Quarter Horses

Time-tested pedigrees.

World-class horses.

The ranch consistently produces and develops some of the most highly recognized Quarter Horses by matching proven maternal genetics with the industry’s leading racing, cutting, cowhorse, ranch and all-around performance sires.

The annual Return to the Remuda Sale is held at the Four Sixes Ranch each fall and includes registered American Quarter Horses of various ages from four historic ranches: Four Sixes Ranch, Beggs Cattle Company, Pitchfork Cattle Company and Tongue River Ranch. This sale provides the opportunity to purchase horses from legendary ranches that have been refining and perfecting American Quarter Horses for more than a century.

Black Angus Cattle

Superior genetics.

Exceptional performance.

A true working cattle ranch, the Four Sixes brings more than 100 years of superior cattle breeding expertise to our new Black Angus cattle program. In fact, you might say our cattle have 150 years of background – ever since Captain Samuel “Burk” Burnett purchased those first 100 head wearing the “6666” brand from Frank Crowley of Denton, Texas, way back in 1870.
