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

The month of September has jumped right on us. I for one am excited. I love this time of year. The weather has thankfully cooled down as up until last Saturday I sweated more in the month of September then I did all of August.
We're starting to hit our fall calf crop. Come on heifers! I need some badly. This will lead us up to the sales coming up. The Hill Country Sale is this weekend. Then the Valentine Dispersal, Carl Brantley's Sale in NC, and then the Longhorn Extravaganza for us in OKC. It should be a good fall. All of October I'm gone and on the road. That kind of cuts into my archery season, dang. But I know I'll make up for it some where.
We've cleared the first of three hurdles. Let's see if we can clear the second.
See you down the road...
