My name is Jason. My friends call me Grumpy. My wife and I own a small farm "Grumpy Farms" In a little 1 stoplight town in East Tennessee. We raise chickens & duck, but have just gotten into Miniature Sottish Highlanders. I was wondering of anyone else raises this breed of cattle. ImageUploadedByCattle Forum1383453425.983203.jpg this is LD. He is around 400 pounds and is 9 moths old. Full grown he'll be around 500 pounds. The fence he his standing in front of is only 3 feet tall to give you an idea of his height. As you can see my wife lives having her Little Dude around. He been bottle & hand raised since birth.

His coat is a mixture of short hair close to his hide and long hair on top of that. It will stay that way. In this picture we was about 400 pounds. He'll be around 500 when full grown. His meat is 98% fat free. These are the reasons people raise them. Not me. He is our baby. Thank you for checking him out.

This is what he looks like now. Our deck that he standing next to is 4 feet from the ground. January 24th he will be 1year old. LD is just another part of the family.

I don't know how to add a video to this post so I have some new stills of LD running and playing out by our chicken coop. I can't wait till spring to get 2 more Miniature Scottish Highlanders to join our family.

I hate the way our chicken coop looks in ten winter. I put the blue tarps on to try and keep my chickens from getting the full force of the wind that comes thru the valley here. Anyway, we were out there working on taking down the old coop when LD decided he wanted to play.

We treat him like a dog because he acts like one of the dogs. We wrestle and chance each other. We bath him when it's warm enough and of course brush him. He one of the family.
