Bentley's Blitz

Below is Bentley's Blitz - sire, grand sire, and great grand sire to many of our current breeding ewes. Blitz was born at Bentley farm in 2006 and used as a sire for 6 years.  He has gone to a new home in Tolar, Texas where the ewes aren't so related to him. Visit his page, by clicking Blitz link above.

Bentley farm is located in Decatur, Texas. We have been perfecting our painted desert hair sheep for loud color, fast growing horns, worm resistance, large build, and a docile personality since the mid 1990's.   We registered our first sheep with the Painted Desert Sheep Society in 2003 (click on logo to visit the PDDS).  We are also a charter member of United Horned Hair Sheep Association (click on logo to visit UHHSA).  Our goal has been to raise sheep that stay fat and healthy on pasture alone with as little interference from man as possible.  

     Our current sire is Bentley's Tank.  He is a really big guy (measures 34 inches tall at the withers) with a sweet nature.  He was an inch over gold medal horn status at 25 months old (with over 11 inch bases). Even though he is not loudly marked, he is throwing nicely colored lambs that grow like weeds. 
Some of Tank's lambs are pictured below and left. As of 2015, Tank has sired over 200 lambs, all black and white paints. We believe Tank is a true homozygous black and white ram.

Tank Update

We measured Tank again on his 3rd birthday (12-7-2012) and his total score was 103 and 1/2.  Pictured below on his 3rd birthday.

Bentleyfarm uses guard llamas and will be breeding them in the near future to sell offspring as guards. Below are 3 of our new breeding females.
