Spade Ranches
The story of the Spade ranches begins in 1889 when Illinois businessman Isaac Ellwood stepped off the train in the west Texas town of Colorado City. This entrepreneur was looking to find customers for his new product – barbed wired. Not only did he find customers, he also purchased the beginning of what would become the noted Spade Ranches who won the 2010 AQHA Best Remuda Award. Visit the Ranches Channel.
