Winter Time At Our Wyoming Dude Ranch

We just returned from the DRA Convention in Wickenburg, AZ and this is what was waiting for us, over 10 inches of much needed snow!  It was a little bit of an adjustment after being in 60 plus degree weather, but we’re glad to be back at the Ranch.

We’re all catching up on what we missed while we were gone, but Courtney was in the office to answer questions and take reservations.  In addition to being in the office, Courtney also took care of our dinner guests along with our chef Mark.  We’ve had a busy January for dinners, which we serve Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights and we offer brunch on Sunday.  We’re also getting bookings for our bed & breakfast, so be sure to contact us if you’re interested in a weekend getaway.  We just finished remodeling the upstairs of the Main House for use this winter and for the upcoming dude season.  Photos will be posted soon!

August 4th-5th!

August 7, 2012 by Jeff Way

What a crazy weekend it’s been! First, we had our Calcutta on the fourth.  Lots of people turned out and the bidding got pretty fierce! Afterwards, everyone stuck around for some dancing great live music by local band The Libby Creek Original! We had a theme of “70’s Prom” so it was great to see all the fringe and sparkly outfits.

Calcutta Bidding!

We found these 60/70’s server dresses in storage!

After some dancing, we had a rap battle. Yes, a rap battle! August Kern (staff) vs Charles Engle (dude). It was hilarious and a big hit.

The next day we had our roping down at Gentry Field. A big thank you to Sheridan Drum & Bugle Corps who opened for us!

 

The results were:

Shelby Mann and Gavin Flint won first, Weston and Tamara Mann 2nd, and Roger Ross and Justin Hammerich took third! Fastest time went to Rhett and Gavin Flint at 5:59!! More pictures can be found in our album on facebook!

August is almost here!

The summer is going by fast but August is looking to be a great month.  We have our Calcutta on the 4th followed by what promises to be an amazing day of roping on the 5th.  We will see you all there!

There are also a lot of old faces returning that we’re thrilled to have coming back another season!  We really treasure our guests and we’re so glad to have so many coming back year after year!

We’ll update again soon with some pictures and more August news but make sure to check our Facebook page for day to day updates!

 

July Events!

July 19, 2012 by Jeff Way

July is looking to be a great month for us! Earlier this month we had our July Roping. It was a great night of bidding at our Calcutta, followed by an awesome day of team roping!  Wheaton Williams and Stan Williams took first place with Lonny Gibson and Stan Williams taking second and Luke and Tom Morss third. If you missed this one we have another in August! Here’s a couple pictures of Wheaton and Stan Williams and another of Rhett Flint and Nate Schmeiser!

There were also a lot of our guests who attended the Sheridan WYO Rodeo.  We participated in the Bed Races for the first time this year! We didn’t place but now we know how it works so we’re hoping to come back strong next year.

We also put on our first Cowboy Polo game of the season at the Bighorn Equestrian Center!  T.J. Ferguson, Nate Schmeiser, and Rhett Flint played for our team. We played HF Bar but sadly lost by one point (2-1). Oh well, we’ll get them next game! Check our facebook page for pictures!
