    No. His dad is a solid black dexter. Im confused about the white as well. Mom is registered..dad was not. But we met both his parents. Dad was red and mom was black. ???

    That is crazy pants! Dexters can have white on their udder and a very small white spot by a hip but not faces. My first thought was a herford because of his mask. But thought no way. Then later i had an ah ha and thought mini herford maybe? Baldies are about the only that give the mask like that. A holstein will give random spots. But he is a cutie either way! Congrats.

    I agree. Our nieghbor has herford and we have had his bull in our pasture before..but we didn't have a bull then. Had a handsome red Hertford dexter cross bull born that year. So maybe?? That might have happened again.

    Kind of a bummer as the reason we bought a bull is to keep the breed pure. Poor fencing doesn't help. We are just happy everyone's healthy

    Oh gosh happybleats it sounds like you have the same situation as I do. It’s always fun when our angus cattle come out white, long horn or giant because the neighbors bull got in. But I do have to say though at least you got one adorable baby out of the deal. I love black white faces and black model faces.

    Me think we are foolish to think our Herford/Dexter cross was too young to breed these girls!! He would barely have been a year old.. When we bought the dexter bull who was older. Hubs figured he would dominate the ladies. Im thinking nope..Chuck got the dates. Talked to our neighbor and his Herford bull was not in that pasture during the time of breeding. Sooo Chuck it is. Live and learn. But I admit..I like the herford influence
