Fingask Natalie and Keerholme Pandora
The Ronick Herd started as a hobby in March 1980 when Ronald Dick aged only 18 at the time decided to spend his then life-long savings on an in-calf cow with heifer calf at foot namely Fingask Natalie and Keerholme Pandora for 5500gns. David at the same sale purchased his first maiden heifer Skelden Ombre for 3200gns. It was as a result of Ronald’s interest that the herd prefix of Ronick was formed by merging the two names together.

The majority of the existing females today have been bred from a nucleus of approximately 20 females that were purchased throughout the 1980’s at various dispersals and breeding sales. The principal ones to mention in addition to Natalie and Ombre are Druk Oiseau, Hampton Maria, Olivette, Rive, Heckington Pipkin, Oakley Onde, Cockleshell Tracy, Cockleshell Tara, Orchard Vanilla, Broadmeadows Vera, Swanington Begonie and last but not least Broadmeadows Ainsi.
