Smokey / Mouse

Smokey cow

This colour, also known as mouse-coloured and smokey-faced, was common at one time in the Lleyn Peninsula and in those districts of Breconshire, Radnorshire and Montgomeryshire adjoining the English border.  The latter group was bred using Hereford and Shorthorn bulls, but the colour still occurs as a recessive in Welsh Black herds, though less commonly than red.
