After getting out this year and attending several sheep shows and sales, we knew what bloodlines intrigued us most. With our focus on genetic pieces from Begalka, Droppert, Ellerbrock and Impact many of our ewes now go back time and again to great bucks such as the Cabaniss-bred Allred-Elliott Composure buck through both Money Maker and Swamp Donkey, Duffy’s Trunk and Young Jock bucks, and Millers’ Masterpiece and Buckmaster bucks. Being unable to find “just the right” stud ram, we also decided to A.I. most of our mature ewes. Needless to say, we are looking forward to our 2015 lamb crop!
Apollo’s dam is a full sister to Care Bear and Impact’s high selling ewe in the 2012 Diva Sale. Most of our mature ewes were bred to Apollo this year. We can’t wait to see his lambs in late January 2015!
We love the power of this ram! We had hoped to get a son of his out of the popular Crown Jewel ewe. When that feel through we quickly decided to on using Trail Blaizer for our smallest framed sheep. These matings should be a winning combo!
We saw several lambs sired by Pimp Juice this summer and were very impressed. We only bred him to a handful but can’t wait til lambing season begins!
There are a lot of cool rams out there this year, and in our opinion, this is definitely one of them. I am still not sure how we were able to pull off purchasing multiple ewes bred to Angry Bird, not that we are complaining!
We are very excited to have purchased a Money Maker daughter bred to Arms Race from Impact’s 2014 Bred Ewe Sale. [click here to view video]
