Welcome to our web site!
name is Ron Jones and my wife, Jo and I, welcome you to our Texas Longhorn site. Enjoy the tour and if you see
something you like, please feel free to contact us.
Gunman was born in 1993 and used only 3 years on our small herd. We had only 1 cow at that time with over 50" of
horn tip to tip. We have built our herd upon GUNMAN genetics. Most all of the Gunman sons and daughters you see
throughout the U.S. and Canada were bred and born here in Salida, Colorado. Gunman bred cattle usually have alot of
low, lateral horn that measures well tip to tip! Most cattle born on our ranch carry the "J.R." prefix indicating
they were born here at Jones Ranch...by Jo and Ron!
We usually have a price on some of our cattle. This price is as stable as the stockmarket...they change
daily sometimes! If you find a price you like give us a call. It pays to check back often as we sometimes have
some real "specials"!!
Last Update: 6/28/14; uploading new measurements on Chisholm Trail and Mermaid.

Top picture=Gandi, Dandi, and Friends! Dandi is by Gunman. She has been purchased from us by Joshua Cashman.
Gandi is a granddaughter of Gunman out of Dandi. She is pictured as a 2 year old. The 2nd (lower) picture
is a picture of Gandi at 7 years of age . We like twisty horns!
Our '09 and '10 calves are beautiful but have "aggressive" personalities!!
Breeding our linebred Gunman females to the great Premium bull has given us the best class of '05 heifers in the country
according to Dick Lowe of Triple R Ranch in Horton Michigan!! He'd traveled the country and seen the rest when he made
this statement in the fall of '06. Journey through our web site and see if you find these heifers and their families.
We are always trying to get our "ducks" in a row for top production!
Here's the scoop on our tried and prooven bulls:
Gunman gives us that early and lateral horn growth.
Premium gives us early and late horn growth...with a twist... and perfect conformation. K.C. Just Respect
gives us more frame with perfect conformation, color golore...with specks, LATE horn growth with abundant thickness
of horn. All three bulls give us excellent Disposition on their progeny. Don't
miss our Sale...every day 24/7!!
We were pleased to see K.C. Hershey's Kiss sell as the '09 Legacy Sale for $65000! She is a 2/3
sister to our K.C.Just Respect as they are both sired by the great but short lived bull, Hunts Demand Respect (plus they both
have Gunman genetics). Our friend, Craig Perez, said "Anyone that hasn't figured out Hunt's "Demand" Respect's
power by now has their eyes and ears closed!"
October-You may have noticed that Bill Hudson has purchased our K.C. Just Respect bull. The Les Craft family from
Houston then bought our J.R. Viking bull. This was not by design! We are trying to restructure our future breeding
program around some of our young bulls. We have also recently purchased the bull calf, J.R. Quixote, out of Hershey's
Kiss and by J.R. Tribune. We like to recycle the best Gunman outcrosses we can get our hands on.
Jo and I have an executive board meeting every morning of the year outdoors before sunup. We make all of our executive
decisions for the day at that time...like who will take out the trash. From where we sit our cattle program really looks
