Beckoning to Sleepy Sheep Ranch’s four-legged residents and their handlers, 250 acres of wooded trails, gentle creeks, and idyllic ponds stretch beyond the fences of a scenic, outdoor arena. Cowpokes begin their approximately three-hour cattle-wrangling session in the arena, learning how to properly move cows forward, backward, and in perfect figure eights. A hearty meal of steak and vegetables fuels freshly minted ranch hands as they venture out to a picturesque pasture to shepherd live cattle into a new feeding area. After the session, customers can mount one of the ranch’s easygoing horses for a complimentary trail ride that meanders through lush landscapes teeming with more greenery than a wallet full of envious singles.
Sleepy Sheep Ranch
Leafy trees throw cooling shade over Sleepy Sheep Ranch’s zigzagging trails as horseback riders and their steeds trot past ponds and trickling creeks. When not escorting riders around the ranch’s maze of riding trails, resident horses and their goat companions frolic in a sprawling pasture, where both experienced and fledgling equestrians can saddle up their own horses or those that live at the ranch. Sleepy Sheep Ranch provides board and care for local equines whose owners don’t have the space and for local mustangs lying low after losing a road race to a golf cart. Serious riders can peruse a for-sale selection of livestock, which includes a handful of stallions and boisterous goats whose iron stomachs allow them to eat not only their own share of food, but the horses’ and compost bins’ as well.
