We have rounded out our heard with two more cow calf pairs. The two beautiful mama are wonderfully shaped and protective mothers. one of the calves is a cute little beefy heifer while the other is a beautiful bull calf. We're done collecting for the season but are thrilled to be working with such awesome animals!
We found another mama to join our heard and she brought her beautiful 2 week old calf with her! The calf is a mix between an Irish Dexter and a Belted Galloway which is the exact mix we are looking to breed! She is a perfect example of what a great combination it makes!
Well Ophelia got friends! They are also Irish Dexters. Beatrice is another yearling (the one with the horns) her Mother (standing next to her her) is 5 and doesn't have a name yet but Clara often calls her "Big Mama Cow". Big Mama has a unihorn as a result of a botched dehorning when she little but it doesn't change a thing about her usefulness and she's the perfect heard mama for beatrice and ophelia who is more then a little excited to have company!

We have a new addition to the farm! This is Ophelia! She is a one year old Irish Dexter. Irish Dexters are a small breed cow great at foraging and can be used for both meat and milk! She is destined to be bred and milked so feel free to get attached. She is a beautiful animal and we are hoping to get her some friends soon!
Mother of 2 beautiful girls! Our growing family is the largest drive we have to build a life filled with good food and a connection to the land.
