And We’re Off!

“Let’s go up!”
Echoes the wrangler’s cry in the distance of the crisp summer morning.
“Clip” “clop” go the hooves on the dirt ranch driveway-
180 horses snort and whinney as they make their way into the corrals,
Ready for breakfast.

A dart of green here A flash of red there
The hummingbirds have arrived,
Whistling their happy tune as they chase one another,
feeling safe to play

A canopy of neon green speckles-
The Aspens have leafed.

“Who’s on Shoshone?”
“Hold your reins like ice-cream cones.”
“I’m scared!”
“A long time ago a man named Shorty lived on the ranch.”
“I said a boom-chick-boom!”
“Hey, wanna come to my cabin during cabin time?”
“Can we lope again?”
“Mud fight!”
“This is awesome!”
“Welcome to the C Lazy U SHODEO!”
“This is my address, let’s be pen pals.”

The sun peaks down behind the mountain,
Illuminating,
For a moment,
The ranch,
In a pool of gold.

Smoke risING
As kids giggle and roast s’mores
Around the campfire
And watch a cowboy brand their boots.
A souvenir of their stay.

Happy Tails
To our first week of guests, and welcome to our second!

From the Horse's Mouth

“We want to tell the world about this place!”

My Husband of 40 years and I spent a whole week at the C Lazy U Ranch over Labor Day weekend and haven't stopped talking about it since. We have two adult daughters and can't wait to go back and take them back with us! We are 72 & 69 years old respectively but we are very active and love horses!
