Meet our Magnificent Minis

Our miniature Highland Dexter hybrids are born and raised on our farm with loving care and lots of socialization. If you’re interested in any of our heifers, cows or bulls, or would like to see bloodline info, please contact us.

Oscar

  • Born: 2/23/2015
  • Gender: Bull
  • Height: 17.5″ (at birth)
  • Breed: Miniature Highland Dexter (Mini High-Dex)
  • Available Now: $1000

Our newest Miniature Highland Dexter is a baby bull who got his name (Oscar) because we found him the morning after the Oscar Awards were aired. His mother Easter always has oversized teets, so we bottle fed Oscar until he was big enough to nurse Mama. Because of this extra attention from his humans, he bonded with us and has developed a very loving personality. Oscar will come up to you wherever you are, and tag along like puppy. As a miniature, he has stayed very small, doing justice to his Dexter lineage while sporting the desirable characteristics of the Highland breed as well. He’s shown here at 2 months old.

Red Bull

  • Born: 2/7/2015
  • Gender: Bull
  • Height: 21” (at birth)
  • Breed: Dexter
  • Available Now: $1000

Jan’s Toyland Red Bull is 100% Dexter. We bought his mother, First Lady, in order to introduce a new bloodline in to our herd. Mama is only 35″ tall and Red Bull’s sire stands at 38″, so we expect Red Bull to remain very compact. Registered as Jan’s Toyland High-Dex and as Dexter.

Speedo

  • Born: 09/1/2014
  • Gender: Heifer
  • Height: 16.5″ (at birth)
  • Breed: Miniature Highland Dexter (Mini High-Dex)
  • Available Now: $3000

Speedo is a little bit full of herself. And why shouldn’t she be? Her Mom is 100% Irish Dexter and Dad is Highland Dexter, which lends the miniature composition with the very gentle disposition — just what we like to see! Speedo is very active, loves to run (hence, the name) and has a curiosity about the world.

Sweetie Pie

  • Born: 4/18/2007
  • Gender: Cow
  • Height: 19.5” (at birth)
  • Breed: Miniature Highland Dexter (Mini High-Dex)
  • Available Now: $7000

We picked the perfect name for this Miniature Highland Dexter. Sweetie Pie is just that: Very lovable. Her calves have been as small as 15″ when born, a nod to the influence of the diminutive Dexter in her heritage. Of course, the Highland coat is evident as well. Sweetie Pie would make a great introduction to a small farm herd while providing companionship as a family “pet.

VooDoo Child

  • Born:  11/5/2009
  • Gender:  Cow
  • Height:  33″ (as an adult)
  • Breed:  Miniature Highland Dexter (Mini High-Dex)
  • Available Now: $5000

Jan’s Toyland VooDoo Child gets her small stature from her Miniature Irish Dexter lineage, while her “very hairy” appearance is inherited from her Miniature Highland heritage. Her half-brother Floppy stands only 33″ tall at 4 years old. VooDoo likes people, will eat from your hand, and is very hairy.

Annie

  • Born: 4/17/2009
  • Gender: Cow
  • Height: 35″ (as an adult)
  • Breed: Miniature Highland Dexter (Mini High-Dex)
  • Available Now: $3000

Annie is a very healthy and stable Miniature Highland Dexter. She delivers a calf every year, with one of her first being just 17″! The lineage held true with Annie’s Dam being only 34″ tall and her Sire a mere 37″. Annie and her babies are everything you could want in a Miniature Cow, and offers the best of the Dexter and Highland breeds. Annie is mother to our Mini Highland Dexter cow, Diamond.

Easter

  • Born: 3/27/2005
  • Gender: Cow
  • Height: 34” (as an adult)
  • Breed: Miniature Highland Dexter (Mini High-Dex)
  • Available Now: $3000

On Easter morning, we found this tiny Mini Highland Dexter bull calf next to his mother. We then did a cow count and one was missing. It was Peanut. So off to the woods we went to search. After a half-hour of walking we found Peanut with her newborn 17″ black heifer Mini Highland Dexter calf. So, we named them Easter and Bunny, respectively. Bunny went to a new home while Easter remains with us, offering up a new calf each year since. Easter has a bag ample enough to feed a calf AND provide milk for your family. The photo here shows Easter with Diamond, one of our Miniature Highland Dexter heifer calves, birthed by Annie.

Licorice

  • Born: /4/18/2007
  • Gender: Cow
  • Height: 19.5″ (at birth)
  • Breed: Miniature Highland Dexter (Mini High-Dex)
  • Available Now: $7000

Jan’s Toyland Licorice is bred to Floppy. Licorice will make a great starter cow for your farm. She is very gentle, will eat from your hand, and loves to be petted. Wonderful for children! She had her first heifer this year and is a fantastic mother.

Patches

  • Born: 4/8/2014
  • Gender: Cow
  • Height: 17.5″ (at birth)
  • Breed: Miniature Highland Dexter (Mini High-Dex)
  • Available Now: $3000

Jan’s Toyland Patches has remained very small cow (a nod to the Miniature Dexter). Her mother, Easter, has very large teets so this calf was bottlefed and will now follow you anywhere. In the photo shown here, she is in our home looking for her bottle!
