He offers us some outcross blood, but most important the same reason we like him as a potential boar is the same reason you should love him as a potential show barrow... HECK! HE'S JUST DARN GOOD! He's square as can be! He's tall fronted with a great look to him! He's level front to rear and balances up like one should!

Sire of Dam: Priceless
Description: WE LOVE HIM!! ABSOLUTELY LOVE HIM!! Sure, he's solid black, he wont class Hampshire adn we know some won't feed solid black, yet they better hope they don't have to beat this solid black one!! He is a MAN EATER! Nope, not in the sense that he over powers you with his muscle and width, but in the sense that he is going to be unbeatable down the road once he does what he Bears do! He is huge legged, and probably has the best hip adn hind leg set in the whole deal! Give me hip like this one and we'll make a show barrow that can win! He is tall fronted and great headed! yet, still with some skull and mass between his eyes! If you're serious about winning, you should have 6-4 really high!

Description:: LOVE THIS ONE!!! There are a handful of these young Bear barrows that have us flat out fired up about show barrows!!! We know you can show Bears at a little older age than some of our other genetics, so we think a barrow like this should be looked at for Tulsa, Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana, American Royal, and possibly even the NAILE!!! He is built right! He is square to the ground and has extremely heavy skeleton!!! This one CAN WIN!!!
