KF-Acres 1805F "Selfie" RR
"Monkey Rench" x "Sara" (Joe Jr. Daughter)
Owned with Borcher Sheep Co
"Selfie" has a bright spot in both breeding programs, and will be the main sire in the next few years in both as well. There is a phenomenal amount of good in this sheep with his balance, eye appeal, thickness, and bonework. Even better he brings a great stud ewe mother to the equation.

"Tongue Tied" (purebred Rambo) x KF-Acres 1624 "Smoke N Mirrors"
"Style" is an interesting looking young lamb with a bright future we think. He combines our Rambouillet stud ram, with the daughter of "Gunsmoke's" full sister. His dam was our Ohio consignment no-sale- later turned into the 2nd place early yearling ewe at Louisville, "Smoke N Mirrors". "Style" possess extreme length of body, very unique front end extension, and a hip unmatched in dimension by few fleece sheep.
KF-Acres 1812 "Purple Smoke" RR
KF-Acres 1813 "MIND=BLOWN" RR
"Monkey Rench" x "Chalk Outline"
This exciting ram prospect reminds me a ton of his maternal grandsire, "Chrome" with his massive body and very production oriented look. He's a big ribbed, deep bodied, structurally correct kind of a sheep, and I see much value in those thoughts. "Purple Smoke" has an RR twin brother, "MIND=BLOWN" RR that will also stick around as a stud ram! From a female standpoint, we think these 2 rams will compliment each our ewe base quite well.

Photo taken as a mature ram, April 2017.
"Monkey" worked like a charm here this past year. During 2018 we sold 18 stud rams, and kept back 4 ram lambs for ourselves, and almost every one of them was sired by "Monkey". The offspring from this stud ram are extremely modern in build, being flawless in pattern, way big footed, very correct overall, and thickness for days! 2 of our 3 retained "Monkey" daughters won the 2 spring ewe lamb classes at IL State Fair this summer! As stated by judge Rod Crome, our ewe lamb just commanded show ring presence as soon as she stepped foot on the shavings!

2nd spring fine wool ram lamb, 2017 NAILE
1st yearling and Grand Champion Ram 2018 IL State Fair
We found this stud ram in a dominate black program in Ohio as a baby, and decided to gamble on him since he was the right color. He coasted through fall, stood 2nd at Louisville, and about come February time really exploded. We mated this guy to about 6 of our very best 8 stud ewes and decided to see what happened. He's extremely good footed, very correct topline, and awesome hipped. Fleece is really uniform and bold.

1st fall ram lamb NAILE
"Skipper" is a "Gunsmoke" son with no question based on physical looks. They say some apples don't fall far from the tree, and he certainly didn't. He's got that topline, hip, bone, and color to go along with it. We like this guy a ton, and expect the bulk of 2019 spring lambs to be sired by him.

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, .
