Our horses are expected to work anytime, anywhere. They must be very versatile. On any given day we may be working cattle in the South Louisiana marshes or prairies, the thickets of East Texas or the flint hills of Kansas. They are all on constant standby to do whatever we need them for, from cow work to ranch rodeos or versatile horse competitions on the weekends to the occasional parade. We keep a few other geldings from well known breeders in Texas as well, but we seem to saddle up the Gray Ranch horses the most. These horses are the right type and kind for anyone. Because of the breeding and training the Gray Ranch gives their horses, you are way ahead of your competition as soon as you load them in your trailer. I should also mention they are good looking as well. Our greenest Gray Ranch horse will be dragging cattle of out the brush one day and be used for equine therapy for young children the next. Because of the amount of cattle sorting we do, the Gray Ranch horses have the “cowing” ability and agility we desire and the calmness to stay collected when we get in tight spots. This quiet nature helps to keep them sound for many years to come. These days we don’t have to swim many rivers or canals, but if we did – it would be on a Gray Ranch horse!
Gray’s Silver Catalys is a favorite of ours. He is a young bay gelding by Cat Silver and a Taris Catalyst mare with a great mind and an exceptional handle. At 3 years old he was doing everything we needed on the ranch and in the arena alongside other seasoned ranch geldings. The only problem with the Gray Ranch horses is that they are “lifers”, we can’t bring ourselves to sell any of them.
Thanks to Mr. Kent and his cowboys for breeding and training some of the best ranch and performance horses in the country.
