Today 18 March 2018, we had to say Goodbye to our precious boy Ramkat. It was such a pleasure and privilege to have had him in our lives. Rest in peace old boy, you will be missed.
Spitsvuur Ramkat (94.7%) Born 14/12/08. Hips 1-2. Elbows 0-0. Shoulder height 65.5 cm. Ec- + entropion free. Provincial Champion and class winner at National Boerboel Show. (With his new score of 94.7% he again moved ahead of his progeny. He has got quite a few yearlings with scores way better than 90%. His oldest 12 progeny are already appraised. The 4 males scored an average of 91.6% and the 8 females scored on average 88.6%. )
Caberet Pavarotti (93.3%) x Spitsvuur Radja (82.8%). Spitsvuur Ramkat took the Boerboel world by storm. He is so extremely impressive, and his coat is so shiny black, that people love him very much. His progeny has now started to contribute to his extreme popularity. People that have seen some of his progeny, now believe that he is the best source of strength, heads and muscle in the Boerboel breed. He is now used much more frequently than before.
It is hard to describe the abilities of a legend: Spitsvuur Ramkat is an extremely wide and strong dog with a head that is very close to perfect, and a neck, chest, top, rump and legs that are very correct. Although he himself is medium size, he produced sons that range from 66 to 74 cm. If something negative must be said about him, it is the fact that he could leave too much volume and weight on his progeny. He must not be used on the wide, stocky, heavily muscled females. Ramkat, like his father Pavarotti, is a very, very good mover. He is very light on his feet and he has got a kind temperament.
