Thank you for visiting our web site for miniature cattle.  Rainbow Ranch is our registered name and "Texas Mini Cattle" is our web address.  Established in 1998, I started with Black Brangus.  I began changing to miniature cattle, specifically miniature Herefords in 2009.  I always wanted to get back to my country roots and to raise cattle, but found the standard breed much larger than I (and my 125 acres of land) were prepared to handle. In doing the research, I found many articles and websites about the mini cattle breeds; and, after talking to numerous wonderful people in the miniature cattle breed business I knew I had a match. I could handle and maintain more of the mini cattle on my property and work with our local FFA and 4H programs.


Today I am a proud member of the Hereford Association and the Miniature Hereford Breeders Association. All of my cattle are registered horned or polled Herefords. Take a look above and you will see our herd bull “Dapper Dan”.  He is very docile and enjoys a good scratch when you have the time. On the "Miniature Cattle" and "Miniature Herefords" info pages, you can find general information about miniature cattle and miniature Herefords, as well as many of the facts we found  extremely useful in making our decision. Check out our "Gallery" page for some of our other "critters".  If you’ve already made your decision and you are looking for a miniature Hereford, take a look at our "For Sale" page to see what we have available.

August 2018:    It has been a difficult year.  But we just got a good rain and the ponds are refreshed, and the grass should green up nicely and I might get a second cut of hay in a few weeks, God willing.  My most recent loss was one of my beautiful cows to cancer.  I had put her in the pasture where I keep my retired and other needs animals.  Didn't know she was carrying and was surprised to find the baby.  She was so weak at this point that she couldn't clean or nurse him.  I got him started on his colostrum and milk replacement.  Mama died on day four but baby boy is doing fine with his nanny cow, Mandy.  Check him out on the for sale page.
