    I'm looking for either Dutch Belteds or Belted Galloways. Actually, both. Anybody know where I might be able to find some in the Mid-Atlantic area? Thanks for any leads.

    Near the intersection Of I-40 and I-77 here in NC there is a small farm with a number of these pasture ornaments. Is that too far to travel? If not, I could stop by there and ask if they have anything for sale. Just let me know!

    Do they have a breed association? I found my Dexter on the classified section of the breed association page. They also had lists of breeders by state. I would think most breed associations would have something similar. I don't know about any but Dexter's but I'd bet they are out there.

    Just Googled them and came up with:
