Jeff Williams has started thousands of colts over the last several decades for some of the best-known ranches around, but the string of Beggs Cattle Company two year-olds currently in his lot are the last big set of colts Williams will ride.
The Thompson Ranch traveled from Munday, Texas, down to Alpine to win the 2017 Big Bend Ranch Rodeo last weekend.
The Big Bend Ranch Rodeo has two full go-rounds, each with five events. Thompson Ranch, which is made up of cowboys Tyler Thompson, Kolton Burnett, Chace Thompson and Chad Williams, scored points in each event in both go-rounds. Thompson Ranch, which was established in 1943, is a cow-calf outfit owned by Larry Thompson and managed by Tyler Thompson.
