"The signature 'Pitchfork Gray' has now become as synonymous with the ranch as the brand itself."

The Pitchfork ranch horse has a reputation that sells itself. The remuda has come a long way from the small native ponies first used on the ranch. The first improvement in the horse herd came from a thoroughbred US Military remount stallion named Trimmer. This gave the cowboys horses with increased size and stamina. Seal Brown was the first quarter horse stallion purchased by Pitchfork manager, Rudolph Swenson in 1941. The stallion produced an outstanding herd of brood mares. Upon Seal Brown’s death in 1946, the ranch acquired Joe Bailey’s King, and he soon became legendary. To add to the legacy were Otoe, Savanah Jr., Gray Badger, Gray Dee Bar and Dash For Cash. The modern bloodlines including, but not limited to High Brow Cat, Playgun, Grays Starlight, CD OlenaOne  Time Pepto  and  Sophisticated  Catt  have  been  added  in  recent  years  along with  syndication breedings to Rockin W(past winner of the NCHA Futurity) and Paddys Irish Whiskey.  Pitchfork horses are very versatile athletes These horses have been tried and proven in the pasture, rodeo arena, polo fields and performance arena all over the world.

The ranch's remuda consists of approximately 50 brood mares, 70 saddle horses and 5 stallions.  The first sale was held in November 1963 when fifty horses were offered and sold. This brought the ranch a considerable amount of publicity and recognition and paved the way for numerous horse sales throughout the years, each one being more successful than the last. The Pitchfork  raises  horses primarily for their own use, but does make horses available to the public through select sales such as the "Return to the Remuda" sale in Guthrie, Texas and the "Best of the Remuda" sale in Ft. Worth, Texas  and occasionally private treaty.
