miniature cebu picture I posted not too long ago that some people asked me if I had a pic with a person beside it? Well, I have one of those now!!! Just so you people can see how tiny they are! 8) Well... here are the pics...

Here are some pheasants...


Other types of pheasants...


A pair of peacocks:


A pretty sheep (looks like a calico sheep! LOL)


Some cute pygmy goats:

Cute little piglets!!!


Here is the mini-cebu. The guy was around 6 feet tall and he told us that the bulls in that cage where around 4 years (there was another cage with younger bulls)

Fun pics! I've never heard of a cebu until now. They're just miniature cattle?

It's a type of bovine cattle. Cows come from 2 species: Bos taurus, most milk cattle are this one, they don't have a hump and have erect ears.... breed like holstein (the classic black and white milk cows), jersey, and brown swiss are Bos Taurus. The Other species is Bos Indicus. These ones are the ones called cebu or cebuine breeds. They have a hump and "floppy" ears and most are meat types. An example of a cebuine breed is brahman. I'm not sure if there's an specific breed called cebu, but I think that they just call them collectively that. The ones I saw are basically miniature cattle, as you said, just of this species of cow. I did a search on the net for a couple of pics, so you see the difference. 8)

This one is a Bos indicus (Brahman):


This one is a Bos taurus (holstein):

Last summer I did my practice at a dairy goat farm... I had to milk the goats very day. I really loved it, and loved feeding the baby goats... but I hated cleaning the stalls... lol... but it's all part of the job. I like farm animals too, the least I like are cows, I really don't want to work with them, but if I have to, then I'll do it. I would really like to have a couple of goats (pets) in the future. Maybe pygmys or alpines, those are my favorites. 8)
