A Brief History
Sam Dove grew up on a fifth generation home ranch in Hood County, Texas. He worked on ranches in the Big Bend area of Texas while attending and graduating from Sul Ross State University.
Cattle Company was started in 1976 with a modest herd of beef cattle, rodeo cattle, and horses.
Through the years of managing some of the biggest ranches in West Texas, Sam continued to compete in team roping, reining, cutting, and ranch horse competitions. The SD brand became synonymous with well-bred, good looking and gentle horses that were consistent winners. The demand for these horses has grown tremendously as these reputation ranch horses have become favorites all over the Southwest. The multi-section ranches of West Texas are still the main reason for the success of these horses, as they get miles and miles of ranch use before they move on to various other disciplines and/or competitions.
Cattle Company and Ranch Horses sell only a select few of very special horses each year. All horses sold are experienced in all ranch work (regardless of their age) and many already have winnings in roping, cutting, ranch horse competitions, and/or ranch rodeos. The testimonials and partial list of past winners included here lend proof to the reputation and quality of branded horses.
