Black Dog Kylo Ren
Kylo was born on February 26 out of Clarabelle and Jack. I almost never sell bulls but this little man has too much going for him. His dam is chondro negative 39" at 10 years old, she stays fat on grass and breeds back quickly. She has the body type I love in minis, with short legs and a long, strong back having plenty of room to carry a calf. She is strongly maternal, her udder and teats are textbook perfect, and she has never needed her feet trimmed. Clarabelle has 4 generations of Pandas on both sides of her pedigree and has constantly had well-marked calves. His sire, Jack, is a chondro negative homegrown bull that stands 39" as a two-year-old. His dam is still calving at 17 years old and his sire has 5+ generations on both sides of his pedigree. I expect this guy to mature around 40"-41". He is hetero-polled and a non-carrier of PHA and Chondro. I bought three bulls last year and still wouldn't mind this guy hanging around.
Black Dog Leia
Leia was born on March 19, 2022 out of Emma and Jack. Her dam, Emma, is a dairy-influenced cow that is on the taller side but has the best personality on the farm. Leia is hetero-polled, non-chondro, and a carrier of PHA. I expect her to mature to mid-size. Click here to read about PHA. Please feel free to reach out with questions. She could be sold with Emma, who is bred to Finn.
Kate is a two-year-old, mid-sized Jersey. She was AI'ed and confirmed bred to TDH Little Pot of Honey (39" mini Jersey) due March 1, 2023. She is friendly, personable, and used to being touched all over. Kate is not halter broke but will follow a bucket anywhere (truly anywhere) and stands quietly in the chute. She is currently holding her weight well on just pasture. Two straws of mini Jersey semen can be included in the sale.
Mimosa is a three-year-old, mid-size, polled, dun American Belted. She is bred to Finn, a registered dun Belted Galloway, for a December calf. She had no trouble calving her first calf, a lovely red Panda heifer that will be staying here. Mimosa comes for cubes, is quiet around people, and is pleasant in the herd. Two straws of semen can be included with purchase.

This unusual little girl was born on March 8, 2022, to Tiger Lilly and Jack. She is my calico cow. I'm pretty sure the red mark will disappear as she grows up but its pretty neat to see. Rey is free of Chondro and PHA. She has been dehorned. I expect her to mature around 40"
Emma is a four-year-old, taller end of mid-size, dairy-influence, mix-breed cow. Her dam was a Dexter x Dutch Belted and her sire was a Hereford x Belted Galloway. She is bred to South Arrow Finn (registered BG) and is due Jan 30 or Feb 21, 2023. Emma is halter broke (like put a halter on her in the field and lead her to the barn broke) and stands tied.
