    The Farm
    We raise Dexter Cattle. They are a very old Irish breed and the smallest breed of cattle. They are naturally shorter because their purpose was as a dual purpose (milk and meat) family cow for small farms in Ireland. We are striving to keep our animals true to the old type Dexters.

    Our horses are Phoenix, a palomino AQHA gelding, Andy (Sea Spirit) a grey Arabian cross and Donkeyotee (Don Quixote) a large standard donkey.

    Love the coop and your livestock. Your cattle are especially interesting. We have a horse but I've been trying to talk my wife into a miniature donkey. No luck so far but I plan on getting my 8 year old son in on the act, lol. Great pics, thanks for sharing.
