As a guest ranch that’s been in operation for 90+ years we’ve seen a lot of different people come and go, all with different riding experiences to talk of, and all at different riding abilities; but, something that we hear, facetiously, from almost all of our guests is that regardless of your level of riding… Continue Reading »

Quadruped of the Month- June

And a second brand on her shoulder

So it’s taken me a little while to pick June’s quadruped of the month, but we’ve got a lot of terrific candidates.  After much debate, however, I’ve decided on this beauty (we call her Rose):     Now Rose is a very interesting horse as she already has several brands on her (if you’ve ever… Continue Reading »

Howdy blog readers! My little hooves are barely able to write this blog post today, as the snow is tummy deep here (my tummy… which usually only skims the surface of the snow, but these days it’s creating a nice gully behind me as I walk… not yours).

The young man met Mr. and Mrs. Clause last year, and got a special personalized greeting from them again this year. He must have been a very good boy last year!

Well, the holidays have come and gone here at the ranch, and things have started to “quiet down” around here.
