"SWAGGER"  A.K.A.  "MR. BIG"

  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:  2/12/14      TWIN

 

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

DAM:   PRAIRIE ROSE 1111 

 

       Strong and athletic, this well built, straight made ram is correct throughout with a good topline and tailhead.  He's balanced as well.  He appears trim but actually handles quite well over his top with width and thickness.  He is sired by "Jack of Diamonds", the 2011 Reserve Grand Champion Ram here at the Nugget. His sire, who is now over 5 years of age has put some outstanding progeny on the ground for us.  Grandsire and great grandsire were "Yukon Jack" and "COBRA RR" of Luxford heritage.  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.   A well rounded pedigree in this buck that should work.  Top photo taken in early April.  Still has his baby teeth with gas left in the tank.  He's entered in Reno but also FOR SALE private treaty.

"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 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.  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 considering offering him FOR SALE Private Treaty.  Yes, yes, I know he's not cut-out yet due to equipment malfunction but I should be getting my clippers back this week sometime from Premier.  Free Delivery to Reno or points along the way.  Keep checking back for updated pictures of R.T.   Photo was taken in January of this year.     

 

 

Pictured here at 10 months of age, this "Jack of Diamonds" son is a big bodied fellow with the excellent top, hip and width of his sire.  His dam, "Big Betty", produced our Reserve Grand Champion Ram at the Nugget in Reno in 2014 and had a stellar set of triplets this year that are proving out to be in the top end of our lamb crop.    This fellow has a stacked pedigree.  UPDATE:  SOLD!!!!  Heading to Pennsylvania

"BELLE"

PRAIRIE ROSE 1449

RR/NN

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.

"LITTLE MISS SUMPIN'"

PRAIRIE ROSE 1451

QR/NN

DOB:  2/12/14      TWIN 

 

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.    

 We will be updating this page a few days prior to Reno Week with new photos, time and weather allowing.  Please check back often!
