The females are the foundation of any good breeding program and we have striven to build consistent quality throughout our ewe flock. However, as in any flock, we have a few standouts that represent what we have been trying to achieve. Below is a sample of those outstanding ewes.

 

"Aris"

Pagliaro-Bohan 209
Timber X Monster

Stud ewe right here! Sired by Timber, an Enigma son, out "Cookies," ExGame's dam, who was an impressive show ewe in her own right. Aris is a genetic goldmine and her phenotype is impeccable. We have high expectations that this ewe will influence our program for years to come.

Show Wins

Champion Market Lamb - Surf 'N Turf
Reserve Champion Heavyweight Wether Dam - Pacific International Livestock Expo

 


 

"Starfire"

Emsoff 618
Maximus X Timber

This ewe was supposed to be our ram. We bought her dam, Aris, specifically in hopes of getting a keeper ram from Maximus. We unfortunately didn't get the ram we were hoping for before we lost Maximus but we did get Starfire and is she ever a dandy. From the moment she hit the ground we knew she was going to be special. She was born with a groove from the base of her skull all the way to her dock. As she matured, it became clear that she was not only going to have muscle, she was also going to have that absolutely impecible structural correctness that is so hard to find in one with that much shape. As her show carrer progressed, winning multiple classes and two supreme champion titles, it has been confirmed that Starfire is indeed something unique.

"Nicewonger Ewe"

Compromise X Miller Lite

This ewe has been a foundation ewe in our flock. She has dammed three stud rams and we have retained every daughter she's ever produced. She was the beginning our focus on the Composure line. She was perhaps a bit ahead of her time when we bought her in 2010, being moderate, huge ribbed and shaggy, but today she's exactly what the industry is looking for. She continues to make an impact on our flock today.
