In August, he will release his upcoming book: YOU CAN’T CRACK THAT EGG TWICE, Sage Advice from a Real Texas Cowboy. On deck for later in the Fall is Scott’s second book, SOVEREIGN REIN, A Collection of 14 Real-Life Cowboy Stories.

There’s a story behind our Lightning K Ranch brand, and we’d like to share it with you: My family and I were down at the barn on our daughter’s first birthday when out of nowhere, I was struck by lightning while holding my one-year-old daughter down through my head and out the very arm and hand I had my daughter in.
Living through such a one-in-a-million event puts life and what truly matters into perspective. We felt we needed to incorporate this symbol – the lightning strike – with a logo recognizing our family, and thus, our Lightning K Ranch brand was born.
