Home > What to expect > Our Horses and our People
We think getting to know our horses is a vital step in enjoying your stay at our Ranch.

Here we introduce the humans and the horses you'll be working with while staying on the Ranch. Each horse, like each person, has a unique and individual personality. Some are stoic, some quite, some gleeful and some are giddy - but each one is hand selected for this job.

Most of our Horses are older and enjoying "horse retirement" - which for a horse is a nice, leisurely walk 3 to 5 times per week with a friend on their back and plenty of good food and drink. We have a dedicated, kind and caring vet on call for all our animals, from cows to dogs and our horses are no exception. Our horses are often recruited from other working ranches and the cowboys whom they served with during long, hard workdays want them treated kindly and to enjoy their golden years.

Our people are no different - they work hard, believe in what we are doing and have dedicated great effort to seeing our Ranch and the innovative concepts we represent move forward.

Introducing a "Girl Named Sue"

We've all heard that Johnny Cash song - a boy named Sue... well, here we have a girl named Sue, and life sure is easy for a girl named Sue.

Sue is a real gem. She is nearly 22 years old and has "been there and done that" - very calm, very understanding and sweet eyes (look into them when you get here, you'll see what we mean). She has a sway back, so we are carful who gets on her. She can gather cows, shut gates, cross water, go up and down hills with no problem and stays calm in stressful situations.

The perfect "dude" horse, she loves to trail out and enjoy long walks. She has a very smooth gait (walking rhythm) and is loved by all.
