Surrounding Sleepy Sheep Ranch, 250 acres of meandering wooded trails, gentle creeks, and idyllic ponds beckon the stable’s equine residents and their riders. Before the 2.5-hour trail ride, an equestrian expert acquaints rider and beast with a 30-minute introductory ride in the ranch’s sandy arena and a lightning round of Love Connection questions. A guide then leads up to eight pioneers on a ride beneath the tranquil boughs of recently expanded wooded trails, followed by a car ride to nearby Lenoir-Sage vineyards if desired. Riders ogle roaming Texas longhorns and historic Blanton Cemetery before dismounting on the shores of a picturesque pond. While lounging beside the serene waters, groups dine on a choice of steak or chicken grilled over an open fire by their escort, and pair fresh desserts with sips of wine. While visitors dine, horses remain comfortably tied to a hitching post, chomping on grass and spreading gossip about the love lives of the ranch’s painted desert sheep.

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.
