If a hornless bull mates with a horned cow what are the two genotypes of the two parents?

Hornless = polled. Polled cows and bulls can be either homozygous polled or heterozygous polled. So, since we have no idea of what kind of calf they produce, the genotypical cross will look like this: (H = polled and h= horned) H_ x hh "H_" symbolizes the unknown allele that the polled bull has. Is he hetero polled or homozygous polled? The "hh" of the cow symbolizes she is homozygous horned, since the horned trait in cattle is a recessive trait: polled gene is dominant.
