MATURE EWES- -


Now they are sheared--


 
CAPTAIN MORGAN 
Sire:  C-4 (Edelen)  
Dam:  Cobalt (Crego) 

DNA:  RRNN
  
Introducing Captain Morgan. Our keeper buck of 2015! Out of a consistent and strong producing ewe, from the start we felt that he was the best we have ever raised. So correct in his design and structure, well balanced with an overall amount of power and muscle, and stands so square on his feet and legs with plenty of bone and shag.  He has an overwhelming amount of shape--wide over the loin edge, level down the back, massive square hip, and expressively muscled from his big top to his deep lower leg. A complete package that is an excellent combination of power, muscle, shape, and eye appeal that we feel will produce great handling lambs for the show ring or quality breeding stock.
 
DIAMOND JACK
Sire: Superman (son of Two-Eyed Jack---McIlrath) 
Dam:  CB (McIlrath) 

DNA:  RRNN
  
Introducing Diamond Jack.  Purchased on the McIlrath Online Production Sale in May of 2015 in partnership with Hickman Club Lambs.  Bred with quality genetics and is right for the time with shaggy stout legs and feet, and width from his big top to his square hip.  Bold in his muscle expression across the loin edge and down into a deep lower leg. An overwhelming amount of shape that makes him fluid on the move and creates eye appeal.  A complete and correct package with an overall balance of power, muscle, shape, and look that we feel will produce great show lambs or excellent breeding stock
