"Dorothy, the Polled Hereford Cow"

This artwork as a painting of "Dorothy, the Polled Hereford Cow", by the rodeo King of the Ropers and western artist William MacLeod.

First, I looked at the artwork illustration of the Hereford cow with horns that was originally done by the artist Celia Lewis probably in 2014.

I erased the horns and decided that polled would be more the way to go as if to not be gored.

This painting of a polled Hereford cow took me two days to paint in May of 2022 and polled Hereford cattle are primarily a meat cattle breed and are mainly used for meat production.

Roper William MacLeod feels that he has painted a great image of a polled Hereford cow to show that it is probably the best oldest breed of beef cattle ever.
