Polly (Galipoli Mist) settled as the days went on, she narrowly beat Gazelle in their class and didn't disgrace herself in the Junior Heifer Championship class. I am again so pleased with her and feel she will have a long future here. Gazelle and Guess were so good for Sarah - I am so proud of my 11 year old daughter! She has matured so much this last year. It is such a pleasure knowing that I can trust my cattle with my children - one of the reasons I breed Dexters!
Cat's Whiskers finally calved on 11th October while I was at the Royal. A heifer I have named Hattrick - Envoy's 3rd heifer in a row for me! I now have had to do the thing I hate most - work out who I am selling and who is staying. I love ALL my Dexters which makes this time of the year so hard. At the same time I know I must do this if I am going to continue to improve. I have looked at my "girls", looking at what qualities I want to enhance and then decide if a particular cow is going to "fit the bill". I know my cows aren't perfect but at the same time I feel I AM moving in the right direction. I have sufficient stock to now to make these harsh decisions, so I have some lovely animals reluctantly for sale. Please check out my for sale page!
