Barnes Farms Genetics 3048
DOB 2-6-2013 TW QRNN
A modern Tunis foundation female! 4048 is a correct, long bodied, stout made ewe with beautiful Tunis breed character. Her dam BFG 6022 is the mother of our premier stud ram. Walk Thru. He sired BFG 5087 “Show Girl”, Champion ewe at the 2010 NAILE for Eric Irvine and also sired BFG 5710 “Big Ten”, used by BWB Farm, S & T Tunis and now Cass Hollow Tunis. To continue this line, we are retaining 4048’s twin brother at stud. We have sold 2/3 interest to Jet Tunis and Scarlet & Gray Farm. Watch for this ram in the future. A great opportunity to buy winning genetics!

BFL 3029: The Dog Funk lineage will build powerful, muscular, heavy structured sheep. It pains me to think what we are giving up in her future progeny. She was 5th in a big ewe lamb class at the Ohio State Fair last summer. 3029 is big bodied and yet maternal and so correct in her structure. Mark my word, this female will prove a valuable asset to her new owner.
BFL3033 has all the right pieces to strut on center stage. She has a huge top and loin that is extremely square, but she also extends lots of muscle shape down her leg. We showed her last summer in one of those big ewe lamb classes at the Ohio State Fair. The BF 1070 ram was the thickest and deepest made grandson of Dog Funk we have used. We are keeping two daughters and Mark McCabe has a nice set of yearling ewes sired by him. This one is hard to part with!
@ Great Lakes Sale - May 24-25, 2014 at Wooster, Ohio
Lot 3 sub - BFG 3076
As we continue to breed productive and functional Tunis that can be competitive in the showring, this is a special female. Her hide, balance, and muscle shape will make her a shrowring favorite shown slicked or fitted! We are keeping her twin sister in the flock, and as a bonus, BFG 5649 had another set of twin ewe lambs this spring. If you continue to struggle with the time and money needed to show your sheep custom fitted, check out the possibilities this ewe would present in your show flock.
BFG 3048 is the ewe in the major part of the video. The other ewe is BFG 3076 our entry in the National Tunis Sale.
Lot 4 - BFL 4007
Check out the pedigree on this ewe! Triple S 529 was two time National Champion Ram. We have had semen in the tank for several years and this seemed like the time to use it. Notice 529 is also the grandsire of 4007’s mother. This ewe lamb is long and thick with great color. A “must have” genetic piece for any Tunis breeder!
Remember we are always seeking youth of all ages who are interested in exhibiting Shropshire or Tunis ewe lambs and/or yearling ewes at all levels of competition.
