The value of this offering can only be appreciated by understanding the foundation.

Our original nannies were selected from a historic west Texas ranch that for decades allowed Mother Nature to do the selection. These nannies came highly recommended from individuals that had been purchasing them for years. They, like myself, found these Kensing influenced Spanish goats to be very hardy true foragers, prolific, exceptional mothers with great udders and carry exceptional structure.

After watching these nannies grow we began our search for the best stud bucks to complement our program.

After many weeks traveling and going to many of the “foundation, discovered and established bloodlines herds”, plus many more herds, 7 Kensing stud bucks were selected from the Whitworth family stud pen.

The Howard family dating back 8 verifiable generations, are known for being a breeders of quality livestock. We are fortunate to receive visitors from reputable true livestock people. It was through one of these visits that the next step in our breeding plan was discovered.

Kedrick Miller, a very successful goat breeder, told of how he had located a small herd that he had found to be exceptionally fertile, great mother’s, small birth weights but fast growing with more bone and substance than is found in typical Spanish goats.

Arrangements were made and the stud buck named “Kendrick” was purchased. We test bred Kedrick and found his offspring to be even more than we had hoped for!

A breeding plan was developed. We then raised a large number of 50/50 Kendrick/Kensing studs. These studs were bred back to the excellent maternal Kensing influenced doe resulting in a herd of very consistent quality 1/4 Kendrick 3/4 Kensing. We coined this combination the “KENDRICK” line.

While color was not specifically selected for, the brown with black line back pattern of the “KENDRICK” is known to be much sought after by Texas Spanish goat ranchers and many Spanish goat enthusiasts. After raising this line, all non “KENDRICK” line goats were marketed leaving every goat on the place the improved “KENDRICK” line.

We continue to cull, without mercy, every animal that does not meet our strict one strike and your out policy.

We continue to select for fertile, prolific, small to medium birth weight, excellent udders, fast growing, structurally sound, heavy weight, full muscled, attractive and balanced animals.

Our does kid on the range with NO supervision and mature nannies consistently wean 160-175% kid crop. The goats are rotated across a few thousand acres throughout the year. The goats respect barb wire, electric, and net wire fences and have been raised trusting guard dogs.

Our list of satisfied customers continue to grow. We invite you to join this list!

The value of this offering can only be appreciated by understanding the foundation from whence they came and by utilizing these genetics in YOUR herd. Visit for details on individual billies.
