Early in our marriage, we dreamed of owning a ranch and even picked out the name Rockin' Z Ranch.  Some years and three kids later, we have been able to escape Houston and live our dream.  Our kids love the ranch just as much as we do and they are learning about hard work.  We want to instill the love of hard work into our kids while they are young so that it will become a way of life for them, no matter what they chose to do in the future.  Our oldest son is working on halter breaking two of our calves so that he will be able to participate in upcoming longhorn shows.  We are excited for him and the opportunity that he has to learn to work with such amazing animals.  We enjoy raising our longhorns and are looking forward to the spring calving season so that we can meet our new longhorn babies.
