This dude is an embarrassment to society, and the perfect example of people focusing so much on buying tag colors, that they overlooked a tremendous animal.  This guy has grown into a flat awesome young yearling ram!

One word, EXCITING

Rambouillet SIres:

Borcher 7043 "Tongue Tied" RR


Sired by Bauck 5-24 "Peace Pipe", 2016 National Champion Rambouillet National Sale


This is the first year we have chosen to produce any purebred Rambouillet lambs, and selected this guy to head that program.  We will also mate a select group of finewool natural colored ewes to him hoping for colored results. "TT" brings an interesting combination of Rambouillet traits to the table.  "TT" stood 2nd in the late junior ram lamb class and was a member of the 2nd pair of ram lambs at Illinois this summer! We also won the early ram lamb class, early yearling ewe class, and 1st pair of yearling ewes at state fair!

Reference Sires:


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!


"Gordo" is the sire to "Angel Eyes", our Reserve Champion ewe at the 2017 Illinois State Fair and Reserve fine ewe at NAILE Natural Colored Shows!

Wolf 13-28 "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.  We hope the "Beer Money" daughters are wise investments into the future. 

 

Gehring 1418 "Smokin' Gun" QR


We purchased this PENC "Diamond Jack" son, "Smoking Gun" through the online Gehring dispersal alongside his mother, "MJ".  We then sold half interest in this ram to Borcher Sheep Co, WY.  He is now owned by Mikara Anderson, PA.

"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


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.  

"Gambler" has a baby brother born fall of 2017 that has a promising future as a stud ram around here!  


Gehring 1151 "GUNSMOKE" QR


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, .
