Spanish Black Turkeys
The Black Spanish Turkey is a heritage breed whose lineage can actually be traced back to Mexican Turkeys that were taken back to Europe in the 1500s. Black Spanish Turkeys, as they were called in Spain, were brought back to North America with the colonists where they were crossed with the Eastern Wild Turkey to form today's Black Spanish Turkey. With the rise of commercial broad breasted breed, the Black Spanish Turkey numbers began to decrease and are presently listed as 'critical'. However, because of the rise in sustainable agriculture and free range turkey popularity, the Black Spanish Turkey will soon recover.

Scottish Highlands Cattle
The Highland breed has lived for centuries in the rugged remote Scottish Highlands. The extremely harsh conditions created a process of natural selection, where only the fittest and most adaptable animals survived to carry on the breed.

Originally there were two distinct classes; the slightly smaller and usually black Kyloe, whose primary domain was the islands off the west coast of northern Scotland. The other was a larger animal, generally reddish in color, whose territory was the remote Highlands of Scotland. Today both of these strains are regarded as one breed – Highland. In addition to red and black, yellow, dun, white, brindle and silver are also considered traditional colors.

Angora Rabbit
This a variety of domestic rabbit bred for its long, soft wool. The Angora is one of the oldest types of domestic rabbit, originating in Ankara (historically known as Angora), Turkey, along with the Angora cat and Angora goat. The rabbits were popular pets with French royalty in the mid 18th century, and spread to other parts of Europe by the end of the century. They first appeared in the United States in the early 20th century. They are bred largely for their long Angora wool, which may be removed by shearing, combing, or plucking.
