A BIG THANKS GOES TO REPEAT BUYERS, JOHN AND ANITA PHILLIPS, J & A PHILLIPS RANCH, PAUL, IDAHO, FOR PURCHASING THIS
STOUT FELLOW!!! HE IS A PATERNAL HALF BROTHER TO OUR CHAMPION RAM.
Pleasant Valley 1145 RR
Dam: "Danika", Prairie Rose 605
A bold, sizeable ram with mass, depth of
rib, decent bone and big wide hip. Watching him move about the pasture, we're thinking we should've called this buck "Hell
for Stout", because that's exactly what he is. He is solidly stout and yet has a nice pattern to him, a good, clean front
end and an overall attractiveness to him. He is sired by "LAWMAN", the Pleasant Valley stud we brought into the
flock in 2007 as an outcross for our Luxford bred ewes. "LAWMAN" was Champion Ram at the '07 Northwest Sheep Show
and Sale. He comes from the notable sire line of "Gun Fighter", "Gun Slinger" and BYU's well known stud,
"The Great One". His paternal g-grandsire was BYU 32LO, "Triton". His dam, "Danika", Prairie
Rose 605 is a big, productive female who's sire is "Great Divide", Luxford 1131. A powerful combination of substance,
rugged good looks and impressive pedigree.

Mountain", Prairie Rose 8617-1
Sire: "LAWMAN", Pleasant Valley 1145 RR
Dam: Prairie Rose 617 QR
Named after one of the largest peaks in Montana, this impressive ram has had a commanding presence since he was born.
He is pure power! Dimensionally massive, deep bodied, naturally thick with spring of rib, excellent bone & length of body.
Straight out of the lambing jug in 08, he was our top gaining lamb and just never quit. With the demand for more body and
substance in today's Suffolk buck, this fellow fills the bill and then some. 8617-7 of course, is sired by "LAWMAN, the
stud described in the above post and dammed by a very big gal, that is a "Great Divide" daughter. His great grandfather
on the maternal side is "Bridger Gold", our first true stud whose roots run deep within our ewe base. 'Bridger'
boasted Jack Larson and old Luxford bloodlines via Pleasant Valley and on any given day he stood a stout 40 x 40 and weighed
in at 450 lbs. of solid buck. "Big Mountain" is not to be confused with either small nor medium.
4TH PLACE YEARLING RAM, CLASS 2
A BIG THANKS GOES TO
THREE BARS LIVESTOCK, NEVADA, FOR PURCHASING THIS YOUNG RR/NN STUD DURING RENO! HE IS A VERY BALANCED INDIVIDUAL!
Sire: "Locomotive", Prairie Rose 7511-2
Dam: Prairie Rose 529
A true gentleman
our youngest ram, "Gent" is a very handsome young stud who reminds us somewhat of our Reserve Grand Champion Ram
last year at the Nugget All American. He's a very eye appealing ram with a super pattern to him but his boyish good looks
aren't all there is to this impressive young ram. This ram also handles in a big way. He's also a very balanced fellow that
exhibits some good extension, soundness throughout and smooth muscling. I've liked this buck since he was a lamb and he continues
to garner my admiration and the attention of those who have stopped in at the ranch lately to look at the sheep. His sire
was our 3rd place, Class 1 yearling last year at Reno and "Great Divide", Luxford 1131 is his paternal grandfather.
His maternal grandmother was our Reserve Grand Champion Ewe at the 2002 Top of the Rockies and her sire "Maverick",
Pleasant Valley 801 (a Luxford "Big Easy" son) was 2nd in his class behind the champion ram at the Top of the Rockies
This is just a dandy of a ram!
BIG THANKS GOES TO REPEAT BUYERS, JOHN & ANITA, J & A PHILLIPS RANCH, IDAHO FOR ADDING THIS SUBSTANTIALLY MADE RAM
TO THEIR STUD BATTERY! HE IS A PATERNAL HALF BROTHER TO OUR GRAND CHAMPION RAM!
"LAWMAN", Pleasant Valley 1145RR
Dam: Prairie Rose 616
"Wrangler" is another robust son
of LAWMAN who has quite a substantial build. Big topped, big hipped, with a high degree of easy fleshing. He stands wide out
over the hip and has an extra shot of length. Commendable bone to go with a good set of feet and legs. "Wrangler's"
maternal grandmother is Prairie Rose 507, the ewe who dammed "Mule Train", the buck we sold at Reno in '07 for $3,500.
"Wrangler's" dam, Prairie Rose 616 is a real workhorse in the flock and her full twin sister dammed "Long Range",
the buck Don McCormick leased from us in '07 and who sired Syringa's 1st place Jan. ram lamb at Reno last year.
Rose 616 is a "Great Divide" daughter. "Great Divide" has the propensity to sire champions, class winners
and top end sheep! For more information regarding "Great Divide" please check him out on our Stud Page.
