|Well, maybe not the real center of the universe but close
enough for me.
Herd Rock Ranch is home to Work In Progress Studios,
various forms of wildlife (deer, raccoons, opossums, rabbits,
wild hogs, armadillos, roadrunners, and even a fox or two),
some cows, and of course my wife Donna and myself. We
all manage to peacefully coexist in the beautiful piney woods
of East Texas.
Herd Rock Ranch is located in Houston County (not to be
confused with the City of Houston in Harris County). We
are about twelve miles from the City of Grapeland (home of the
annual Peanut Festival every fall).
There is also the Gospel Bluegrass Festival at Salmon Lake
Park over Memorial Day Weekend and the Giant Bluegrass
Festival over Labor Day Weekend. Nearby Crockett is home
to the Annual World Championship Fiddler's Contest.
In addition to the music there is Christmas on the Square
in downtown Crockett each November. A big event with
lots of arts, crafts, food, music and fun for all. The City of
Lovelady hosts the Love Fest each February (food, arts,
crafts, games, music and fun for all).
