The Forell Ranch is located along the historic Butterfield Trail where the Big Country region of West Texas unfolds into the Concho Valley. The landscape is a mosaic of rolling hills and rocky breaks, and native prairie grass pastures, mesquite and live oak, prickly pear and yucca. In 2009, the ranch was awarded the Outstanding Conservation Rancher of the Year for excellent range management by Clear Fork Conservation District. Over the past two decades, the Forell Ranch has produced some great breeding stock and performance horses focused on Joe Hancock/Blue Valentine & Driftwood bloodlines. Forell-bred horses have ended up coast to coast and Europe.
