Born and raised in Idaho and proud of it! Ranching is my first love besides my family. I'm the oldest boy and 2nd oldest of seven children. The family's favorite sport is running which I have done since I was 9. God has given me the ability to race on the national scene placing as high as 8th in the nation in the 3,000 meters. My racing has taken me to over half the states in the US. I also love playing team sports like basketball and flag football, and my personal favorite, ultimate frisbee. I played three years of highschool basketball as a starter for Hope House Christian Academy which is a Christian Children's Home that we are involved with.

"I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing unto thee among the nations. For thy mercy is great unto the heavens, and thy truth unto the clouds. Be thou exalted. O God, above the heavens: let thy glory be above all the heavens." Psalm 57:9-11

Hey Josiah. I was looking at a Dexter breeder's website just now and saw this quote on their site...knew you'd appreciate it.
"Cultivators of the earth are the most valuable citizens. They are the most vigorous, the most independent, the most virtuous and they are tied to their country and wedded to its liberty and interests by the most lasting bands."
-Thomas Jefferson, letter to John Jay, August 23rd, 1785
