Day 4

We started looking at ranches on day 4. We had 2 lined up to look at.
Ranch 1 was 5515 acres with a small house and older barns. The ranch was cross fenced into about 16 fields with sizes varying from 20 acres to 1020 acres.
There was a small pond/lake on the property along with a large sub-irrigated hay meadow.
Windmills abound on all the ranches.
Ranch 2 was 3778 acres with another section of 7541 acres that could be purchased or rented. There were 2 houses, a hired help house and a large brick house, also several barns (2 new) and outbuildings.
This ranch had a huge sub-irrigated hay meadow.
It also had a lake that was being drained through a canal system and pump.
You can see this would all be a drastic change from where we are.
Of course if you are in Merriman stop at the Sand Cafe. The salad bar is excellent.

Looks and sounds like you had a great time. Love the pics of the ranches. If you need a ranch hand, keep me in mind. I would work for cheap just to enjoy the view.LOL
