Ramblings from around the Ranch

Exciting things are happening here this week. The cement was poured for the patio of the pool on Tuesday (at right), the cabinets are going into Big Agnes and Little Agnes, the carpet was laid in Sand and Saddle and the list goes on and on. Besides all the hustle and bustle of the construction we are all busy getting geared up for the winter season. Steve and Kelli are up in the Adventure Center today getting the skis and snowshoes out from summer storage. Terry and Reid are working on getting all the foals registered with the American Quarter Horse Association, so a little office time for them in between working horses. Ben and Nathan are shuttling our fleet of Ranch Suburbans in and out from Steamboat for servicing. And I kept Bill busy this morning picking out bedding ensembles for some updates in the cabins. He wasn’t thrilled to spend his time doing that, but the guy has great taste!

We all though the snow we got last week was the start of winter, but beautiful weather came back this week and we are once again enjoying sunshine and blue skies. Soon enough we’ll be covered with snow, so we’ll take this fall weather for a little longer. As long as we’re fully blanketed by mid-December for opening day of our winter guest ranch season, all of us are happy!
