About Us

Welcome to The Buckaroo Fringe! We are Michael and Tracy & we are located in the heart of Central Montana on a remote Angus Cattle ranch where Michael manages the ranch and can be found preaching several Sunday's a month in a neighboring town. After spending months recovering from residual effects of a traumatic brain injury, in the spring of 2016, I crawled out of bed and began our entrepreneurial journey by creating MT Wild Rags. We built that company into an amazing business based off the creation of a superior product and founding values that we still believe strongly in. I could write a book on the things I've been able to experience and the people I've met through MT Wild Rags which has been nothing short of amazing. I am beyond grateful to the good Lord above and so incredibly proud of the business we built.

Having a company the size of MT Wild Rags can be both a blessing and a curse. After blowing out my achilles tendon in 2019, from the amount of sewing I was doing combined with the growth we were experiencing I was forced to outsource the majority of our manufacturing. Unfortunately, when you are forced to outsource, no matter how careful you are, quality suffers. Between that and the growth we experienced; I had been reduced from making an amazing product to managing the inventory and orders. After the murder of my father in the summer of 2021, an opportunity arose for us to make an exit from MT Wild Rags and after much prayerful consideration, we took it.

I (Tracy), joked for awhile that with the sale of MT Wild Rags, I would be retiring but when the reality of that started to set in, I quickly found myself starting a new business and well, here we are! Regardless of how much success MT Wild Rags had, I never lost sight of what an honor it was to have people spend their hard earned money on something I made so that pushed me to produce the absolute highest quality product possible.  I will continue to carry that driving principal with me into my new venture along with my passion for personal relationships with you, our amazing customers! It is exciting to be back at the beginning and to be actually sewing Wild Rags and making our products again! I have no doubt that this journey will be just as remarkable as our last. I've always pushed the box when creating products as evidenced in being the first Wild Rag Company to offer completely custom Wild Rags and Specialty Wild Rags with dogs, cows and horses on them ... so I'm very excited to be bringing my next idea to life! The WildRagBox which is a bimonthly subscription service that will feature custom Wild Rags and speciality slides! Thank you for your continued support of our new venture, we appreciate you more than you will ever know!
