100% NZ Bucklings
February and spring kidding has come to an end. Finally. The last kids born on April 5th!!! I thought that doe was gonna hang on to those kids til fall!! The 100% NZ bucklings are sons of RDH Indian Outlaw and RDH Red Cloud and are showing some real promise. They are also sons of RDH Ima Doll, RDH Mary, ACK Chloe (all sired by Indian Outlaw), and SDR Samantha Bear (Red Cloud). DOG Matilda has a super heavy purebred buck sired by Red Cloud that will most likely put more kiko influence AND pounds on his future kids for purebred and commercial breeders alike!! The late March and early April boys from the Mufasa does (E36 and E37) are beautiful boys, and have a couple of months to go before they really show us their stuff!! We will keep you posted. If you are interested in more information, please give us a call or send us an email.

100% NZ Son of RDH Kawliga and RDH Blondie, Red Cloud is a product of the selective breeding for which we have been striving over the last ten years of raising goats. After several kidding cycles with Indian Outlaw and Isaiah we have learned what breeding combinations work to the advantage of our program and the programs of farms who have put their confidence in the animals we have made available.
RDH Red Cloud was born in February of 2018, to our farms largest Isaiah's Fire doe, Blondie. She kidded twins, two bucks and they each weaned at 68 pounds at 90 days! We checked and double checked the scale to make sure it was accurate. Needless to say we were VERY happy. Red Cloud's sire, RDH Kawliga was one of three kids born to Indian Outlaw and Redneck Woman. That combination was truly amazing and one that we hope to repeat again in the future.
His growth rate was, at a year and a half old, still an average daily gain of .37 pounds per day!!
In September 2019, we made the decision to put our purebred and commercial does, along with a couple of 100% NZ in the breed pen with Red Cloud. Whether you are raising breeding stock or meat for the processor, size matters! We are counting on Red Cloud to bring that to the table with the girls he is currently servicing. Kids should be arriving mid February and we look forward to charting the progress of another generation of Dean Hill Kikos.
