Apparently, I've always been drawn to cows. This picture was taken when I was about ten or so (dig the satin shorts?) at the Calgary Zoo (at least I'm sure that's a cow). I'd like to thank Kelsey for the question about cow having. I forgot to answer her question on how we found out about the breed. Funny thing is it's kind of blog love related. Catherine of Catherine et les fees fame blew me a way with a visit to our land and planted the Dexter cow seed in my brains. My other friend, Pegs, always told me to hold out for a 'mini-moo' so we can ship them in together from Saskatchewan so we can throw them into the hatchback of our cars and have them over for playdates but I googled, and googled and I still don't know what she's talking about.
But the Dexter fits the bill for smaller cow, hardy in cold temperatures and dual purpose. Not to mention sweet tempered. At least I think that's a Dexter thing. Daisy's seriously the sweetest!
