The Story of Alice: Our Newest, Littlest Member of the CLU Herd

C Lazy U - The Story of Alice

 

As you might have heard, we recently got a little surprise here on the C Lazy U Ranch. We’d like you to meet baby Alice, the newest, littlest member C Lazy U - Aliceof the C Lazy U herd!The story of how C Lazy U got Alice is a bit funny.C Lazy U recently purchased a horse, Belle. When we got her, we thought Belle was just really well fed. Boy were we wrong! On the morning of August 26 our wranglers woke up, checked on the horses and found this little beauty.

One of our guests who was visiting the ranch that day shared his experience with Alice on Facebook:

“I was there waiting for the jingle when a wrangler carried her over the bridge, followed by her mom … spectacular view.”

The Story of Alice’s Name

Getting a new horse is always an exciting event, but it’s made even more special when we can name our newest addition. Most of C Lazy U’s horses come to us with names already, so this experience was a special treat.

We posted about our brand new little horse on Facebook and Instagram and asked our extended C Lazy U family to help us name her. There were a ton of great suggestions, including:

  • Meadow – Because she was born out in the West Meadow
  • Feather or Star – For the lovely star on her head, which many people think looks like a feather
  • Smokey, Shadow, Twilight, Chrome, Midnight, Stormy – Inspired by her beautiful grayish color

But in the end, one name rose above the rest. As soon as we saw it suggested we knew it was the one: Alice.

Naming the horse Alice was inspired by a special young guest who visited the ranch with her family earlier this year – Alice. Alice came to C Lazy U for her “Make A Wish” program and we just loved her so much we thought it was perfect to name our cutest little horse after her.

“Great family vacation”

The C Lazy U provided the experience my family will never forget. The kids program, food, activities, cabins and staff were all outstanding. Our family learned to ride and compete in a show at the end of the week stay.
