Join us at the ranch, the week of August 19th, 2012! It's a lot more than spectacular horseback riding, especially this week!
On Monday August 20th we are going to Durango for the start of the 2012 USA Pro Cycling Challenge! Wow, how exciting to be part of this international event!
Don't forget we do have incredible mountain biking at and surrounding the ranch too. From mild to wild, come "ride the ridges" with WTR mountain bikes or bring your own!
If you want to ride hard, ride often, ride slow or ride relaxed either on a horse or on a bike, well, "you got it, dude"!
Of course you can always enjoy the same daily incredible horseback riding, from cattle work to incredibly beautiful half or full days rides in the largest wilderness region in the mainland United States!
As many of you remember we collected suggestions to name our filly (baby girl horse).
She was such a cutie running around the front pasture, getting all the attention and hanging out with Pepper, Piper, Chica and her mom!
By the way to clarify a foal is a baby horse, a filly is a girl and a colt is a boy!
Anyway we had such a darn hard time trying to pick a name for this cutie! So, we came up with a plan!
We thought to ourselves, what can we do? Oh cool, we'll get our friends and guests involved!
We narrowed it down to "children's entries only" (our WTR kiddos) and then put them in a hat and pulled out 14 names.
Here is where we need your help. Now until November 30th, we would like for you to email, facebook or call with your vote on the name to choose from the list below. That name with the most votes will win and we will crown our little girl (now not so little) with her new name.
We will announce the name the foal on December 2nd, 2012!
Names pulled from the hat (Gene's hat of course!) are:
Cora Gaelic, Wild Flower, Chica, Raven, Moonbeam, Shadow, Pina (pronounced pine-a), Cocoa, Kitten, Sunshine, Lae-Lee, Maddie, Chloe and Dixie Doodle
So there you have it. Please email, fax, phone or facebook and let us know your vote!
Of course children are encouraged to participate in this event! So what shall her name be?
