2018 news
Decided to use last of Enzo semen but no success, so with that in mind our last throw of the dice I waited for Sansa to come back into season and in Late July I made arrangements with Cheryl Currie from Caprivi kennels to use her young boy Ike. Ike is closely related to Sansa through his grandfather, who is Sansa’s father. Cheryl agreed that it would be a good mating, so  with that both Tayla and I waited for the right time and we started the process of shipping fresh chilled semen and doing a TCI on Sansa that next day. The result was one puppy boy a healthy 710 grams at birth with Sansa having a C-Section as she would not conceive him without help. He is growing well and is a lovely red wheaten boy no kink tail no white and a lovely ridge. Tayla named him Hulk obvious choice when you think of it, and her show name if accepted will be Kinshasa Lonesome Warrior. So now we wait and see how Hulk matures and the rest will hopefully fall into place.
2017 news
At just half way through the year both Tayla & I decided it was best we rehome Ragnar, as he hasn’t turned out to the standard we ask of our dogs. With this in mind I knew it wouldn’t be hard to find him his forever home ,& within days I was approached by two of my puppy owners to have him. I decided to place him with his already de-sexed litter sister as the age factor would benefit both. He was shortly after de-sexed and went to live in his new bush surrounds to enjoy his new life.
Our objective now is to try and get Sansa pregnant when she is due to my last remaining Enzo semen and try and start again.

Coming towards the end of 2016 I did a mating of Ch Kinshasa Crimson Quill (Pink ) to Ch Etosha Quatu of the Asgard ( Quatu)
The result was 10 puppies 1 passed away a day later born at 170 grams only.
5 boys & 5 girls 2 boys have single crowns 1 multi crowns. The girls 2good ridges 1 badly offset
1 ridge less boy 2 ridge less girls some white on most. Puppies are clear by parentage. I wont be keeping any puppy from this litter but one girl will potentially go to a show home interstate.

2015 News
This year sees us move hopefully for the final time back onto a one acre property in Pearcedale. It has been a long journey but both myself and the dogs seem a lot happier. I have decided to do a repeat mating of Bronte to Enzo. I was very impressed with the only surviving puppy from the original mating that I have decided to take the risk of a repeat mating,something I don’t normally do.So hopefully she will get pregnant and produce some beautiful happy and healthy puppies.Bronte was inseminated on the 21st of February 2015.Hopefully all goes well and we have some nice puppies.
At the end of March we discovered that Bronte was pregnant so we will wait to see what happens in the future for our girls.
On a brighter note in far North Queensland our youngest ridgeback Kuda will be now known as Supreme Ch Kinshasa Brass Bullets after winning his 11th Best in show. In NZ his brother Butch Ch Kinshasa Kiss My Brass has been holding the flag by winning over there as well.
