5th Annual Fall Roundup
Saturday October 25th, 2014
In the fall of 2010 G&G decided to have a small field day. Originally planned to be a small group of 10-15 friends quickly turned into a gathering of over 100 people & 60 head of cattle filled with good laughs, funny jokes, a catered lunch, & some quick work of branding spring calves. Since then the Fall Roundup has branded over 180 head of cattle and had an attendance of over 350 people. As we enter the 5th Annual Fall Roundup we want to invite and welcome as many longhorn enthusiasts as we can to join us in this year’s event.
The fall roundup has always signified many things. It was the unofficial end to a long summer of doctoring calves and cows, making sure stock had plenty of hay and water during the hot months, and gathering up plenty of hay for the winter. It was the unofficial start to winter where the work was going to take twice as long in the cold, where hay becomes worth its weight in gold, where a warm stove and a hot cup of coffee becomes a man’s daily salvation. But most importantly it was a time of friendship, fellowship, and cowboying; a time to visit, recollect, talk about what was and what is, strengthen old relationships, make new ones, & talk cattle. We ask you to please come join us on October 24th- 25th on our ranch in Catlett, VA as we continue our quest in the promotion of all things longhorn.
Sincerely, Ann Gravett, G&G Longhorns

Well we got done with all our small square bales in two days. We could have done it in one but the kids had baseball practice and it shut us down. Not my kids of couse, Ben's grandsons work for us. The youngest grandson who's Ben's oldest boy's, is my last hope for getting the 3rd generation Gravett interested in cattle. I'm hoping he enjoys them. One day he'll want to continue the G&G brand. I started thinking back to when I was his age and working on this farm and what I enjoyed so much about it. The only real reason I could come up with was I just flat out enjoyed the cattle. I thought they were awesome. I really didn't think there was anything cooler then the idea of the cowboy. But I was like that since I could remember.
Ben wouldn't have been happy with us making hay when we did. It wasn't hot enough. He would get a good laugh out of us suffering through the heat. But he did it when he was younger, so did millions of other people in this world dealing with hay. It came down to a pride thing for me, to tell him don't bring it weak, we want it hotter.
I hope he's watching down on us, or looking up, where ever he is, and he's proud.
See you down the road...
