100% New Zealand Buck

~ RDH ONCE IN A BLUE MOON ~

 

Levi, 100% New Zealand Buck Goat
In the summer of 2016 we made a decision to only have 100% New Zealand bucks for our breeding purposes. We needed a bloodline to compliment the lines of RDH Sequoia who already had everything we were looking for. Our decision was made to include Blue's Son genetics in to our breeding program. Blue's Son excelled in size, parasite resistance and producing does with superior maternal traits. We found what we were looking for in GHK Way Beyond The Blue who is owned by Dean Hill Kikos. Way is an own son of Blue's Son and out of a daughter of the legendary Iron Horse x a TAY 45 daughter. Way has size, length and mass at 2 years old. After looking at the quality he's producing at Dean Hill, our decision was made on a buck by him.

  RDH Once In A Blue Moon's Papers

Charles Reece posted a photo of a 2 month old buckling of Way's on Facebook. This buckling was growing out great and was of the caliber necessary for a breeding buck. He was long, already had a big shoulder and neck and was as solid as a rock. His mother is a granddaughter of SKY W018 Warsaw who is also a son of Blue's Son. Warsaw also appears in his mother's pedigee again on the bottom maternal line. So RDH Once In A Blue Moon goes to Blue's Son in 3 of his 4 bloodlines with Iron Horse in the 4th line. Genetics that should produce the top shelf quality we are looking for. In 20 minutes, RDH Once In A Blue Moon was ours. To top it all off, he's red roan with dapples all over and blue eyes. Now color is not the most important point but it sure is nice to look at a quality animal who's pretty too! We call him Levi. He came to us at 2 1/2 months old. Two weeks later at 3 months old, he weighed in at 55 lbs. At 17 months old, he weighed in at 185 lbs. He's not a tall buck yet but is ALL body mass. He's now 2 years old and as you can see from this photo, his body mass is tremendous.

His first kid crop came in February, 2017. We were delighted with what he had produced. ALL his kids have his body mass plus early height. We have added 2 purebred daughters of Sequoia along with several other top shelf New Zealand does to his mob for 2018 kids. There is also a waiting list for Once In A Blue Moon. Please call to be added.
