2Henry’s of Hico, LLC (2Henry’s Ranch) is a roughly 20 acre ranch, located in the rolling Texas countryside just north of the town of Hico, Texas, on State Highway 220. Acquired in 2018, 2Henrys Ranch is owned by Mathew (Henry) and Chardean Gillispie and John (Henry) and Lisa Buehrle.
As you can imagine, we are very proud of our champion quarter horse stallion, A Tale of the Cat (High Brow Cat X Autumn Boon). Torch still burning up the show arena and is currently the #5 offspring of Autumn Boon with over $100,000 NCHA earnings. While we feel that his looks speak for themselves, his strong parentage and light linebreeding make him a great candidate for any non-Herda carrying mare in ANY performance horse discipline.
A great stud needs exceptionally bred broodmares. Our mares are own daughters of some of the industry’s top sires and dams and when matched with our stallion their deep linebreeding is unrivaled. We focus on quality, not quantity, and believe that to breed champion bloodlines, you need quality mares.
Our foals are the result of a dedication to producing high performance/high earning offspring. We actively research linebreeding and crosses which we believe will produce performance horses that will excel in a wide variety of competitive events such as cutting, barrel racing, reining, roping, and more. Our goal is to produce horses with great minds, substance, and athletic ability.
Here you will find pictures of A Tale Of The Cat in competition! It takes our whole team and even more to get everything done! We collectively joke about how this pressure is “Serious Stuff!” and thought the name of this gallery appropriate.
Competing and performing at a high level in this sport takes a lot of hard work, dedication, practice and personal sacrifice. Marketing, promoting and managing his breeding career on top of it are additional responsibilities we take on in order to make and keep Torch relevant.
