We believe that we have a Herd Sire Lineup that will conserve a small part of  "Owen McGill's 42 year Legacy" to the Registered Longhorn Breed.  Owen is well known and acknowledged as a "Master Breeder". It has been my strongest desire to understand and learn his style of "constructive line breeding" that he did so well. I have been studying this particular "style" of breeding since before 2001 in horses and since 2005 in Texas Longhorns.

I started collecting "McGill bred bloodlines" in 2007 when I bought "Rumble" from "Dora Thompson of Sand Hills Ranch" who had gotten Rumble from Owen himself. Since then I have been adding McGill old and new bloodlines into our herd as well as some nice outcross females too.

While we don't have the leading edge of maximum tip to tip horn growth, I do feel it is more important for me to conserve some part of what Owen built.

"ROUNDUP" is the Bull that put Owen on the map. "Roundup" genetics is what I have built my program around.
-
All have been picked to compliment the others in our effort of quality pedigree building.

We believe in "Total Horn with a beautiful Twist" is what Texas Longhorns are all about.

We are working on putting more lateral horn into our herd and are seeing the results of that.

This is also where we wish to thank "Owen McGill and Johnnie Wilson" whom our herd sires carry the genetic "constructive linebreeding program" put into place by this very famous team 42 years ago.  I was honored to be able to chase/research pedigrees via telephone with Owen over several years. He loved to go at "least" 6-7 generations back. Sadly, Owen passed away Spring of 2015. He is missed.

ALL 9 bulls listed below reflect both old and new McGill/Wilson breedings.
