The Bazadaise Breed Standard

General Characteristics of the Bazadaise Breed

Coat Colour
Bulls are grey-coloured, going from a very light grey to a dark, carbon-like grey particularly at head level and at the neck and withers. The coat is often mottled with darker marks. The belly always has a lighter shade than the rest.

Females are lighter grey than males, sometimes with a slight wheat-like shade.

At birth, calves have a wheat-like hair coat and only adopt the characteristic colour of the breed around the age of 3-4 months, sometimes even later.

The Head
The head is wide, carried high, sweet and expressive with great eyes surrounded with a slightly pink-coloured aureola, with very light grey hair.

Horns are strong and egg-shaped at the base, wax-yellow and then brown at the tip. They dip to form a crescent or else the tip goes up again.

Muffle and muzzle are pink, a remarkable thing in this grey-coated breed.
