The best boar of any color has to have a name to go along with that distinction-thus the name MAN amongst Boys fits here. We fell in love with this one the day he hit the chips. We did offer him to the public but decided sale night he needed to be a stud boar to cover our Hampshire sows as well as yours.
If we just talk about phenotype, this is a moderate framed boar that is as big in his center as they come, yet he still has good look and extension thru his neck with a traditional Hampshire head and ear. What takes this he-man to the top tier is ability (like as a baby see pig write up below) to flex his skeleton and plant all four with a true secure stride. Man amongst Boys is most impressive coming at you because he is so wide chested, yet his shoulder is laid correctly on his rib and that rib has unmatched curvature and arch. This added rib and center mass allows MAB to be massive backed. He jumps out of his blades, his back is table-top wide and square, and hooks into a flawless, wide-set hip. Bone keeps in proportion or matches the center mass and is clean and flat with wide-set dewclaws and a strong pastern. We still believe it is too close to call, but MAB has a few white hairs that may pass the inside center of his left hock to make him off-belted, but they maybe his only fault.
To truly appreciate MAB genetics and how extensively lined up his pedigree is, please take the time to go to National Swine Registry website and do a pedigree search with ear notch 23-3 and MAB registration number 489308003 and you will even like this one better! If you want the quick summary, MAB has Point Maker's mother and grand dam (Make Me Famous), Unreal and Real Appeal (PM 21-10 mom) all tightly woven in the first several generations. What that means is this one should generate like he looks! Predictable!!! The added affect you will get when you take him to a non-Point Maker female or one that has PM back a generation or two, you will get a true hybrid or outcross effect just like making an F-1. Power and style with a pedigree to back him up makes him a MAN amongst Boys!
