Spring has arrived!  Green pastures, blossoms and baby animals.  What more could you ask for?

Redbuds are some of the first trees to blossom.


Spring rains get our streams flowing.

Spring brings new life to the ranch, mostly goats. 🙂  Next month we should be adding a foal to out ranch nursery list.

There is never a shortage of baby goats during our spring season.


The new piglets are some of the favorites in the petting zoo.




The Dogwoods bloom at the end of March and first part of April.


The Honey Locust blossoms have filled the Canyon with it's sweet smell.

The start of the season the grass starts to green but the blossoms and leaves have not started yet.

Spring Season + Spring Break = KIDS!

...and their parents. 🙂

Waiting for the "riders" to arrive at the cookout site.

Hints of greener days and leaves starting to show on this hat and jacket day.

Spring at Horseshoe Canyon Ranch brings baby goats - lots of baby goats.

Like last year we had a litter of Anatolian puppies born April 6 - there are 10.

The blossoms come out and the grass starts to grow - Dogwood tree

Barry Johnson coming back from the wrangle.

Great day for fishing.

Danny wanted a photo with his fish but the fish was a little too much to stand close to.

Jason (climbing guide) - wet ropes = heavy.

At the first rain drop, Danny and I packed up our fishing gear and made it back nice and dry.

Rain or shine there are always barn activities.

Oops - Jason slipped on the rope lowering Angie down.

Sloan could go no higher, the ceiling was in the way.

Spring is one of our favorite times on the ranch (next to fall). It is ever changing and most of all full of great families – new and old.  There is plenty of time to come and enjoy this wonderful and interesting time of the year with us.  It’s not over yet.
