The girls took turns and worked together this summer to help break heifers for County Show in September. In between camps and vacations. They got them pretty well broke. Thank you to the Blake and Burt families for getting them here to help! They also scrapped panels, scooped alleys and sweat a lot! We appreciate you! :)
TCL Casper's Dotie West was Champion Simmental and TCL Star Pepper was reserve. Thank you to the Burt and Blake families for your help and support.
We started with five and broke four. We turned one out we probably should have kept but she will make a great cow! This one we sure like and she was a challenge but she has turned out well. A WCS Lonestar sired baby. We sure are happy with them and him!
Congratulations to Paizlee Oxtoby. She showed OXO Bricktown Buttercup sired by TLC/TLCC Turks Bricktown and her Shorthorn Heifer. Buttercup won her division.
Congratulations Ransom. He showed a heifer sired by TLC/TLCC Turks Bricktown x TLC Zena E710. Dam Sire: TLC/TCL/TLCC Bandit A3483
Practice makes perfect. Shelby is learning the ropes.
Olivia and Dolly are looking good!
We invited another intern to our home and ranch in July 2022. This makes the fourth one we've hosted as intern at Thorne Ranch. Robert Onley from Australia was the first one and he became and still is a part of our family. We keep in contact with, Kyle Robinson from Florida and Patric Paul Jr. from Texas. They were great to have around and they never complained and we hope we were a positive impact on their lives and learning.

Turks great disposition and predictable ability to produce beautiful udders on his daughters and very fertile son's will be carried on by his 135 progeny produced here at Thorne Ranch and several other herds including Diamonds In the Rough of Oologah, OK our partners. He spent his entire life here except when he was being hauled and promoted by Mike Runner and the Diamonds family. He was born in 2006 as an ET Calf.
