TJY1 Road Rage 6-3
(Open Road x [Classic Steal x Open Road's Mother])
Dam is the mother of the Champion Chester gilt at the 2011 Oklahoma Youth Expo shown by the Rogers Family of Calera, OK, and the Reserve Chester Barrow 2011 Illinois State Fair shown by the Stoller Family of El Paso, IL!

BOX7 Crazy Train 4-1
(Caboose x [Nulook x Sweet Look and Nulook's mother] x Blockbuster)
Crazy Train is one of the most unique mature Hampshire boars you will see! His pedigree is absolutely stacked! He is one of the few direct sons of Caboose (the grandsire on both sides of Huggy Bear), and has the old SNM Cicada sow (a Blockbuster daughter) on the top side. The bottom side of his pedigree offers 2 shots of Sweet Look and Nulook's mother, and Larry Box's 8 year old generating Blockbuster sow. His maternal grandmother (Box's Blockbuster sow) was the dam of the Champion Hampshire gilt and Grand Overall at the Oklahoma Youth Expo that sells for $10,000 to Ottenwalter! He is a medium framed boar that is average plus length of body. His blade and forearm are big, his chest is huge, and he is extremely square at his knee and front foot. His ribcage is bold and deep and he has great thickness throughout. Maybe one of the most impressive parts is his build and skeleton. The slope to his shoulder and cushion to his knee is great, he has the right angle and flex to his hock and the set to his lower joints is impeccable! All the while he is a tall shouldered, loose spined boar that can flat float at almost 4 years of age! It has been a great pleasure getting this one to Findlay, IL. Owned in partnership with the Genter Family, OH., and the Hines Family, MI. This one is gonna get a great chance, seeing heavy use here and at the Hines' (Just exposed the mother of Hinesite and Gold Standard! ALL ABOARD THE CRAZY TRAIN! *Limited Semen Available...Call Yantis for details*
