"Polled Hereford Cattle"

This artwork as a painting of "Polled Hereford Cattle" by the rodeo King of the Ropers and western artist William MacLeod, as this was originally an artwork illustration painting that was originally illustrated by the artist Jake Tebbit from a book called "Cattle: A Handbook to the Breeds of the World" by author Val Porter (a book that was published around and between 1992 and 2007).

I photocopied this illustration from the book and originally in the illustration, the Herefords had horns, so I decided to erase the horns and I decided to do a great portrait of the red and white Hereford cattle without the horns, because from looking at this painting, this is a great breed of beef cattle and this breed is totally my favorite.

Also, Instead of the horns, I really like the polled Herefords better because they don't have horns and are easier without the horns because I don't want to get gored by them, I like the polled ones because they are much safer and easier to rope for just breakaway practices in the rodeos.

I like the polled version as if if nobody likes getting gored.

This one probably took me four or five days to paint and it was painted between December 2017 and January 2018 and this one has a lot of great distinctive style in this image.

Roper William MacLeod feels that he has painted another great portrait of the Hereford cattle and also, showed the polled version is the way to go as if nobody likes to be gored by horns, so I decided to show the polled Herefords are my favorite breed.
