Chaplain Dave Granade
Chaplain and Team Roper
Dave places his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ first in his life and his beautiful wife of 27 years Valerie, his 4 amazing children Ansley, Dylan, Joe, Haley and his Grandson Karter as his passion for life.
Dave's love for horses is a deep passion that started when he was 14 years old riding horses everyday after school with his friends, going on trail rides every weekend and he taught polo lessons one summer.
Dave is a Chaplain with Cowboys for Christ and preaches at various team roping events, churches, and has a cowboy church service and team roping practice at J316 Horses.
Barrel Racer / Team Roper
Ansley is a fierce competitor in the arena and sweet as can be outside. Ansley just started team roping and will be up to speed in no time.
Ansley has competed in barrel races all over the state of Texas. She raced for district 6 high school rodeo in barrels and poles.
Ansley is the biggest animal lover on planet earth and never forgets a dogs name that she has met. She works at a vet clinic and is going to college.
Valerie aka "Mama G" aka "GiGi" aka "Gazugee" is the backbone to making all this work.
After spending a lifetime raising our 4 children she is now raising all the 4 legged children here at J316 Ranch.
She handles all the riding lessons and keeps everyone in line.
Official J316 Greeter
When you arrive at the ranch, the first person you will meet is Duke.
He is our sweet German Shorthair Pointer.
He will welcome you and give you some free armor all for your tires.
Tough and sweet all in the same package.
Indy keeps all the roping steers, and horses in line.
She works cattle and gets on to the horses when they are not behaving.
Sydney and Valerie work closely together to make sure all things on the Ranch go smoothly.
It is a big task but Sydney aka "Toots" is the right women for the job!
Lottie is so loving and sweet but don't try any funny business. She makes sure we are all safe and sound and keeps the coyote's away from the cattel and horses at night.
