Okay, it's a steer, but it looks like a pig!

    I'm good, but I sure can't see that your critter is a steer. But what it is is a banded (well, it could have been branded) brangus after the hump's been removed for a barbeque.
     
    Or. it's a belted galloway.

        Riding down to Memphis last year we saw several of these critters in some pastures in western Tennessee. It was interesting to see some Bison shaped 'Cows'  (Humps and Large Rugged Heads)in the herd. I was told that many of the places breeding "Beefalo's" have this Banded appearance in their genes.

          Belted Galloways, originally from Scotland, also come in red and dun (beige) colors:

              If you play Farmville, those cost 1,000,000 coins.
