The C Lazy U Ranch Blog

And We’re Off!

“Let’s go up!” Echoes the wrangler’s cry in the distance of the crisp summer morning. “Clip” “clop” go the hooves on the dirt ranch driveway- 180 horses snort and whinney as they make their way into the corrals, Ready for breakfast. A dart of green here A flash of red there The hummingbirds have arrived,… Continue Reading »

New Pastures and Homemade Barbeque

From my personal journal last night: The smell of barbecue fills the air as the first Patio House cookout of the year gets underway (smoked wild bore leg I’ve been told… *gulp* they don’t eat donkeys too, do they?!); compounded with the sunny days and warm temperatures we’ve had these last few days, and the… Continue Reading »

Fencing at Twilight

A cool breeze blows through the Aspen stand and up over the saddle where two cowboys cut and remove winter fence, in preparation for the coming summer months. Twilight has descended in the quiet valley that plays home to our beloved ranch, allowing the boys to fence without breaking a sweat. The smell of snow… Continue Reading »

Winter Elk Herd

Often times Mother Nature feels the need to show us how lucky we are to live at the C Lazy U Ranch (as if we need the reminder!), but the way she provided that example today was a truly rare thing- now, we’ve seen the elk herd on the mesa an innumerable amount of times,… Continue Reading »

Winter Photo Shoot- We’re Stars… or at least I am…

So, Dick’s Sporting Goods came out to do a photo shoot at the ranch a few weeks ago for their new hunting line, and below are some of my favorite shots; they realized, like so may people do, what an amazing staff we have, so I’m pretty sure you’ll recognize the models. You’ll notice that… Continue Reading »

Fresh Powder Day!

We love pow pow days here at the ranch- I personally love them because I enjoy¬† rolling around in the snow to cool myself off… because I’m hot. What? Do you have any idea how much fur a Sicilian Donkey has- it’s like being in a broiler all the time! Anyway, here are a couple… Continue Reading »

Tebow Time (and Comfort Food) at the Ranch

Well, Tim Tebow may have lost in Saturday’s game against the Patriots (it took everybody at the ranch a while to get over that one, admittedly, but I heard the menu below helped people eat their sorrows away), but we still love him around here (yes, yes, even me, though heaven only knows why… I… Continue Reading »

The Perfect Storm

Thanks so much to everyone that came to stay at the ranch this holiday season- I call it the perfect storm because there really was just SO much going on (you were a very active, fun group!), but we love it that way and wouldn’t change a thing! We are so lucky and honored to… Continue Reading »

T’was The Night Before Christmas (Ranch Style)

T”was the night before Christmas and all through the ranch All the people were stirring, it looked like a dance. The ornaments were hung on the Christmas Tree with care And carols, sweet music, filled the air.   Then what to the children’s eyes would appear, but Santa, yes Santa, with his red suite and… Continue Reading »
