Wes and Suzanne...and our pups

Wes grew up in Eastern Tennessee where he worked dairy farms.  His love for cattle developed dreams of one day owning his own ranch.  After several years of working in the dairy farms, Wes made the decision to join the Military.  During his 20 year career, he obtained two Bachelor degree's in Automotive and Civil Engineering.  

Suzanne was born and raised in Bellaire, Texas.  She always had a dream of being in Veterinary Medicine.  Suzanne received her Bachelors of Science and worked as a Practice Manager for Veterinary hospitals for over a decade.  She decided to make a career change and became a Top Producing Realtor for Greenwood King Properties in Houston.  Today, Suzanne is a Realtor with Ekdahl-Nelson Real Estate in Abilene, Texas.

We are very blessed and honored to be able to raise Steers for our Church Men's Ministry.  

We are proud parents of two wonderful "cattle" dogs.  Finley Fiona is a 2 year old Boston Terrier, that is rotten to the core.  Finley loves her cows and is very involved during feeding times but enjoys the evenings monitoring them from the patio. Belle is a 1.5 year old Yellow Labrador that loves splashing in the water, herding her cows and picking up any left over range cubes that may be left behind.  These two city dogs adapted quickly to loving the cows as much as we do!

We both fell in love with the Longhorn breed and decided to take a leap of faith and begin a new career together.  Today we are proud owners of great quality Registered Texas Longhorns.  We are excited and look forward to meeting fellow Longhorn Lovers.  See you at an event!

Thank you for taking the time to see where Southern Longhorns began!  Wes, Suzanne, Finley and Belle
