" A sad thing it is to not have friends, but even sadder must it be not having any enemies; that a man should have no enemies is a sign that he has no talent to outshine others, nor character that inspires, nor valor that is feared, nor honor to be rumored, nor goods to be coveted, nor anything to be envied.
Jose Marti, quoting Father Calenchafro the first part of the 17th century

For a number of years this space has been devoted to encouraging Dexter breeders to join the Legacy effort to DNA type not only the oldest living Dexters but ALL Dexters and maintain those samples in a single location - established in 2004 at the University of California-Veterinary Genetics laboratory. So many have joined that effort voluntarily. This is a good thing for Dexters into the future. My herd was the first herd added to the Dexter database and through that effort and the Legacy program DNA testing became a standard in the Dexter breed.
Do you . . . . . GOT PURPLE? My herd is all purple now. Lots of purple Dexters. Purple is good for Dexters and good for their breeders. When your new customer asks, " Where's the PURPLE?", make sure your Dexter has color! Visit the Legacy genotype registry and see all the PURPLE ! ! LegacyDexterCattleRegistry.com

Deep in a secluded hollow tucked away in the Monocacy River valley of southern Frederick County Maryland, small critters roam the meadows, graze the pastures, wade the streams, and frolic in the yard,happymakers all. An oasis of solitude and serenity perched on the fringes of an immense metropolitan area only a short drive away from Harper's Ferry to the west. . . . Gettysburg to the north . . . Baltimore to the east. . . . and to the south, . . . Washington, DC.
This . . IS . . . the good life. My American dream would have every child grow up on a farm.
