New (?) video of Tauros crossbreeds

Once again from Kempen~Broek, where the Highland-Maremmana cows, a Sayaguesa bull and their offspring live. The video was posted two months ago, but I am not sure if it really is two months old. In any case, you get a good glimpse of the animals, especially the second-generation crosses. Most of the heifers are very dark, and many of them have light mucosa possibly due to dilutions inherited from Highland (they have to be phenotypically E+, since this allele is dominant over e). Unfortunately you don't see much of the the young cross bull on the video. The crossbreeds are too young to get an idea of their horns yet, but I think their shape probably will not be that impressing.
