We have quite a variety of critters here at our ranch.
These are some other members of our ever-growing family.

The Horses
We enjoy our horses, for riding both around the ranch and occasionally on trails.

Cinder, 03/31/10
Heart of Choice

Registered with:   American Saddlebred Association, USEF Lifetime, USDF Lifetime
Pedigree:   Heart O'Santana x Attache's Liquid Asset
DOB:   1999
Gender:   Mare
Size:   15.2 hands

Professionally trained in dressage, Cinder had a successful show career early in life. She now enjoys life as a leisure riding horse. We are delighted and privileged this beautiful mare joined our family from our friends at Timber Ghost Stables.
Ace, 03/31/10

DOB:   2000
Gender:   Gelding

Ace is a big, beautiful black and white paint. His gaited movement is poetry in motion and a joy to ride.
Fowl Things
Our fowl are allowed free-range on the ranch

We have a moderate size flock of about chickens of various breeds, including: Cuckoo Marans, Blue Marans, Red and Black Sexlink, Barred Rock, Buff Orpington, and few others of mixed and purebred heritage. While we primarily keep the chickens for eggs, on occasion we allow a hen to sit a next and raise chicks.
Coral Blue Guineas

We have a small flock of Guinea Fowl. All of them are Coral Blue colored. They are really great bug eaters and very useful to have around!
Cotton Patch Geese

In 2014 we added a trio of Cotton Patch geese to our ranch. Since then, we have added several birds and now have a gaggle of about eight geese. We hope to be part of the preservation of this disappearing breed of heritage geese.

Read more about Cotton Patch geese and their critical conservation status at The Livestock Conservatory.
Bourbon Red Turkeys
Bourbon Red Turkeys

In 2010, we added a small group of Bourbon Red turkeys home to the ranch. This flashy little group enjoys free-ranging around our property with our other fowl and provides us with hours of amusement.

We have also added two Blue Slate turkey hens to our ranch; they hang out with both the guineas and turkeys.
