    aha! I can talk cow with you .... you can pass the word to DH that yes, she was an Excellent cow and a show winner too ... at 5yo, won her class as well as Best Bred and Owned. Go for it and do one of your Guernseys .......... and if you work in 3/4" pieces, this would be a piece of cake!

    I'm hoping that this version will go to the Fair or two this year, and will also be a Class Winner!!!!
    I have a feeling it will be. Unlike the real thing she won't change from day to day! LOL We don't do a lot of showing. GK's are just starting 4-H so will be hitting the Tanbark Trail (or portions of it) over the next few years as we did when ours were in 4-H.
    On the 21st we appraise cows through the AGA. Hoping to raise a 90 pt cow to 92 or more. Who knows? She's at her bloom stage right now too. Nice to have someone here who understands "cow" regardless of breed!
    WOW ... you get lots of advance notice. Here we only get a call the night before, rarely two nights before. Good Luck on the re-scoring! At times we sold cattle that went to your State!!

    Are you all Guernseys? We were 1/2 Holstein and 1/2 Jerseys!!

    And meanwhile the non-cow/farm people are thinking .... what the heck is going on here? :)
    PM'd you!

    Not State Fair ... as I'm in Canada! :)

    I do hope to take her to some of our local Fairs, which don't start till the Fall. The trick will be to find a class for her, being that she is pieced and then stretched and framed. No "quilting" per se.

    And having exported many Holsteins and Jerseys to the States as well as around the world, who knows, maybe some of you had some of my cattle! :)

    Do you have guernseys too? Go for it!!!!

    I'd love to see you and OKSewGlad take up the challenge ... and I bet we could persuade MamaBear to do it too ..... though she might have to make more than one breed!!! :)
    I would have to try it with a Jersey first, less room for error in colour placement. Back in the day when we had to draw markings for registration papers, I wasn't very good, that job usually fell to my mother and brother, as my artistic talent was limited at best. Maybe I would be better using fabric than I was with a pencil and paper :oops:
    Years ago I used to draw the heifers' markings. Then we had a heifer with very few spots and had to tatoo her. Been doing it that way ever since.
    Oh my gosh - I completely forgot about the drawings when sending in registration papers! I moved away from the farm when I was 18 (just a few years ago ;-) ) and other than visiting, haven't been involved with cattle since.

    ha! we simplified it ... and took photos! :)
    The Jerseys were a real treat as no drawings/photos.

    I am a beef woman, myself, but your picture is cause for celebration - - you got it so good!
    What animal person in the world wouldn't appreciate a superb example of milking ability?
    Interesting how you figured out how to even get that flip of white on her shoulder ... good show!
    I love your subject matter! (I am expecting big ribbons from your county/state fair!)

    From one cow person to another, Thanks for the kind words! I'll issue you a challenge, Omak, to re-create one of your own bovines too. I'd so like to do one of our Jerseys, though I haven't quite figured out how to do all the shades of brown or the white frosting they have around their mouths.

    I am hoping I can find some Fairs that have classes for her! It will be a little awkward, as being framed, it's not truly a quilt! Our Fairs don't start til September, so it'll be awhile til I can put her on the circuit! :)

    I would take you up on your challenge, but frankly - - an all red beef cow just isn't achievable in my humble opinion. Hereford, Longhorn, even a Simmental might be worth the effort, but all red??? I don't think so. for some reason, personality just doesn't translate bovine in fabric. lol

    ha! I hear ya! :)
    Kind of like my dilemma with the Jersey.
    Though you could do the silhouette .... still have the challenge of getting the shaping and to do the legs. The udder and the teats were a challenge for me.

    Of course, you could always do a Holstein, Guernsey or broken-coloured Jersey just for the experience!! :)

    OK ... keep it beef and do a B+W Galloway! :)

    Well, I suppose I could do what you suggest, but then I would have to take time from the fifty two projects (or more) that I have been trying to complete for more than five years, now - - I am best at procrastination
