The Herefords were not alone on this ship as several other breeds of cattle were imported by Lewis Sanders who also lived in Lexington, Kentucky. Clay being in England in 1816, having always had a fondness for other fine stock, concluded to send home some fine cattle. and myself at that period resided in the same city and had always been personal and political friends from the time of his coming to Kentucky in 1789, till March 1825, and our social and personal relations have been unchanged for fifty years, yet, neither Mr. or myself had the slightest knowledge or intimation of the intention or views of the other in regard to importing foreign cattle.” When Clay’s Herefords reached Kentucky they were placed in the care of Isaac Cunningham who was a prominent Shorthorn breeder.
While it is not totally understood what all of these breeds actually were Sanders outlines them as the following: “a bull and heifer of the Holderness breed; two bulls and two heifers of the Teeswater breed (from the county of Durham); a bull and heifer of the Durham breed (Shorthorn); and two heifers of the Longhorn breed.” In a letter written by Sanders, published in March 1849 in the , he details the importation of his cattle as well as Clay’s. At this time the Herefords were great favorites at Smithfield. Clay’s own taste, or from the recommendation of others, he selected that stock, purchased a cow, a young bull and heifer of that breed (Hereford) and sent them to Liverpool to be shipped to the United States. For a short time the breeds were kept separate but after continuous inbreeding of the Herefords resulting in adverse affects, the Herefords were eventually crossed with the Shorthorns thus resulting in a loss of the Hereford identity of Clay’s herd.
We have become so close as friends we have adopted each other as forgotten sisters!
I never thought such a friendship could ever be found. Many thanks - Gloria We met through your site with a 98% compatibility.
The townspeople were not amenable to selling their land to the railroad company; consequently, the railroad site was moved three miles west, and in 1883 a depot called Bandana was established at its junction with the Corpus Christi, San Diego and Rio Grande Railway.
There were 6,400 households of which 39.0% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 54.5% were married couples living together, 17.6% had a female householder with no husband present, and 23.2% were non-families.
With your site I always felt very safe replying to letters. We are 'totally' compatible in everything we do, say, feel, like and enjoy. However, a million thanks since through you I have found my soul mate and life partner - Nigel.
I want to tell you that I have met a terrific guy, he's sweet, generous and very loving, and of course I met him through your agency, it's a miracle.
Here they first attracted attention as a distinct breed, possessing distinctive characteristics of color, conformation, constitution, fleshing tendencies, habits and temperament.
The cattle of Hereford, England were attracting a great deal of attention in America and the cattle of Benjamin Tomkins, from whom many of the first Herefords were purchased, were considered great beef improvers at the time.
The other is the 9-hole Alice Country Club golf course east of town.
