Radio Silence

25 Aug

Gettin' ready to wrangle some Dudes!

We’ve been a little slack in our postin’ the past couple of days. Thats because we’re getting ready for the Jolly Ranch / Dr. Sketchy’s / Trap\door traveling caravan planned for Sunday. A dude ranch has to be prepared to receive the tenderfoots and show ’em a good time! So we hope you’ll stop by on Aug 29th at 11:00am to participate in the fun. We’ll have our historical drawing tour through the pass and then come back to the Jolly Ranch for the souvenir store, dude lessons, maybe a ghost story or three and some grub.

If you want to know a little more before you come out, be sure to catch Trap\door Radio, Thursday at 2pm on CKXU. If you can’t pick up the channel or don’t have a radio you can listen on-line too!  The Dude and I were interviewed today by Magoo via skype.

I think we gave good radio.

A Dude’s Life

Rocky heads out for another day of ranch duties:

Duty calls

From the Jolly Ranch promotional literature:

Daily chores are part of the dude ranch experience.  Dudes are able to get involved in all aspects of Ranch life.  Here, Rocky works outside of the main studio.

Newest Ponies! Bonita and Alejandro

Fernando was lonely, so we ventured to Coleman today to purchase him some pony company. We were lucky to find the twins – Bonita and Alejandro! They are velvety soft!
