Tabitha is extremely friendly, kind, halter broke, and easy to handle. She is gentle and will come to you when called. She is suitable for a first-time cow owner.
In 2018 she was bred for the first time via AI to Sure Shot Southern Comfort. Tabitha calved a healthy heifer, On a Whim Bambi, on 05/30/2019, completely unassisted and without issue. She is a wonderful mom.
The first time Tabitha was milked was by hand and she never offered to kick - she was so well-behaved! The subsequent times I have milked her were by machine and she was equally as well-mannered. She is just a gem!
She gets along well with others and respects my fences. She gets along well with dogs, horses, other cows, and goats.
