By the end of the Civil War, the King Ranch
was 1456,000 acres and supported thousands of heads of cattle. The King Ranch has continued to grow and branch out and multiple other ways as well!
You can now get luggage sets
and other leather goods with the iconic and historic brand. But they have gone beyond even developing and branding their own merchandise. Ford trucks has a King Ranch edition truck that is nothing short of pristine and top of the line. They still have their quarterhorse operation active and according to them, “Every horse on King Ranch is a descendant of OLD SORREL, the foundation sire of King Ranch, and one of the foundation sires of the American Quarter Horse breed. Every horse on the ranch descends from PEPPY SAN BADGER or MR. SAN PEPPY on the top or bottom side.”
So you can travel King Ranch style via truck, horseback…and even airplane. King Ranch has developed the King Air, a feat that no other ranch has accomplished. And make no mistake, the King Air is top of the line when it comes to style, especially western style! You’ll just have to hope to take a ride in one one day in order to find out!
