  PRAIRIE ROSE 4712-6  RR/NN

DOB:  1/27/14     TWIN 

     

SIRE:  "TUFF ENUF", LUXFORD 1407

DAM:  PRAIRIE ROSE 712


This is a bold, powerful stud ram with mass, flesh, spring and depth of rib.  He is a large dimensional ram and was an attention getter from day one.  Standing correctly on admirable bone, this buck puts it all together physically and has the added bonus of longevity in his genes from his maternal side.  He handles well over the top, loin and hip.  He could be an impactful ram for many.  Who said big rams can't have body, width and thickness?     His sire was Tuff Enuf, Luxford 12-1407, who was out of High Point 3106.  Tuff’s grandsire is Famous Frank, who also sired the Champion Ram at Louisville in 2013.  His dam, Prairie Rose 712, is a "Great Divide" (Luxford 1131) daughter who consistently produces high dollar stud prospects for us (some of which have sold at the Nugget) regardless of the ram she is paired with.  She is 8 years old and never misses. Her own daughter has one of our best buck lambs this year and 712 herself has an outstanding set of twins again this year.   His grandsire, "Great Divide" lived until he was 10 1/2 years of age and sired lambs up until he passed.  Out of the many rams we've used over the years, he's one of the ones I wish I could have back.   "Swagger" has frame with muscle and frame with fame... this ram is the real deal!  Top photo taken in early April.

"BRICK HOUSE"

PRAIRIE ROSE 4870-5   RR/NN

DOB:  1/24/14    TWIN

 

SIRE:  "TUFF ENUF", LUXFORD 1407

DAM:  PRAIRIE ROSE 870 

 

"Thick As A Brick" or "Built Like a Brick S--t House, are a few of the things that come to mind when you get your hands on this buck!  He's a deep bodied, complete type of ram with natural thickness front to back, fleshing ability with some excellent spring and depth of rib.  He is long through the hip.  He has a masculine head with good Suffolk character.  He moves out easily on a strong set of feet and legs.  He leans towards an older style Suffolk ram with a few modern updates and should please several of the buyers at Reno.  Sired by 'Tuff Enuf' and dammed by an old workhorse of a ewe, Prairie Rose 870 who is a grand daughter of 'Great Divide' on her paternal side and daughter of the old 356 ewe who was sired by Maverick, a Luxford "Big Easy" son from the 90's.  We always like to bring a ram to Reno that gives the buyers a choice.  We dug deep in our maternal pool to breed this guy for the range ram breeders.  If you want to make rams and you like 'em thick and smooth, this is the ram.

DOB:  2/09/14        TWIN

 

  SIRE:   "TUFF ENUF",  LUXFORD 1407

DAM:  PRAIRIE ROSE 1258   

 

 

"Tuff Enuf" sired an absolutely amazing group of lambs for us in his only year of service to us due to a career ending injury.  The ewes he gave us have been stellar!  This is the only "Tuff" daughter that I will sell and I hadn't intended to offer her but somebody told me I have to cut loose some of the good ones.  Belle is a beautiful, classy, high headed ewe with some power behind her.  Classic breed character.  She's pretty, yes, but she's got body...volume and capacity without sacrificing 'the look'.    Sired by Tuff Enuf and dammed by a Yukon Jack daughter, she is also a maternal great granddaughter to TomBoy, a female line that  flat out works and produces stud animals.   Her mother has another dandy pair of lambs on her this year, otherwise, I wouldn’t be offering this young lady for sale.  Good genes are no accident and she is no exception.  She is straight out of our keeper pen and heading to the Nugget in Reno.

SIRE:  "JACK OF DIAMONDS",  PRAIRIE ROSE 0606-5

DAM:  PRAIRIE ROSE 1131


 

This young ewe is a spit fire!  I had not originally intended to sell her or to take her to Reno but we thought that she was a great match up to 'Belle' so here she is.  She's been in my view shed since she was about a week old.  She is a stunningly attractive ewe that is a natural "pose-er" like her sire.  She's built rock solid however, and will impress you when she's handled with her correctness down her top and stoutness.  She's got the profile to stand out in the show ring and the volume and capacity to carry multiple lambs & to stand out in the lambing barn.  She's sired by 'Diamonds' as we call him around the ranch, who was the Reserve Grand Champion Ram at the Nugget in 2011,  and dammed by a daughter of "Double Shot of Jack", the full genetic brother (2 years older) to 'Diamonds.  Her grandmother was sired by the old Luxford stud, "Saddle Tramp", Luxford 04-1256A, who sired beautiful females and sired our Reserve Grand Champion Ram @ Reno in 2007.   Buy her separately or match her up with "Belle" for a powerful combination of proven genetics to show and breed with.

 "JACK DANIELS"

RR/NN 

DOB:  2/12/14    Twin

 

Sire:  "Jack of Diamonds",  Prairie Rose 0606-5

Dam:  Prairie Rose 1111  (Shanghai Noon x Prairie Rose 529) 

 

"Jack Daniels"  was originally sold in early May and destined to go to Michigan this month to be picked up at Sedalia, but due to changing circumstances and lack of payment, on "J.D." , he is now available as of 6/10/15.  Bolder and somewhat bigger he is the twin brother to Diamond Jim.  Similar in type and kind to his brother and yet different.  He is thicker over his top with a notch more rib shape, bone, body depth and balances well front to back. He has good width of chest without being coarse through his front end.   Their sire specializes in putting a big top on his progeny as well as an extra shot of hindsaddle and good level hip and "J.D" is no exception to this.  He won't disappoint when he's handled over his top and loin.  If you need some more width of top, levelness of top and hip and body in your sheep this ram should work well.  He also travels well on a good set of feet and legs as well.  You can read more about his maternal side in Diamond Jim's information below.  We both liked this ram from the get go!   It is unfortunate for us that the deal in Michigan fell through but a great opportunity for those still looking for a really good ram from proven genetics.  We still have time to be able to load him onto a trailer and get him to Sedalia.  This is the last opportunity to get the sheep east of Montana until September

"DIAMOND JIM"

  

DOB:  2/12/14      TWIN

 

SIRE:  "JACK OF DIAMONDS", PRAIRIE ROSE 0606-5

DAM:   PRAIRIE ROSE 1111 (Shanghai Noon x Prairie Rose 529) 

 

       Strong and athletic, this well built, straight made ram is correct throughout with a good topline and tailhead.  He balances well front to back.  When you get your hands on this buck, he handles quite well over his top with width and thickness, a trait passed on by his sire, who at 5 years of age is a huge ram with mass and scale.  He is sired by "Jack of Diamonds", the Reserve Grand Champion Ram at the Nugget in 2011.   Grandsire and great grandsire were "Yukon Jack" and "COBRA RR" of Luxford heritage, stud rams that are still making an impact on the breed through their offspring and maternal grandsire was "Great Divide", who in my opinion was a stud's stud and one of the best rams we've ever used.  His paternal grandmother was "TomBoy", a stud ewe and a Great Divide daughter, who was one of the most impactful ewes we have ever raised, along with her own dam, "Dottie", Prairie Rose 509.  His dam, Prairie Rose 1111 is a great maternal ewe and granddaughter to the Reserve Grand Champion Ewe at the 2002 Top of the Rockies as well as a granddaughter to Luxford 1230A and "Gun Fighter" who was sired by "Gunslinger".   A well rounded pedigree in this buck that should work.    If you need to clean up toplines, add a hip and level out the dock this guy can help.  More photos and information available upon request.  We can arrange transportation to Sedalia for pick-up.

"RAM TUFF"

PRAIRIE ROSE 4606-7    RR/NN

DOB:   1/06/14     TWIN

 

SIRE:  "TUFF ENUF", LUXFORD 1407

DAM:  PRAIRIE ROSE 660 

 

"R.T." is a big ol' boy.  He's a beefy ram with mass and meat in him.  His genetics go back to some of our old tried and true lines that are easy keepers, have ability to flesh up and keep on normal feeds such as grass and forbs.   He has excellent length with a long, flat hip.  He has depth and spring of rib as well.... product with definite eye appeal.  He is blessed with good width of chest without being rough or open shouldered.  Excellent bone with a big foot. Love his head too.  Longevity by the train load through his dam's side.  He has an interesting pedigree to boot.  His sire, "Tuff Enuf" is sired by High Point 3106 who was sired by "Famous Frank" who sired the 2013 Champion Ram at Louisville.   His dam is an old "Burlington Northern" daughter (Great Divide g-daughter), the ram we sold for $8,500 at the Nugget in Reno in 2006.  We used him on 18 ewes last fall and are extremely pleased with his lamb crop and I've already got several in my mind to keep back and grow out.  He sires them long, straight with bone and meat while maintaining smoothness and breed character.  I'm on the fence about selling him since I really like his lambs but I'm not sure I really need 5 rams on the breeding docket this year.  Therefore, I am offering him for sale private treaty.  He was rough shorn in May.  Transportation for pick-up in Sedalia can be arranged.
