I found some Holsteins!

And they sent a welcoming committee:

There were plenty of painting-worthy subjects in the herd.  The patterns on his heifer were particularly eye-catching:

I want to give a big shout-out to Chuck and Paula at Rocky Pointe Creamery and Farm for letting me roam around one of their pastures with the younger members of their herd.
