The first official day of spring is here! Although, it has already felt like spring for the past few weeks, as we have had some beautiful days here at Red Horse Mountain Ranch in beautiful North Idaho.  June 2nd is our first week of guests, and its time to start getting excited.  While winter may still throw us a few curve balls, several days of sunshine, mild weather, and greening pastures can make it easy to put that thought aside!With that, we can also look back on winter and realize that time flies! When the last of our guests and seasonal staff leave in the fall and the season comes to an end, the show must go on for our full-time staff.  Our herd of 80+ horses has spent the winter at our challenge course pasture, adjacent to the entrance gate of the ranch, and this means a daily trip up the mile drive to feed and walk the herd.Every day, rain-sleet-hail-snow, our winter wranglers drive the tractor up with two large bales to feed the herd.  For those lucky ones who have « Continue »

DSC02403

Well, this past week we completed our annual vet check, and we were grateful to have all of our winter staff members there to help!  While Jeannie works full time with the horses throughout the winter, we also had our part time wrangler Andrea, our maintenance guys: Jim, Rob, and Matt; our chef Lauren, our office manager Jody, and finally our ranch manager Cory up at Challenge Course Pasture helping to catch each and every horse for their annual worming, vaccination, and routine check.When you have a herd of 80+ horses, vet checks are extremely important!   Vetting each individual horse is crucial, especially with a busy summer season approaching, as a healthy horse means a happy horse; and of course a content horse means happy guests and staff members!

It should!  Here at Red Horse we know how lucky we are to be located in the middle of this beautiful northwest landscape, and we want to share this with our readers. For those of us who are lucky enough to call Red Horse Mountain Ranch home, or for those fortunate guests who have shared time here with us, we know what an amazing place this is, and it wouldn’t be the same if we weren’t located here in the Idaho Pandhandle.
