Sunshine & Whiskey Fame monster x no fare x perfect remedy x black attack
Dam is a full sister to No Mercy.
Sunshine has been our absolute favorite boar prospect ever farrowed in Colusa. We used Fame Monster hard for spring 2014 litters to make some replacement females with the right build and a superior pedigree, though we never anticipated we would make a boar this incredible. Sunshine and Whiskey is the product of line breeding our very best young sow. His pedigree contains no Big Shot or Hillbilly Bone and very little Warfare. There are several direct shots of Super 7 and Super Monster up close in his pedigree. We have retained over a dozen daughters of his maternal grandmother, Perfect Remedy 4-8, and she continues to build our herd with every litter. Phenotypically, Sunshine is the most agile and impeccably structured boar we have seen in recent years. He handles his hip and rear leg as perfect as anything you will find. His bones are enormous, his joints are flat and clean, and he is strong pasterned. Yet, he is a muscle hog. He's extra stout through his forearm, shoulder blade, and upper rib and he has tremendous dimension and shape to his back. He does all of this and still maintains a KILLER look with the most cocky, upheaded attitude of any boar we have raised. He will breed lots and lots of sows here in Colusa!

Scared Straight Main event (warfare x detox x supernatural's sister) -- lego's mom
For the first time ever here at Ottenwalter Show Pigs, we left one home that we know would have really rung a bell had he been shown at Belton! With the growing uncertainty in the show pig industry this spring regarding PEDV and those associated concerns about buying semen and the market for boars, we knew keeping this guy here at home would be a great move. We absolutely LOVE this guy and we can't wait to start breeding sows to him! He's out of the best litter we farrowed last fall, with littermate barrows topping our October sale and selling to great feeders in the southwest. One of his littermate barrows was recently named Champion Berk at the LSU State Show, shown by the Doise family. More importantly, his momma is the great 73-6 sow who continues to prove herself among our very elite females. She raised the $60,000 Lego boar we sold at Indiana State Fair last year to Hi Point, and her spring Untouchable litter of blue pigs is mouth watering. Her dam was the 1-2 (Detox x Superman x Super 7) sow that raised the $75,000 Shooter and $27,000 California Kid boar we sold at Indiana two summers ago. Scared Straight is a moderate farmed, huge bodied boar that runs uphill from the profile and is perfectly square in the way he comes to the ground, both front and rear. He's extremely agile and ideally structured for such a massive beast. He will sire a large portion of our fall 2014 litters!

Peter Dragon Fame Monster x Shooter x Perfect Remedy x Black Attack
Peter Dragon is a boar that has gone largely under the radar here in our program. He was a part of our Indiana State Fair 2014 set, until a swollen lymph gland took him out of the running as a potential entry for us. However, he was bar none our absolute favorite of the set. He has been in our boar barn since August eating 5 lbs of sow feed a day with no TLC whatsoever. His gland has totally disappeared, and we have bred him to several key females because we know what he can do! He has an impeccable skeleton and his feet and toes are perfect. The way he handles his hip and his rear leg is absolutely ideal, and that ever so important trait comes with two big bonuses: 1) He is big and square through his chest floor and 2) He is heavy muscled, big topped, and shapely. As an added bonus, he is a linebred Super 7 with no Big Shot or Warfare anywhere in his pedigree. His maternal grandma is our great 4-8 (Perfect Remedy x Black Attack) sow -- the dam of No Mercy, and she has over a dozen daughters working within our herd.
Bear Money Bear x Super Monster x Vintage
Purchased from Tom Nasser and Bred by Final Drive Genetics
Special thanks to our friend Tom Nasser in Arizona for letting us bring this rascal to Colusa and try him on some elite females! When Tom told us about this boar, we were instantly intrigued by his pedigree -- for anyone that hasn't noticed, Bear has been flat getting the job done on every level. Aside from winning major barrow shows, Bear sons and daughters are contributing at the highest level within the Cobb program. But it gets better yet -- Bear Money's momma (blue sow pictured below) is a Super Monster x Vintage female direct from Cobb's who was a multiple-time Grand and Reserve overall on the IJSC show circuit in Indiana. We think Bear Money is made just like daddy! He is moderate framed, extremely stout featured, and awesome through his center body. His squareness from every angle you view him is outstanding and he is made to produce hogs that can flat get the job done -- in the show ring and out. The pedigree and genetic predictability cannot get much better! We will be utilizing this guy quite a bit as we mate sows this summer and fall!

Lexion Swagger x (Triple Bar 7 x Batman x Super 7)
Purchased from RW Genetics
Lexion is a boar that brings many unique pieces to the puzzle for us. We believe the front one-third of this guy is as good as it could possibly get. He has a huge chest that is perfectly square, a monstrous forearm and shoulder blade, and his center rib shape is ideal. The pedigree behind this one offers many great individuals that we are excited to stack into some of the genetics we are working with. Lexion is going to breed some key females this summer and make a VERY positive contribution to our herd!
Mammoth x Full Dimension
Over the past three years, we have produced multiple champion and high-selling pigs sired by Ice Age. When Ben Moyer called and asked us if we had interest in purchasing Ice Age, it was a no-brainer! Everybody that sees him in person at the farm agrees he is the heaviest boned animal they have ever seen! On top of this, he sires great designed, level made, extra good structured pigs that feed and grow really well! He is being used heavily on our belted cross sows to make killer blues and replacement females.
In addition to our herd sires, 2015 Fall/Winter litters will be available from the following sires:
