Welcome to Little Hoof Ranch

Don and Becky Swisher with herd sire CJ’s Archie

We are located three miles south of beautiful Douglas, Wyoming. Nestled at the foot of the Laramie Mountains with the North Platte River running right through our community, Douglas is an ideal home for our livestock. We have been raising Dexter’s over two decades. We have a small herd of Registered Red Polled Dexter Cattle. Our cattle have all the required tests needed and our entire herd is PHA and Chondro free. All of the cattle are halter trained. This is a must since we show our animals. The Little Hoof Herd is registered with the “ADCA” American Dexter Cattle Association.

Our Dexter cattle are: A2A2 and A2A1. They are Heterozygous and Homozygous polled. Our main goal is to Raise High quality beef(meat) and Show animals. Their dispositions and confirmations are most important to us. Although we do not milk our cattle it is an important factor as well. We also have semen available from our bulls.

We are Members of the Rocky Mountain Dexter Breeders Association. In 2020, we were very fortunate to be able to donate a heifer to the Rocky Mountain Dexter Association Youth Heifer Program. Kaylee Snyder was awarded “Little Hoof Bella”. We are excited for their future.

The Little Hoof Ranch is the Home of the 2018 National Grand Champion Dexter Bull-CJ’s Archie and the 2020 National Grand Champion Female-Moosters Peaches’n Cream & 2020 National Grand Champion Cow/Calf-Moosters Peaches’n Cream and Little Hoof Phoebe.

In 2015 We won the Premier Dexter Exhibitors Award at the Wyoming State Fair. This was the first time the Dexters were recognized for this award.

In 2014 We won the Premier Breeders Award AOB. This was the first year we showed our cattle.

You will also find American Miniature Horses on The Little Hoof Ranch to complete our family.
