We feel very fortunate to have been able to purchase Power Play from Able Acres. Babies sired by him will begin hitting the ground mid winter and we'res anxious to see what they will look like. We don't normally show bucks, but we did take Power Play to a couple of shows.

We purchased bABY fACE from 2M Boer Goats (Paul & Kim Morgan) at the 2011 Headliner Sale. The cross between him and the does we have used him on has been very good. Several of the does we sold on this year's fall Tri-State Sale were bred to bABY fACE. Live coverage and flush coverage are available.
Lewis Creek "Sting" *ennobled* ABGA Reg # 10367359
Total Points: 484 Passed Inspection: 2007 DOB: January 6, 2007
We leased Sting from Paul Kinslow and Greg Patterson for the 2011 breeding seasion. He has added width of body, depth and thickness to to the hindquarters of our new kid crops. We liked him so well that we went ahead and bought him even though he was an older buck. Several of the bred does we sold this fall were bred to "Sting."
Tailor Made is a Some Body son, that we bought from Lary Duncan (Able Acres). He did well in the show ring - Grand Junior Full Blood Buck twice, and Reserve Overall Full Blood Buck. He is co-owned with Nathan Duncan, R1 Boer Goats, and Thornridge Boer Goats.
Maestro (our Status Quo son) was very successful in the 2010 show ring - Grand Champion Overall at Henry Co Fair in Illinois (both shows), and at two of the Indiana Boer Goat Classic shows. In all he was Reserve Champion Full Blood Buck five times. He produced competitive wethers as well as show does, but his does were some of the most beautiful does we've seen. He was co-owned with Nathan Duncan. We sold Maestro in 2012 after using him for three years.

Hummer is the result of breeding one of our does to Mike Kelly's 901. That mating produced a pair of twins, we kept Hummer and Mike kept Smoke Stack. Hummer has been our main wether producer, but he has also produced many champion percentage and pureblood does. We have sold very few of his daughters. In 2011 we sent Hummer to Mike Kelly and brought back Curly. We bred several of Hummer's daughters to Curly. Those 2012 wethers were very competitive and sold well.
Downen T138 "Boilermaker" ABGA Reg # 10316038 Total Points: 154 Not Inspected
We were very fortunate to be able to buy Boilermaker from Ewing Downen in 2006. He won his class one Indiana Boer Goat Classic show and was Reserve Champion Junior Buck at another in 2006. He was Reserve Grand Champion Buck at the 2006 IL State Fair and won his class at the 2006 IN State Fair. He was Grand Champion Overall Buck at the 2006 KY State Fair, where the judge described him as the best Boer buck he'd seen, and he was also Grand Champion Overall at the Online Goat Show at boergoats.com. He was Reserve Champion Yearling Buck at the 2006 North American International Livestock Expo (NAILE). We only showed Boilermaker a couple of times in 2007. He was Grand Champion Overall Buck at both Tri State Boer Genetics shows that year.
Boilermaker has been our most prolific show stock producer. He has had many daughters, granddaughters and great granddaughters show as champions and reserve champions. Surprisingly, he also produced several champion and reserve champion wethers.
We added Bo Howdy bloodlines to our breeding program with the purchase of Bo Vision in 2005. Bo Vision was very successful in the show ring and a top producer of wethers as well as one of our top producers of show does. His kids are flashy, but still complete and breed standard correct, as are all of our stock. He produced many champions, including both the 2007 and 2009 Indiana State Fair Grand Champion Wethers.
Bo Vision was Reserve Champion Junior Buck at the 2005 IL State Fair, and 2nd in class at both the 2005 KY and IN State Fairs. He was 3rd in his class at the 2005 North American International Livestock Expo (NAILE) against a very competitive group of Boer bucks. He was used heavily from then on and not shown again. Bo Vision was sold to R1 Boer Goats in 2008.

Progeny Points: _63
We bought Bo Buck, another Bo Howdy son in 2006. While we hadn't planned on showing him we took him to one show at the Indiana Boer Goat Classic that year where he won his class and was Reserve Champion Junior Buck. Bo Buck threw lots of color and produced many eye-catching show does and wethers who did well in the show ring. He also produced champions for our customers. We sold Bo Buck to Miller Boer Goats in 2008 after using him for two years.
We were very fortunate to be able to buy this 7 year old frozen embryo from Ewing Dowen. We wanted some more of the old bloodlines and Sport, who was a double-bred Ubora **ennobled** along with Lobola SA *ennobled* on his dam side, was the perfect buck for what we wanted. We believe that Sport wasa one of the finest Boer buck we have ever found.
Sport was described as the "perfect Boer buck" by three different judges, including John Edwards. He was Grand Champion Overall Buck at the 2005 North American International LIvestock Expo (NAILE). He wasGrand Champion Junior Buck at the 2005 Illinois State Fair, and Grand Champion Overall Boer Buck at the 2005 Kentucky State Fair. Sport never placed less than division champion in every show he attended. We lost Sport before we could use him as heavily as we had wanted, but we have a group of Sport offspring in our breeding program.
SAFD "Mo Sport"
ABGA Reg # 10330034
DOB January 26, 2006
SAFD Mo Sport was the only Sport buck kid we kept. We showed him for one seasion and he was third in his class at the IL State Fair, and fourth in his class at both the IN State and KY State fairs. Because we didn't want to get too lined up, we used himi on a small group of our does and then sold him to one of our customers.
FSE 3211 "Proto Type" ABGA # 10212771
Total Points: 78
We bought half interest in ProtoType from Lary Duncan in 2004. We fell in love with ProtoType when he was a baby. He was the 2004 IN Statse Fair Grand Champion Overall Buck, and was the Reserve Champion Junior Buck at the 2004 North American International Livestock Expo (NAILE). ProtoType produced several show does for us and we have kept a core group of ProtoType daughters and their offspring in our brood doe group and once we had enough daughters, we sold our interest in him to JAE Boer Goats and King Boer Goats in 2005.
