Registered Texas Longhorns...for Sale...since 2008.
In early 2008, I purchased my first Texas Longhorns, having originally high fenced my ranch for stocking Whitetails and Red Deer. Longhorns had captured my attention, not only in reading about them,
but visiting ranches like the YO Ranch and in South Texas, a friendship grew out of my trips to John and Rose Mary Floyd's Diamond F Ranch and watching their Longhorn herd...The allure was strong. I committed to assembling a herd, breeding and raising them by the end of 2008. Over the last decade, we bred, bought and sold some outstanding Texas Longhorns, working on improving our herd and the breed through the best of conditions as well as a couple of the worst droughts on record. By January 2012, TB Kelly Nellie, our first 90" cow was born here, followed in Jan. 2013, by TB Tari's Ginger Snap, now in the 90" Club, currently residing at El Coyote Ranch. Texas Longhorns have the reputation of "built to last" , surviving the elements on their own in the days of the open range ... as mothers, they are unmatched for instinctively birthing, protecting and raising their own calves; a new calf marks time in a progression, usually out of various degrees of a genetic match, with the potential of improving desired traits within the herd. One might recognize God's hand in their development.... for Texas Longhorns are the product of 'intelligent design', having endured , adapted, and evolved over hundreds of years in the wild and on their own, throughout much of Texas and beyond. They have become a symbol of "The West", reminiscent of the origins of cowboys and cattle drives. They are both living history, pasture art, practical and currently, evolving through various degrees of genetic engineering. There is something extra special about them while no two are just alike... they have a grounding influence on most of their ardent admirers, as ranchers with Texas Longhorns watch them steadily graze their way through all kinds of range and pastures, living out their lives... "all the live long day".
