An online offering of elite hampshire genetics April 26/27/28


We are excited this year to present the 3rd edition of the Spoonster’s Generation NEXT Sale. We again are incredibly pleased with the quality we are offering in this year’s sale. We dug deep into our program and are offering the very best in terms of genetic potential. I believe the sheep have that “modern” Hampshire look that will be very competitive in the show ring, yet will have all the tools to go on and be a stud ram or a foundation brood ewe in your flock. This year Schrock Hamps, IL, are back again as guest consignors and we are pleased to welcome Livermore Hampshires, IL, Newland Hampshires, KS and Mercedes Ladies, MN, as new consignors this year. These programs have had some great success over the past few years and are offering a solid set of sheep. The American Hampshire Sheep Association futurity program has proved to be beneficial in connecting youth with Hampshire sheep, and again this year the ewe lambs in this sale will be nominated for the ASHA Futurity Program. Last year, Spoonster 12-03 (Lot 3) went on to be named Reserve Champion Ewe of the 2012 MO State Fair Jr. Show. She was purchased by the James Hale Family of Missouri. Hearing these success stories and helping youth and new families get their start in Hampshire sheep is what fuels the Spoonster program! Please enjoy the catalog and if you have any questions about the offering, please contact us or any of the other consignors. We’d love to hear from you and assist in any way possible! Again, Jessica and I thank you for your interest and it is with great honor we say, at Spoonster Hampshires “you’re not just purchasing a sheep, you’re purchasing part of our program.”

We know “Unleashed” is the ram that built Plaza Hamps. Countless numbers of eat sheep trace back to him and he has truly proven himself as one of the eatest in the breed. This buck lamb is no exception. He is ultra level in his sign, wide in his hip and pins, yet still stays neat fronted and big ribbed. His m, BB-35 is a true stud ewe. Her influence is all over this offering. Be sure to dy the potential this stud ram prospect brings to the table!

These past high-selling ewe lambs from our 2011 and 2012 Generation NEXT Sales are maternal sisters to Lot 4. Both of these females had successful show careers for the Pinkney and Hale Families.


Lot 4 is a Generation NEXT Sale Legacy! That’s right, the Lambert 06-08 ewe has This buck is stout! If you need to add bone, breed type and just overall body and dimension, take a look at this guy. His dam has proven herself to be a stud ewe. In daughter, who sold in our first sale, placed 2nd in the AHSA Ewe Lamb Futurity an produced a set of quad ewe lambs, two of which were Lots 1 and 3 who went on selling ewe lambs. This buck will follow suit. He combines the breed type, mass an his sire, Splash, yet stays cool fronted and extended from his dam. Use him as a sh a stud buck, he’s got the resume to succeed in both!

Here is your chance to get in on the ground floor, but hold on tight, because this sweet, young ewe lamb is on the rise! This is the oldest and first daughter of our young stud, “Ringleader,” to be offered for sale. We only had a few ewes bred to him, before he needed to get shined up for Louisville, but after seeing the small sampling of lambs by him this year, he will breed more ewes. The upside potential to this ewe lamb is monumental! She’s complete, wooly, big-boned and as a bonus, she falls into the later class splits. Oh yeah, one more thing, her grand dam is our great donor ewe, BB-35.

The future is pretty bright for this young Splash sired ewe lamb. I recommend wearing a trendy pair of shades while you study her. Yup, it’s that bright. Remember the set of quads the Lambert 06-08 ewe had last year by the 2010 National Champion Ram, Strategy? Well, we kept two of them and put them to work, and holy moly did they work. The extension, the length of body, the percentage of hind saddle in this sheep is simply remarkable. But not only does she exhibit all the evidence of growth, she remains as sound as a cat and as balanced as you can make one. Trust me, her pedigree will spark your interest, but her phenotype will keep you hooked!

Just like the 1302 (Lot 11) ewe lamb in this sale, he has a lot of mass and natural thickness without sacrificing size and style. This is one of the most complete sheep that we have raised and we are glad to offer him in this sale. The 1035 ewe is a maternal sister to our Res. Ram at the MWSRS and Res. Ram at WI St. Fair. Selling half Interest, buyer gets possession.


Unique opportunity here, check out this “fitted lamb” that didn’t have to be fit. If you have ever wanted to inject the correctness, pattern, and muscle shape of the wether-type sheep into your fitted sheep, here’s your chance. These lambs are what I call “hybrid” lambs because they are out of fitted ewes bred to the Authentic Son. Make sure to stop by the farm to look at this one, he’s correct, good in his lines, round ribbed, and still has a lot of growth potential. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to add some correctness and thickness to your fitted ewes. Offering half interest, buyer gets possession.

We haven’t offered very many of the Authentic Son x “fitted ewes” daughters to buyers. For this sale, we decided to let one go. To us, there is a lot of value in the pattern, correctness, and balance that the Authentic Son added to our fitted ewes. His lambs are straight in behind the shoulder, great in their loin, and level in their hips. Imagine what she can do for your flock as a brood ewe. We will be keeping a lot of ewe lambs out of this cross, they will be great ewes to build on. Please contact Brad (309-369-7173) if you have interest in purchasing other lambs out of this cross.

Opportunity knocks with this ewe lamb. The combination of the Authentic genetics crossed on the Hands On daughters (Masterpiece Genetics) has produced great results. We have some nice wethers that will be getting shown this summer out of this type of cross and this ewe certainly brings a lot of value to the table. She is the longest bodied, biggest topped ewe we had this year. She is very good on the profile and is very round ribbed. Take her and breed her to a ram with a big massive hip and you will have wethers that can compete anywhere. Crossbred.

This ewe is simply a good sheep. It’s real difficult to find a hole in a sheep like this. As you study her pedigree, she combines genetics from many proven programs. If you are looking to add a complete sheep to your flock, check out this one. She’s the kind that has all the potential to raise you a great show sheep next year.

Here is a very correct, very balanced female. This ewe is the kind that is super level down her top, and very attractive from the profile. She is the type of sheep that can be shown slick sheared or fitted. Her dam, Land Run 174, was the 2010 Junior Champion Ewe at the Midwest Stud Ram Sale.

This ewe is super young, and still has her baby teeth. Again, this is the kind of ewe that can go on and work for you. She is super sound, very balanced and has plenty of breed type. If you are in the market for solid Hampshire females, backed by powerful genetics and outstanding pedigrees, then look no further! She has all the potential to go on and make you an exciting show prospect next year!
