New photos from the Watussi x Maremmana crosses

Today, a couple of new photos of the two Watussi x Maremmana crosses have been published on Facebook:

It is clearly visible that the young cow is of a lighter colour than his half-brother. I am very much looking forward to see what they are going to look like fully grown. Watussi obviously contributes alleles enabling the production of red pigment, so breeding out the Agouti dilutions in the second generation might already result in a very aurochs-like colour scheme.
