When is the last time that you looked at your surroundings like a child might?   This week has been a bit challenging on my ranch and I really needed to unwind.  So, I decided to visit the Ramah State Wildlife Area.  It is north of Colorado Springs on Highway 24.  It is located between the small ...
This week, I have been learning about pigs.   These three little piggies are from Kansas.  They now live at my ranch.   This was Day #1 one at home.   They were shy at first.    These little piggies are Colorado show pigs.   They are not little.  They are buff and muscular.   This snapshot taken ...

Snow Day for the Horses.      The last few days have been spring like here in the Colorado Springs area. The sun has been shining and the temperatures have been in the 50's.   The snow from our big storm about two weeks ago has almost completely melted.    So, I can now enjoy a few of the snow pi...
