The Importance of Character

Recent events have led me to center my blog today on something I think is rather important. I believe that every generation looks back on the preceding generation and says to themselves, “Wow, look how far we have fallen.” I think of my grandparents’ generation – THE GREATEST GENERATION. They are universally accepted as the […]

Happy Dam Mother’s Day!

Yes, I wrote that title. You’re welcome. It’s a very special day, indeed. Mothers must be cherished all year, but especially on “their” day. The two most important women in my life – without a doubt – have been my mother and the mother of my five children, my beloved wife. Abraham Lincoln said, “All […]

A Horse of a Different Color

I have spoken to thousands of people over the years on mating selection. Of course, not everyone I speak with has done business with me; that would be awesome if that were the case! But I’ve learned a lot over the years as to what motivates people in their decision-making process. Most are rational, but […]

What Makes a Champion?

What makes a champion? What makes them different than the rest? What gives them the edge that elevates them above all the rest out there? What is in the heart of a champion, and why doesn’t everyone have it? It takes great work ethic, dedication and sacrifice, but more than that, it takes talent! Kevin […]

Good, Better, Best for the Horse Industry

In 2007, I was introduced to the tremendous principal of “Good, Better, Best” by a remarkable man, Dallin H. Oaks. He is a leader within my church; I’ve never met him, but through the years I have come to deeply love and respect his wise counsel. In “Good, Better, Best,” he said, “Most of us […]

Our Website Evolution

First, I would like to wish EVERYONE a very merry Christmas from all of us here at Buffalo Ranch. I read an article that said one human year equals at least four internet years. That’s […]

The 21st Century Horse Business

Living in the Information Age is glorious! It’s also maddening to no end! Instant information is always available and always on. Communication is global. There has never been so much opportunity, nor has there ever been so much confusion. It’s hard to keep up sometimes. It is like drinking from a fire hose. We all […]

A Proclamation of Gratitude

One of my favorite holidays is upon us! Here in the U.S., we celebrate Thanksgiving annually on the fourth Thursday of November. For most Americans, it has turned into a bounteous feast of turkey and glutinous delight while watching three National Football League games. For cutting and reining professionals, it is as much of that […]

Stallion Management: The Who, What & Why – Part Two

Today I’m picking up from where I left off with my last blog entry about our 2018 stallion roster. I know this is a long blog, but it is one I hope mare owners can really sink their teeth into. Pretty Peppy Chec 2005 bay (Lil Ruf Peppy x Chex N Whiz x Topsail Whiz) I […]
