About 2Henry's Ranch

2Henry’s of Hico, LLC (2Henry’s Ranch) is located on State Highway 220, in the rolling Texas countryside just north of the town of Hico TX. Sitting on approximately 20 acres, 2Henry’s Of Hico (2Henry’s Ranch) is also affectionately known as the old “Miss Purdy Place,” a nod to local resident Jean Purdy. Miss Purdy had a well-known cutting horse ranch here, and in 1985 with help from “the hand” who lived in the barn, Bobby Kerr, won the AQHA Honor Roll Senior Cutting on her stallion Lucky Captain Jess. Now, our neighbor to the North, Bobby Kerr is an accomplished poet, he founded the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame, and was awarded Mustang Makeover Champion which he has now made a career of travelling the country with his wife Susan performing his award-winning NFR Specialty Act! It’s really kinda cool to have neighbors like that!

2henrys ranch - a tale of the cat NCHA cutting horse stallion


Our horses boast some of the finest bloodlines available today. We focus on quality, not quantity, and our broodmares are own daughters of some of the industry’s top sires and dams making deep powerful linebreeding when matched with our stallion A Tale Of The Cat!

We research linebreeding and crosses which increase the chances for high performance/high earning offspring. Our foals are sold completely fit and ready to go to the next level. We don’t only have horses!! 2Henry’s Ranch is also home to: “Her Cowness” Henrietta, our spoiled diva longhorn!


A Tale Of The Cat was originally trained and shown by Open Hall of Famer Jason Clark for owner Robert Charles Brown who purchased the stallion as a two-year old. A Tale Of The Cat with Jason on-board were the favorite to win the 2014 NCHA Futurity Open but, after the semi-finals the stallion started to show signs of colic and the rush was on to stabilize him. Even though this occurred, the two finished 7th and in 2015 went on to compete at a high level competing in events such as the Summer Spectacular, Breeders Invitational and Cotton Stakes. An ownership change side-lined the stud somewhat early in his show career until ATOC Partners, LLC acquired him in February, 2019. He had limited private breedings 2016 through 2018 and was offered to the public for the first time in 2019.
