Winter Pasture

November 24, 2015
Today marks the start of our winter season.  It’s not because we have enough snow to set ski trails.  It’s not because this is Thanksgiving week.  It’s because the horses are safely in their winter pasture. We usually target the 1st of December for moving them down t...

Fall at the Ranch - a staff perspective

October 24, 2015
There really aren’t many things as beautiful as the Rocky Mountains in the autumn. The sky glitters pristinely blue, and the aspen leaves are a continual flutter. At present, the mountains don’t bear snow, but it’s certain to come soon.  It’s nearly the end of guest sea...

New "Old Wagon"

June 23, 2015
When we took our buckboard out of storage this spring, it was apparent that it was unfit for another summer. Most of the wood had become so rotten as to be unsafe. Our maintenance man, Mark, did a fantastic job of completely rebuilding the frame, bed, dash, and seat of the wagon with oak boards. Now...

More Horses

May 28, 2015
A former staff member of ours alerted us  to a working cattle ranch over toward Walden, CO, about a 1 hour drive from Latigo, that has a sizable herd of registered Morgan horses. They are willing to sell some to us. So, yesterday we bought 11 horses to replenish our herd. Six of us went over: J...

Spring Feat with Feet

April 14, 2015
Throughout the year our horses’ hooves continue to grow and  need to be trimmed periodically - just like your fingernails. This is usually no big deal in the summer when we gather the herd and bring the horses up to the barn almost every day.  Winter is another story. At this time ...

Dusky Grouse Alarm

March 31, 2015
It certainly feels and sounds like spring. Lisa and I were awakened by a loud fluttering sound just outside our window. This is common as it begins to warm up and the snow melts out. A blue grouse, specifically a dusky grouse, struts around beneath our window and makes a dramatic fluttering sound wi...

Latigo Ranch: A place of much laughter - and really good bacon. It seems like just a few minutes between falling asleep and having my dreams interrupted by my alarm going off. *sigh* I quickly slide the “stop alarm” key on my iPod (there are six other girls still sleeping in the bunkhou...

Spring In Layers

March 19, 2015
Our first day of spring looks different than most of the rest of the world’s, but that’s what we’ve come to expect living at 9,000 feet above sea level. Hannah took this photo just outside our downstairs door at home. The deck keeps snow from accumulating on this one little patch o...

“Great things are done when men and mountains meet.” ~William Blake While I suspect this statement isn’t always true, it proved so for me this past summer.  A little over a year ago, I’d never heard of Latigo Ranch or Kremmling, Colorado, and I certainly had no idea what...

Wild Turkeys

January 29, 2015
We’ve had a very mild January in Latigo standards; afternoon temperatures often in the 30s and not a new snowflake to be found. Not only have we found it very pleasant, but the wildlife has as well. Early last week, Nate was grooming ski trails and saw two moose hanging out by the snowcat shop...

‘Thank you’ just seems so inadequate…It was honestly one of the best vacations I can remember.

We loved Latigo Ranch! It was our best vacation ever! Cabins were comfortable, food was scrumptious and the wranglers were wonderful.
