Here is a thick made heifer with a RARE genetic package. BTTR Bonsai is wide, square, and has all the makings to be your next best producer. She is sired by Top Gun I of Mapleview, an extraordinary old-school bull that had a great career. "Top Gun" is sired by Ruger of Mapleview, (Multiple Grand Champion Tittle's) and out of Finola of Dirtaine (Won Best-In-Show twice at the NWSS) Bonsai's grandsire, Scott of Craycombe, was also a 5-Time Champion Bull in Great Britain. On her dam's side, HVF Lady Marcy sports legendary genetics from Drover Hills being sired by DH Dalton, who is a son of Gilchrist's Kodiak, the 1996 NWSS Grand Champion Bull. Bonsai has an easy going demeanor and a hard to come by genetic package. This is one you will not want to miss out on.

BTTR Pecan is a full sibling and out of the same flush as BTTR Bonsai (also selling in this sale) This heifer is deep bodied and has great movement to her. Sired by Top Gun I of Mapleview (Who has only had a dozen calves registered in the AHCA herdbook in the last 20 years) Mapleview's Cattle ate up the show ring in the 80's and 90's, taking home multiple Grand Champion and Best-In-Show tittles. Every generation of "Top Gun's" pedigree has had success in the show ring throughout the U.S AND Great Britain. Pecan could easily be no different. Pecan's dam, HVF Lady Marcy, is sired by the legendary Drover Hills DH Dalton. Who is by Gilchrist's Kodiak, the 1996 NWSS Champion Bull. Here is a heifer that can go any direction and do great things for anyone's fold.

All known photos of Top Gun I of Mapleview were lost during a data transfer when a university student was writing an article. Elm Hollow Farms was able to track down a full sibling of that same flush as Top Gun I that looks almost identical. (Bull Pictured is his place is Winchester of Mapleview)

BTTR Magnolia is a pretty yellow heifer with a great demeanor and a stacked pedigree. Just a few minutes after her first time on the halter she was leading around like an old pro. That kind of personality can't be taught and makes her amazing to be around. To top it off, Magnolia is sired by the 1998 NWSS Grand Champion Bull, DH Exclusive. Exclusive is sired by DH White Gold, the 1992 NWSS Champion Bull and out of Orfhlaith 2nd of Dirtane. A daughter of the legendary Ben Eniglair of Scone Palace. Magnolia's dam, HVF Lady Marcy, was a Gilchrist's Kodiak bred cow. Kodiak was the 1996 NWSS Grand Champion Bull.

 squiresfarmandranch@gmail.com

Apollo is an AHCA registered dun bull calf. He has great genetics and a laid back personality. He is not currently halter broke, but with his laid back and docile demeanor, he should halter train easily. Apollo is sired by Spring Creek Eli, who is by Skye High Capone, the 2015 NWSS Reserve Champion Bull. Eli has consistently produced low birth weight calves that have steady growth. We expect Apollo to be a good heifer bull like his sire, and a great animal for a first time bull owner.
