best of Week 7-40 Black Mountain Ranch saw a full house again this past week. We had about 40 guests, with 9 returning. We had to deal with quite a lot of unpexptected weather this past week, from thunderstorms to hail, and then right on hot summertime conditions. Fortunately, the weather didn't didn't dampen our guest's enthusiasm one bit! Even when it rained the kids made some cool bracelets in the leatherwork class, and the adults brushed up on their dancing skills with some line dancing lessons in the saloon! YEEHAW! We always know how to make the most out of very high county situation. Everyone loved the cattle class lessons in the arena, and we then put them to good use on the cattle drive. We recently bought four new horses for the ranch, and these added to the 9 we bought from Missouri have now been added to the herd. All are doing very well, and are being used by wranglers and guests alike! best of Week 7-16 best of Week 7-12 best of Week 7-10 best of Week 7-7best of Week 7-24    best of Week 7-30 best of Week 7-35 best of Week 7-36  best of Week 7-42 best of Week 7-43
