Item Description
A.
Comments:On picture taking day this year, we had 226 lambs on the ground sired by 16 different rams. A high number of these lambs were born from mid-December to mid-January. Please understand that the 19 lambs in this sale were selected from a large core of well-bred individuals. It seems the trend today is to have a sale with only a few lambs selected from only 45 to 50 lambs and then have another sale in a couple weeks from the next 45 or 50, or even less lambs. We are not doing it that way. However, we now have over 275 lambs born from 19 different rams, so there will be younger lambs available privately. We always try to include a couple of very neat Dorset ewe lambs in our sale. We have most certainly done that this year. If you study the pictures and their pedigrees, you will also discover an outstanding Blackface female as well as some interesting Blackface and Dorset ram/wether options. We were unable to get any Power Plant naturally bred lambs last year. Therefore, we mated several ewes “A.I.” to this great sire this year with excellent success. Power Plant is a Boulevard x Groovy son that has given us numerous winners. Line Up hardly needs an introduction after what he accomplished for Mr. Franklin. Groovy is a Burson bred ram that Ted Greiner was kind enough to sell us a few years ago. Boulevard came to us as proven ram from the Alison McGolden flock. On the Dorset side of the ledger, both White Lightning and Dangerous Game have been very good to us for a few years now. Larry Legend is a Dangerous Game son out of a Lottery Pick ewe; which is exactly the way that Power Play is bred. Quiet Storm is an “ET” ram sired by High Definition out of the Jason Shuck family’s great “Snowflake” ewe. All of the lambs in the sale will be available at Brad’s place for your personal inspection the weekend prior to the sale. (Feb. 27th and 28th). We appreciate your interest and will try to answer any and all questions concerning the consignment both in person and by telephone.

Comments:Whether this lamb ends up a stud buck in someone’s flock, or a wether in the show ring, we feel strongly that the purchaser is going to be very happy. This lamb is that rare package of completeness, power down the top, level out the rump, full in the leg and shallow in the chest floor. Mix in soundness, balance, a great loin edge, a wide base, standing on plenty of bone and shag and one sees greatness. Some of you have called expressing an interest in purchasing a Line Up x Groovy ram. We have told you there should be some good ones later. Facing reality head on – there probably won’t be any better than this one.

Comments:This sheep is ultra cool in his skeleton and going to do nothing but get better. This guy is big footed, square hipped, deep flanked and we haven’t even gotten to his bold upper rib, tremendous stifle and cool look from the side. We believe this one will always be moderate in frame. Enjoy showing a good one.

Comments:Be sure to take special note of this dark fibered lamb. He is extremely heavy boned and big footed. Add some shag for good measure. He is square racked, up-fronted and level designed, while tying in correctly in his hip-loin junction. When mated to blue ewes’, Power Plant has sired Champions and Reserves at major shows. This lamb is improving daily to the point he could well be another one. Check out the picture of this lamb’s full sib sold on our 2014 on-line sale.

Comments:This lamb has a full brother ram that is making an impact for his owner, as well as another maternal half brother doing well for yet another proud owner. Of course, there are numerous paternal half brothers working now in a lot of Dorset flocks. This lamb will make an excellent wether, so if you choose to go that route, no hard feelings. In a word, this guy is thick. He has great spring of rib, massive down the top and through the center of his butt. He has been a barn favorite from day one.

Comments:White Lightning / Dangerous Game is certainly a mating that has worked time and again for us. This lamb is still a bit green, but is a very complete, moderately framed individual. He carries down the top and out the rump very level. He continues to improve and we believe he will not stop doing that.

Comments:Altogether now, let’s all say it – WOW. This little gal is super well-balanced and symmetrical with a striking combination of muscle and femininity. This 640 ewe lamb is a thick, sound, good patterned female with a great hip. Enjoy her in the show ring; reap profits with her in your flock later. She is that kind.

Comments:This wether has been very popular around here from day one. Please take a very serious look here and think of the future possibilities and outcomes this lamb could give your family. He has always had today’s trendy look with a brownish tint. Being such a stout, big footed, shaggy wether that is so well balanced, it leaves little doubt that he will always be special.

Comments:A heavy boned, extremely well-balanced lamb that is square and powerful in his hip. A twin to 648, the only thing for sure is that these lambs are both very special. We haven’t been sure which one we think is the best one, and our visitor’s have been of little help, because some favor one and others the other one. However, they like us, think both will be great.

Comments:This guy is very level, extended in the correct places and moves very freely with a long stride. If you happen to have an earlier show to shoot for, then bid with confidence that this one will get there. He is not small, but he carries himself so well. Note how everything just seems to fit in his confirmation. A prime example of this is how correctly his neck extends out of his shoulders.

Comments:This guy is powerful, level and balanced. Perhaps as important as anything is he knows he is good and is willing to cooperate and BRACE. If you have a young person looking for a lamb that will never be real big, but will always be competitive, this one could be the one.

Comments:She is a triplet sister to the 608 Wether. They came into this world small but gritty. The other triplet ewe lamb we plan to retain, but this one is the better of the two. White Lightning has sired Champion wethers at the Indiana State Fair and at Louisville, as well as class winning females at Indiana and Louisville. Don’t miss her.

Comments:We didn’t really make much of a sale order at all. However, we did intentionally put this one last because we knew those of you that had previously seen the lamb would be going down this list looking for this one. Perhaps you would remember another you liked on the way down. This is another Line Up / Groovy cross that has worked so very well for us. This lamb’s Groovy mother has been a great producer. Tyler Gross very successfully placed her Line Up wether lamb last year. The twin ewe remained in our flock. This lamb’s twin will also remain with us. 677 is a big legged, square racked sheep that stands on a lot of bone.
