Welcome to WAR Ranch.
Located in North Texas, this
4,500 acre ranch was established by owner, Wendell Reeder,
over 35 years ago. WAR Ranch has two primary locations - one
along the Red River currently planted in crops; the other
near Clarksville, Texas, home to our horse and cattle
WAR Ranch has been well known
in the Simmental and Simbrah cattle breeding business for
many years and had numerous Champions and Grand Champions at
the most prestigious cattle shows throughout the country,
including the Panamerican Livestock Exposition, National
Western Livestock Show, Houston International, American
Royal, Texas Beef Expo, Fort Worth Stock Show, Eastern
National Livestock Show, North American Livestock Show,
Keystone International Livestock Expo, Simmental Breeder
Sweepstakes, International Simbrah Congress, etc. Those
winning bloodlines continue on in our current herd of
Commerical Simmental and Simbrah cattle. We sell bulls,
stockers and replacement heifers at the ranch.
Many years ago,
Wendell Reeder became involved in Thoroughbred racing. He
bought what he felt were bargains, put effort into their
training, and ran them in match races, dirt tracks, Claiming
Races, and Stakes Races in Louisiana. He was lucky enough to
raise a mare called WAR Fame, a multiple winner on the
track, among many others.
Mr. Reeder later wanted to get
into an equine sport where he could personally compete. He
was introduced to cutting horses about 10 years ago and has
owned and shown some outsanding individuals since that time.
Two of our show horses, Miss Smokin Garfield - NCHA LTE
$244,717 and MH Split The Aces - NCHA LTE $204,320, shown by
Lee Francois in the Open and Wendell Reeder in the Non
Pro/Amateur, are now in the broodmare band producing
multiple offspring each year.
