Williams Homestead Ranch...WHR...nestled in the "Piney Woods" of East Don and Sue Williams with DJTexas, is a small operation for breeding and raising Quality Registered Black Brangus Cattle and ABCA Border Collie Puppies out of working stock. It is owned and managed by Don and Sue Williams with Sam's help. The ranch was moved from Brownsville, Texas when we retired. The idea was to be able to enjoy the East Texas pine trees, have a place to ride the horses, and enough grass to grow our own hay. We had no idea how busy we were going to be just keeping things up. We moved 19 horses and about 12 Border Collies. Just keeping the place in order, caring for and feeding the animals is enough to do!

We had bred and raised Registered Quarter Horses and Paso Finos for more than 27 years and Border Collies for over 20 years; however, when the ranch was moved to East Texas and we started raising Registered Brangus cattle, we realized that something had to give. So.....we decide to get out of the horse business and just raise Registered Black Brangus Cattle and Border Collie Puppies.

Since we are a small ranch, our focus is on breeding quality. Therefore, each animal is very important and has a reason for being on our ranch. We maintain a strict routine for feeding and health care.

In 2012 we embarked on a multi-season calf crop running 2 separate herds with 2 different bulls. Now that 2018 is here, it is time for a change. We can no longer manage 2 herds and are starting to cut back to just 1 herd. It will take some time to work out, but we will get there.

In the Border Collie department: We kept a Black Tricolor male out of Tootsie and CC (Sam) in 2015 and purchased a female (Dill) out of a a champion sheep herding male and bred her to Sam. She has had several litters of beautiful black tricolored puppies, Seal colored, and Sable puppies. Now we will be adding another female out of Molly and Pirate ( Shae ) in hopes that she and Doc will produce some awesome puppies.

Perhaps the biggest change for Don and I was the loss of our companion and friend, DJ in 2015. Sam is working to fill that void and is doing a good job.
