“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!
