HITCHING UP THE TEAM
Here is our team of seven-year-old Percheron mares, Reba and Rachael, getting ready for a days work on the ranch.
HORSE BARN AND CORRALS
A pic of the main horse barn and corrals built in the late 1900's. All lumber for this barn was cut and milled in our local area. This pic was taken the morning after a January snow storm, notice some of the Percheron & Quarter horses finishing up their morning hay by the corral fence.
DASHING THRU THE SNOW
My wife and a group of her friends enjoying a brisk sleigh ride over the snow covered fields.
Our ranch is also home to a few photographic Longhorn cows. In their younger days they served as roping calves for my son. As they grew older, he released them into the mother cow herd. Lucy (the Longhorn cow pictured here) will have another calf running along side her this spring.
DRAFT HORSE HARNESS
Draft horse harness and collars hung behind the work horses in their tie-stalls. This barn was built like the old style horse barns of the 1800's.
Hat, chinks, spurs, lead rope, halter, curry comb are just a few of the many items hanging on the outside of our tack room wall.
IRON BRIDGE CROSSING
One of only a few old iron bridges left in the county. Weight limit 6 tons is posted on the sign. Crossing here with a young team and the ranch dogs.
