What can you say about Hemingway's Bogart other than he is renowned, WAS a one of a kind potent herdsire. Bogie's EPDs rival the best in the world. Bogart could challenge any young stud head to head for histogram results. After 18 years, his longevity is exemplary with his 2019 histogram at 22 AFD and an SD of 4.0 and CV of 17. Bogart is the direct descendant and on of Sire MSA Hemingway G171.

We are very proud to have added this Hemingway son, to our small but genetically mighty white ...

Bidding Info


This is a promising young male. Yes, he is only a yearling and sheared 9.2 pounds of fiber, but he could be used as a premier fiber male as a result of his father genetics. Or, he would make a stud for small breeder. You can buy this boy for a fair price given his young age for either uses. We will guarantee his ability to breed and potency with his purchase. This boy is covered in fiber from head to toe, the quality of fiber is exceptional. His EPDs are improved over the national norm for most traits, but he does have an outstanding EPD for staple length and fiber weight, both incredibly important fiber traits. For those farms who do not depend on EPDs he would make a great herdsire given his father's notorious density, fineness and longevity of fineness. His mother has produced incredible offspring with gorgeous fiber, but she does not produce the EPDs we include in our pricing strategy. In other words, he could make any ranch a great herdsire. Pharoah's testicles are quite large, and when shown as a juvenile, judges commented on their size. Pheromone, his dam, definitely produces males with this added quality.

Pharoah has some of the most beautiful fiber on the ranch. Pharoah's histogram is also super. His AFD for 2014 is 21 with SL at 98, and comfort factor of 95%. All more than respectable fiber statistics. His fiber coverage is absolute, his fiber is fine and crimpy with gorgeous sheen, architecture and bundling. His phenotype is beautiful and his conformation is nearly square. His bite is perfect and so he truly has it all in his phenotype and genetics. All EPD fiber trait values are well improved over the national herd. He will definitely improve his offspring in every fiber character traits. Pharoah simply does not have the world class EPD's that we would promote for offspring improvement in one generation. If he had been born a female he would have made a great foundation dam with his staple length EPD. Contact us for any questions. He could make a good pairing with a dam with EPDs for fineness.
