BHR OG's Gunnar - 100% NZ
Gunnar is our main Herd Sire. His sire is RDH Outlaws Goldmine. This young buck still has a lot go growing to do and as of Fall of 2018, he was tipping the scales at 200 pounds. He is consistently a FAMACHA 1 and his hoofs rarely need trimming. He has a huge back end and wide chest. He's gentle with the young bucklings, and he's easy to handle for any routine health exams.
Gunnar has sired 44 kids thus far and we haven't been disappointed. With a 52% buck, and 47% doe progeny count, size and color are evident with all his offspring with 84% of his kids having lots of color. Gunnar has been bi-annually tested and is negative for CAE, CL and Johne's Disease and is yearly vaccinated for CD&T and CL.
DOG Hamish - 100% NZ
Sire: BHR OG's Gunnar
Dam: RDH Isaiah's Black Satin
When we first began this endeavor, a wise couple told us, "breed with a purpose".
This young buckling was born on August 9, 2018 and raised a twin. He weighed 8 pounds at birth and weaned at 80 days with a weight of 46 pounds. He is a beautiful red roan with icy blue eyes. He's wide in the chest with thick back legs and he's built solid. Hamish is double bred Goldmine's Blockbuster and his dam's side brings Iron Horse, Sunboy Stanton, and Tom Black genetics and his sire's side brings Outlaw and Lightin's Pan genetics.
We are super excited to retain this buckling and add him to our breeding program this fall with a doeling sired by TMK Odin as well a couple of other does we have here.
Welcome to The Abandoned Dog
RHK Strike's War Paint
RHK Strike's War Paint - 100% NZ
Dual Registered (NKR/AKGA)
Sire: RDH Strike Gold
Dam: AFS C132 (Sugar)
We are super excited to add these genetics into our breeding program here at the farm.
This young guy was born February 27, 2019. He was born a triplet and has grown exceptionally well, in fact he is just now turning 7 months old and weighed in at 95.6 pounds.
Brian Graves, of Rocky Hill Kikos where War Paint came from, has a similar farm management style like we do here at The Abandoned Dog. This includes rotational grazing through similar browse and pasture grasses, CAE, CL and Johnes testing and CD&T plus CL vaccination protocols. When you maintain a closed herd, it's a big decision to open your farm up and add new animals.
This guy is built like a tank. Thick neck, straight legs and back, dark even hooves, deep & wide chest and a heavy back end.
We are looking forward to his offspring and this quality will no doubt be passed down to his kids.
