Wagonhound Land and Livestock’s roots go back to the late
1800s when the cattle drives came up from Texas and the pioneers
traveled through on the Oregon Trail. As settlers moved across the
land, a tough-to-cross creek became well-known as the Wagon
Hound Creek because many wagons broke their hounds as they
crossed. Today, this creek is located only yards from Wagonhound
headquarters and the ranch brand, “quarter circle, bar, quarter circle,”is the territorial brand, originally registered in 1909, that loosely resembles a wagon hound.
For more information about our history follow this link:
Represents the "hound" of a horse drawn wagon. There was a place on the Oregon trail on a creek with a large grade on the other side. Many wagons did not make it to the top and ran back down to the creek and broke apart. The "hounds" and broken pieces of wagon were laying all around the creek, serving as a warning that you better have good horses and your gear together or you would suffer the same fate. Soon the creek was called Wagonhound Creek. First known owners of ranch took the Wagonhound name. This site is on the Headquarters Division of the ranch.
Because of the wagon wheels that passed through the ranch in the early days?

Our son-in-lae Chantz Bales (owner of Above Par Fencing) and His crew did 2 large projects for Wagonhound over the last 2 years. Spring of 2016 they did a 1000 head corral on the headquarters division, and in 2017 they spent most of the summer and early fall building the pens for a large feedlot just outside Douglas. Great experience for all of us and Wagonhound is a great operation to work with.
