Does XP Mean?
The name for our ranch
comes from our livestock brand,
which is a second generation tradition
in the Herbel family. It originated back
in the 70's
when Kent's dad Norman, along with his brother Clayton
wanted to come up with a brand that
would honor and glorify our
Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
"For every beast in the forest is mine,
and the cattle upon a thousand hills."
The XP is the Chi-Rho
(pronounced ki-row) symbol,
which is generally depicted as the Greek
(which looks like the Roman alphabet X)
superimposed over the elongated stem of the Greek letter rho (which looks like the Roman alphabet P).
The Chi and Rho are the first two letters
in the Greek word for Christ, XPICTOC
"I can do all things through Christ
who strengthens me."
