It’s been almost a year…

…since the birth of what we hope will be another line of pure, traditional English Devon at Thistle Hill.

H364 Bull Calf and Dam

H364 was sired by Champson Defender via AI ten months ago and is now ready to be weaned.  He was an early success story for Church, who is now waiting for Defender #2 to calve in October.

Pure Devon genetics are increasingly difficult to find.  Even some English breeders we know have given up because bulls are in such short supply there.

Seeing what was happening, in both England and the States, Wooz and I decided we would create a living archive here in Virginia.
