Our tiny herd keeps growing.
We are now blessed with a
Normande/Watusi cross cow, Simmental cow, Dexter cow and a Dexter/Lowline Heifer.
We sold our first cow, Miss Molly,
so we could get a breed (Normande) that
Handsome Husband has been interested in for some time.
Our Dexters are growing well. We are slowly transitioning towards the smaller stature of the Dexter. We have been very happy with our girls. The best meat I have ever tasted came from a Dexter steer who was about 22 months of age and grass fed.
Two years ago, we purchased a bottle bull. We named him Otis and quickly fell in love with his orneriness. He wasn't quite big enough yet to breed all the girls, so we borrowed a SImmental bull named, Ox. He is the most gentle giant that I have ever seen. The only time he gets excited at all is if you stop petting him. We were blessed with heifers this past year. We look forward to seeing what drops this spring.
