Pines End 16-75 "Hard Time" RR
PENC "Say What" X PENC "Black Kat"
A very intriguing pedigree combining ewes like SWSC "OIL", Homestead 07-643, Bauck 9-00, and PENC "Diamond"; we just felt like this was a very maternal oriented ordeal- and decided to add this ram to the breeding program
Leaf Livestock 62057 "Gordo" RR
Grand Champion Ram WI Sheep/ Wool Fest and pulled for final 4 of the Supreme Champion Drive
Class winning yearling ram at Illinois, Kentucky, and WI Sheep/ Wool Fest
Owned by Leaf Livestock, IL
"Gordo" sired a super fancy set of ewe lambs for us in the only lamb crop, and just one ram lamb. He bred his super soft, fine fleece on routinely, and those daughters should be major breeding pieces for generations to come!
"Smokin' Gun" QR
We purchased "Smoking Gun" through the online Gehring dispersal alongside his mother, "MJ". We then sold half interest in this ram to Borcher Sheep Co, WY.
"Smoking Gun" sires lambs with extreme length of body, and plenty of growth. The fleeces are good solid medium wool Columbia type, and his lambs tend to have plenty of color palate.
"Midnight Gambler" QR
This was our first Wolf ram, purchased as a baby off the farm, and sired by that "Maybuck" ram that made such a string of winners for both his owners. The "Gambler" offspring around here are hard to miss, as they're extremely moderate framed, way neat made sheep with tons and tons of bone and substance. His downfall was the production of a number of white offspring.
"Beer Money" QR
This Wolf ram was purchased just prior to winning the 2014 National Champion ram at Louisville as our 2nd addition from that program. He sired a nice set of females for us in the year we used him really hard. His daughters and sons alike are extremely good patterned sheep, great structural integrity, and tons of eye appeal. "Beer Money" sired very few white lambs, but did need protected in serious manor in terms of producing enough bone and substance under his offspring. We hope the "Beer Money" daughters are wise investments into the future.
We purchased half interest in this ram alongside Leaf Livestock in the Pines End/ Wolf online sale as a mature ram for $2600. We thought buying the current record selling ram of the breed would be a great move, but unfortunately, "Gunsmoke" went sterile while we had him in breeding season, and he sired zero lambs for us. Our half has now been sold to our partner, who is getting a few really late born lambs from him.
"Gunsmoke" belongs on the reference list purely because his influence in so strong in our flock through different purchases made over the years.
