About​ ​​Fritz Longhorns:

​Aniamls/Breed: Texas Longhorn cattle
​​​Corsicana, Texas
Michael & Elizabeth Fritz

"We don't compromise on any facet of the longhorn breed. We strive for color, conformation, horn, and pedigree. Both a good temperament and mothering ability are vital.

We love these animals and treat them as part of our family.

As such, we take great care in selecting members of our herd. Our foundation cows have diverse genetics and each carries traits we want to pass on to the next generation. Our heifers come from great stock and we believe they have great potential. Happy 9, our herd sire, is the product of Cowboy Tuff Chex, the world record longest tip-to-tip bull, and M Arrow Cha-Ching, the industry's longest total horn cow. Not only will Happy pass along great horn, but he's also proven his ability to pass along color, size, and conformation. He is on his way to stardom...."


About​ the ​​Fritz Longhorns website:

Set Up/Design: ​​​Mix & Match
Functionality Package: Foreman

Fritz Longhorns customized their Mix & Match design to include a deep contrast of color on their website and a unique way to highlight their logo. They also included a photo gallery page to showcase more of their animals and ranch in a visually appealing way (check out their Facebook for more great photography). This bold and clean design works great with their ranch's branding. Welcome to the #HiredHandPowered team!

About​ ​G&R Farms:

​Aniamls/Breed: Horses & Cattle
​​​Iowa Falls, Iowa
Gary & Robinson Sampson

"We are Robin and Gary Sampson and have built our model and our set up from scratch.  Our goal is to provide good prospects in the horse industry. To that end, we have partnered on the ownership of the well know stallion Guitar Gun. We are excited to continue his legacy right here in Central Iowa standing at the Broken J Lazy A Ranch with Ann Luebbers.

Whether your passion is pleasure, trail, or roping, we have a prospect to fit.

The colts we sell are home raised. We are continually looking to add to and upgrade our broodmare brand. Our colts get lots of attention which helps gives them a head start on handling."

About​ the ​G&R Farms website:

Set Up/Design: ​​​Mix & Match
Functionality Package: Wrangler

G&R Farms utilized the Mix & Match website design option to help their website stand out from others. By having their homepage split into different elements of a banner photo, a content section, and a button section, their homepage is easy to navigate while also being aesthetically pleasing. We love the way the G&R Farms website turned out. Welcome to the #HiredHandPowered team!

About​ ​​Ironwood Ranch:

​Aniamls/Breed: Texas Longhorn cattle
​Valley View, Texas
Kirk & Renee Phillips

​"Our mission is to manage our ranch in an environmentally sustainable way and raise the best quality registered Texas Longhorns to be found.

We are not a big operation but we can guarantee that our animals carry only the best blood lines and a look at their ancestry confirms that we take great pride in our breeding program. We continually strive for cattle with good confirmation, intelligence, personality and health. Our animals are known for their gentle disposition and of course impressive horns!. We work with our herd every day so they are comfortable around us and our guests. To be honest, we love and adore them like our own children and once you get to know them you will feel the same.

Famed Texas writer J. Frank Dobie once said 'The Texas Longhorn made more history than any other breed of cattle the civilized world has known.' Our goal is to continue to make history with these legendary animals."
