****SO SORRY!! I have messed this page up bigtime and the thumbnails have gone all squirrelly. All the articles should be here; please email me if something's not here. I will fix everything soon, I hope!
When I was growing up in Central Texas, my dad had a hobby herd of registered Polled Hereford cattle from the Rollo Domino and Domestic Anxiety bloodlines. By the time I was 6, I learned two things: that it was fun to ride on our bull's back as he ambled to the barn, and that my dad would yell "Act like a fence!" when cows got loose. I realize now how essential those two bits of knowledge are! But of course there's a lot more to raising cattle. My dad is gone, so I had to learn on my own, researching the web and finding obscure books about Bos Indicus cattle. Yes, zebu are cattle, but they're different from Bos Taurus: they're independent, sensitive, observant, very intelligent, and form strong bonds to their humans. So I began writing articles especially for zebu people. Here are some of the articles, and also some newspaper and magazine articles about me and my zebu.
