2014 was incredibly fast and full of changes. It started with one of the coldest winters we have ever experienced followed by a very wet spring and a beautiful summer. Our trail rides were busy from the early June and kept going through the end of September and we welcomed many overnight guests that we now call family from all over the country. Our cattle herd expanded this summer and was a little different than the usual. We decided to take on heifers instead of our usual steers to pasture for the season and it proved to be more work. Our cattle drives were more difficult trying to keep the ladies together and they seem to find ways to maneuver through pastures and fences that we previously thought was impossible. Nonetheless, it was a successful year both for the heifers and our own beef cows.
2015 has started with a bang with the announcement of more kids! Pat and Beth have welcomed Hunter, Christian, and Hudson into their family full time, and Kendra and Trampas have announced they will have another arrival towards the end of May. Our growing families will definitely make the ranch a busy and happy place!
Becca Shelbourn will be returning for the 2015 summer season and our friends Linda (from Germany) and Luis (from Brazil) will be joining us for parts of the summer as well. We look forward to seeing you all again this summer and fall and hope the winter doesn’t draw on too long.
Our weeks are continuing to be filled, so call us soon to book your ranch vacation! (307) 467-5612
