Spanish goats are harder to find than they used to be. Have you tried Kiko or TexMaster?

We still have some Kiko/Spanish crosses that work well for us. The pure Kiko we raised did not do too good in our enviroment though.

I can't believe I solved my problem with the help of this data. Have a good day!

we purchased some f/b kikos from eastern canada..1 two yr old buck and a yearling buck along with 5 registered doelings ..this was 3 yrs ago...the buck was sick when he came off the trailer and died with 10 days , the breeder refunded our $1,000.00 that we paid for him ... the yearling got sick and died a year later after being doctored for a month..one of the doelings died within the year, got thin ( had wormed etc ) red cell etc....the other 4 have survived and are doing good....we live in an area where it was -39 degress plus wind chill hitting -53..back in the middle of Feb/2014,,,goats have to be tough too live here..we have approx 50 spanish/cashmere goats and approx 60 composites...as well as 150 boer goats...yes the spanish are overall better moms by far...we do have some good boer moms as well..in that cold weather alot of the spanish will be lying by themselves not huddled up with others we are brining in 10 spanish bucks to breed up the hair coats and mothering ablilities of our composite doelings...definitely tougher than the boers,,,,too many things to say... this is enough
