Riata Ranch Branded Ornament
This beautiful ~3" wooden ornament makes a great decoration for around the home and ranch and each one is personally hand-cut from wood on our ranch then branded by one of our Riata gals. We then add a layer of Shellac for a lovely sheen finish and lace it with natural twine. A great gift for any Western culture lover!
