Wonder what happens during the winter months at Horseshoe Canyon?  Projects… Oh you mean what does the livestock do during the winter months?  Not much.  They get a well deserved break after a season of trail rides.  As you can see below, in the photos, the horses just kind of hang out and eat hay.

Thistle - hairy winter pony. She will be one in April. Time goes by so fast. It seems like we were just waiting for her to be born.

The goats are equally as busy  this time of the year with the exception of them “baking” more goats – they should start kidding in April.

Lisa is starting to show. She is known for having triplets.

We always have a few early kiddings - this little guy was a day old in the photo, born Jan. 23.

This little girl is his twin sister. I have never known a goat to have twins that looked just alike. It is not unusual for them to be born different colors.

Occasionally we have surprise kids - either from purchasing a goat that turns out to be pregnant, how this kids came about or from some unauthorized breeding of young buck/billies. Which we frown upon at Horseshoe Canyon.

Every fall we look forward to when the LA Center for the Blind returns to the ranch for one of their annual adventure trips.  This year was extremely enjoyable and we can’t want for their return again next year.

This past year I came across the blurb website.  It is a wonderful website to make family photo/scrap books online.  As I was riding the trail the other day with some guests, I thought, “Wouldn’t it be neat to have stories and photos from past guests and make a book from that.”  So, send us your favorite Horseshoe Canyon memory and by all means include a few photos.  This book will be for guests to look at while visiting the ranch.

Mail stories and photos to: barryandamy@horseshoecanyonduderanch.com  please include your name along with family member’s names and when you visited the ranch.

Thanks!
