About Us

 

My name is Oliver Ray and I live with my wife, Amy, on a small "little-piece-of-Heaven" acreage called Paradise Ranch in Buckingham, Florida.  We breed, train, and show Quarter Horses and also breed and sell miniature Herefords.  We also own a commercial landscape company that tries its best to keep us from focusing totally on the cattle and horses.


I am a semi-retired college professor and have both a Masters and Ph.D. degree...which really doesn't help much at all when it comes to breeding horses and cattle!  Ranch life is as much about passion for the land and love for animals as it is about intelligence or education.   


We raise Miniature Herefords for sale to other 'Mini' owners for either breeding or for show and to those who just want some cattle on their property that they can safely handle.  We are always happy to entertain visitors to see our herd and learn more about the benefits and joys of Miniature Herefords. If you are considering raising Miniature Herefords and would like to talk shop, please feel free to come by and ask all the questions you like.
