White Cattle Company

Located in Buffalo, Wyoming, White Cattle Company raises premier bulls and heifers, focusing on maternal and structural correctness traits. With a rich legacy that can be traced back to the late 1800’s, the ranch initially raised Longhorn cattle brought in from Texas. They phased those out over time and began raising Hereford cattle.

Today they run a commercial herd of Hereford, black and black baldy cows. Along with Herefords, they also market club calves and Red Angus seed stock.

A true family run operation, Joel White and his wife Karri, proudly carry on the tradition of raising purebred Hereford in southwest Wyoming, along with their children – the fifth generation of Hereford breeders.

Visit White Cattle Company and check out the cattle they have for sale or their previous winners.

Our favorite ad of the week

Since Matt Lautner is always giving us "shout outs" on his News from the Road blog, we thought we would return the favor and give Matt some publicity on ours. Earlier in the week Matt hired us to design his 3 page ad for The Showbox, promoting fall semen sales. After we sent him the proof, he commented to us that this is one of his all time favorite ads we've ever done for him! Which says a lot, considering we've been doing his ads for 6 years. So, take a look, and let us know if you like it too :)

Community Support

Ranch House Designs is always happy to give back to the communities we serve and especially welcome the chance to help our college alma mater Texas A&M University. Several members of our staff, Aggies and non-Aggies alike, will be attending the Gulf Coast Aggies Coach’s Night Thursday, July 22 in Richmond, Texas.

A&M head football coach Mike Sherman will be the featured speaker for the evening and I’m sure everyone will enjoy hearing what he has to say about the upcoming season, as well as the controversy surrounding the football conference drama earlier this summer.

The event is being held to raise money for the Ft. Bend County, Wharton County and Katy A&M clubs’ scholarship funds for students attending Texas A&M. Their fund raising goal is $25,000.

RHD will be donating a web site package to the auction. If you’d like more information about the event, or would like to attend, visit the Ft. Bend Aggies web site at

Can’t wait for football season to begin! Gig ‘Em!

The Coconut Blossom

Check out our latest fun and sassy site – the Coconut Blossom, home of the Pear Flat Candle Company and the Sassy Zebra Candle Company. A few short years after launching the Pear Flat Candle Co., a 12 year old girl named Shelby Watson wanted to create something new that was slightly sassy with a little pizzazz, thus Sassy Zebra was born. Now the two have combined to create The Coconut Blossom.

Creating candles is a precise art, from color to temperature to wick placement. The Coconut Blossom takes pride in each of their hand-poured candles, using an opaque wax designed especially for their containers. Their candles also feature coreless, cotton wicks that bend at the tip when burning, leaving behind less smoke.

They also use the highest percentage of scent possible, which means you will get fragrance to the very bottom of the jar. Featuring more than 60 scents, they offer red hot cinnamon, gingerbread, raspberry chocolate drizzle and pumpkin soufflĂ©. Are you hungry yet? There’s also leather, honeysuckle and blackberry vanilla. Too bad we can’t scratch and sniff!

Visit their site for a complete listing of available scents and check back often as they continually add new ones.

The Coconut Blossom offers candles for sale both wholesale and retail.
