Dogs older than 5 months would start with Basic Obedience. See more info

Prizewinning Texas Longhorns at Blue Ridge
Blue Ridge Longhorns are consistently in the ribbons and capturing championships at fairs and farm shows in the region. We offer breeding stock and quality show steers. We’ve even had some that were broke to ride! Not every cow is show-quality so there is generally a good selection of frozen Longhorn beef—no hormones, no antibiotics, and locally processed! See more on our longhorns.
