Robert and Donna Wicks have no clue why their five-year-old bullock is quite as eye-catching as he is.
There's no two ways about it - the Friesian bullock is big. He stands a touch under six foot, the Wicks' said. That's a touch under 182cms.
Many people haven't just done a double-take and continued on, Robert explained. Many stop him on the NSW Mid North Coast farm he's called home for 30 years to learn more about the gentle giant.
"A lot of people always ask what we fed him for him to grow so big, but he wasn't on any special diet," he said.
"We had him from a week old and he was reared on a cow, maybe that's what made him grow so big, but I'm not sure.
"We think it might just be genetics and his breed."
Although the five-year-old bullock's height isn't in freak territory for the Holstein-Friesian breed, he is at the taller end for the existing known range for males which is around 170-180cm.
"It's also quite extraordinary to see a bullock of his age, they are usually sold earlier than five years. So he has had the time to grow," Robert said.
"We've had other bullocks over the years and there were a few that grew quite big, but not as big as this one."
Although the Friesian's size is within the biological parameters of his breed, Robert and Donna have found his height a challenge to overcome when doing cattle work.
"Robert has to stand on a bucket to needle him because it's so hard to reach his back," Donna said.
And as big and beautiful as he may be, the Wicks' beast doesn't quite measure up to Reggie, the Friesian bullock, Queensland Country Life unearthed back in 2017.
He was eight then and towered over his owner, the 182cm Col Budden. He also made Col's trusty farm ute look rather tiny.
