Dixie at 17 years old, look at those Feet and Udder !!!

Dixie: (24425) Dixie is a foundation dam because of her superior conformation traits, but even more so because she quickly and easily rebred every year, at 19 years old had feet like a 3 year old and never had to have her hoofs trimmed or touched, Had a tight udder with small teats that her calves would latch onto minutes after birth unassisted, Calved easily never needing assistance, and Had small calves that grew well on her milk supply. Dixie consistently passed heavy bone and muscle, thick hair, beautiful short heads with wide muzzles and correct bushy forelocks, Low wide horn set, and Level Straight Top Lines showing correct skeletal structure, to her calves. Dixie earned her place at the top of our cows and it was sad to see her pass at 20 years old, after having her last calf at 19 years old.



"Mandy": ( 48562)  Is a Haydn and Dixie Calf.  We sold Mandy as a Calf to Young Sprout Farm in Texas and spent the next 4 years figuring out how to get her back.  We are thrilled to have her back and she gave us a BEAUTIFUL black Heifer calf for 2015!!!




Britta:  (46856)  Dixie's Daughter Britta is taking up the place her mother left.  I could repeat her all the traits her mother has and we hope she calves until she is 19+ like her mother.  Britta is the Dam of Magic and Ruby and Arwen.  Britta stays fat on nothing but grass and hay.




Ruby:  (48564) Britta's and Haydn's Daughter.  All the wonderful traits passed down from Dixie and Britta, AND a super wide deep body and beautiful thick long hair passed down from Haydn. All 1400 pounds of her stays looking this good on nothing but grass and hay.



Myrtle:   (34432) Myrtle is our other foundation Dam.  She turned 17 years old last year and throws the most beautiful calves with correct conformation.  Myrtle easily has small calves every year and her calves very quickly latch onto her small teats and tight udder.  At 17+ years old Myrtle still breeds easily and has the udder and feet of a 3 year old heifer! Never has Myrtle had help calving, nursing or attention to her feet.  Myrtle's calves speak for themselves: Rose, Duncan, Hansel, and Coinneach.  Coinneach, this years calf, placed in Peoples Choice for the on line International Highland Cattle Show.




Rose:  (48563) Rose has all the good of Myrtle and Haydn combined.  Rose is moderate size like her dam, Myrtle, and has heavy bone, super spring of rib and depth of body, an incredible short wide head with perfect forelock and low wide horns, and a Straight Level Top Line showing her correct skeletal structure.  Rose is producing BEAUTIFUL calves !





Little Houston:  (46857)  Little Houston Is a heavy framed, moderate height, wide and deep cow with a strong Level Top Line.  She is producing wonderful calves, like Ace, and is our herd leader. One of our favorites since birth, Little Houston is a real asset and moves the herd up and down the mountain to different pastures when needed.


"Ace" and her first calf, Branna

Ace:   (49720)  Ace has Little Houston's good traits and a shorter, wider head and heavier Forelock inherited from her sire, "Haydn".  We were excited to get a black calf out of Haydn. Ace started Producing Beautiful calves in 2014.




Gretel:  (51521)  is a Simone George calf. Gretel has a wonderful deep body and square frame, great feet and udder. She calved her first in 2015 easily and the calf ate unassisted within an hour and was running around all day.  We have big hope for Gretel.







Muirneag:  (52636)  Muirneag is a new addition for us from Vintage Hill Farms.   Vintage Hill Farms is known for preserving traditional breed character, structural correctness, And Pure Scottish Genetics.  We are excited to obtain a cow that goes back to Scott of Craycombe, Bart of Benmore, Gille Buidhe of Benmore and Trina of Kiyiwana.  Muirneag had her first calf this fall and is passing down her Scottish correctness and beautiful top line.




Simone:  (39480)  Simone was one of the original cows we bought.  She was beautiful looking and had a calf easily every year and her calves grew up fast and strong.  She made some of our finest. Seen here with Ranger. Simone was purchased by Twisted Timbers Ranch in 2014.
