"We May Be Small, but Quality is Our Goal"


Kathy Dombrowski

Welcome to the Raptor Ridge Ranch, located Loomis which is in the foothills of the Sierras in Northern California.  We have
been raising cattle since the 70's and in 1984 were introduced to Pinzgauer cattle at our local college.  Since then we have stayed with  purebred Pinzgauer cattle and never looked back..  At the start we had named our ranch Mini Acres after our first cow, a Jersey Angus who had 11 calves for us, her last two were Pinzgauer crosses.  We have changed the ranch name to Raptor Ridge because of all the hawks and owls that live in our area.  The Red Tailed  hawk in the Logo was just taking off and I was able to catch his take off. We now have several families of Red Shoulder Hawks nesting close by.

At the moment have a small herd of 3 mother cows and  2 heifers . Raptors Double 07 has been sold but d his 2014 babies are now here.   We have one calf left to sell after weaning. Check out our Pinzgauer Page for Cattle for sale and more info on this fine breed.

In addition to our cattle we also raise Australian Shepherds, check out our Aussie Page to see what is happening with our dogs.  We do not have any litters planned till next year, but when we breed we try to produce the best, all around dogs that can do it all. Our pups have done well in conformation, performance, and herding.   All have great temperaments and are structurally correct.

Sammy Scissor Paws- we lost this Puppy Raiser at almost 18 years of age. He is missed dearly

Our new kitten Simon

Missy - our other fuzzy

In late August we lost  "Filly", Peppermint Pati's 35year old daughter. Peppermint (AQHA name Peppy Polka) was a granddaughter of the great AQHA sire PEP UP. "Filly" (registered  name Sweet Sasions) was by Sweet Daddy a top running Quarter horse in California and later stood at stud  in Brazil. Sweet Daddy is out of the great mare, Vandys  Katsy who also produced Sugar Vandy. Only horse now is a nice Grullo filly we  holly "Holly".  Holly is a is breeding stock paint and a beautiful Grulla color. She is my new "do it all horse".  She is pretty good on cows, loves the trail and really has a good mind. 

  "Filly making a run on
a  longhorn"  We just lost her at age 34.

Peppermint at 32
Gone, but never forgotten, She was 35 years young.

We lost old Peppermint at age 34 on March 16, 1999 to complications of old age. She is now buried on a hillside sharing a pasture with cattle, donkeys and other assorted wildlife.I had owned Pepper since she was a foal and also owned her mother. She traveled with us for a tour of duty in Hawaii. Sailing over by boat and returning by plane has made her quite a traveler. Peppermint has her ROM in Western Pleasure and has points in Western Riding, English Pleasure, and Halter. We spent many an hour pleasure riding and just enjoying the out doors. Peppermint showed in halter until she was 32.. The picture was taken at the 1996 Loomis Basin Horsemen's Association Horse show. She was first in the Old Timers Halter Class. This class is for horses 20 years old and over.

Peppermint was always there to listen to me when I needed someone to talk to. It was hard to say goodbye as Granny was a friend and pal. She will be loved and missed tremendously by all she touched. We know she is galloping through the hills up above watching over us. We love you Granny

And now we have lost her Daughter, Filly.  She was  34  when she left us August 2014.
