From the Black Range Mountains of New Mexico to the Oregon wilderness, memories await to be made

Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch
Winston, New Mexico
(575) 772-5157

Serenity and solitude are concepts not often discussed, much less experienced, amid the turmoil of life in the 21st century. You’ll find them at Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch! Here, beneath the tall Ponderosa pines, in the cool higher elevations of the Black Range Mountains of southwest New Mexico, the quiet is such that you can hear the approach of an eagle from the beat of the air beneath his wings. Large herds of elk frequent the meadows, streams and lakes nearby.

Preparing for breeding success

- March 1st, 2021

By Daniel H. Grove, DVM

Well, it is March and breeding season is here. I thought it might be a great time to talk about equine reproduction and some of the options available to horse owners in our area. Things to consider in preparation of getting your mare in foal are the mare preparation, how you will receive your semen, and who is going to be inseminating the mare.

Reckless gets a spa day

War hero’s memorial good as new

From Horsetrader staff reports

The crew of Sculpture Services of Colorado — Jo and Davis DeDecker and Mary Casey — visited the Sgt. Reckless monument at Camp Pendleton Jan. 30 to give her a “spa day” and return the Korean War hero to her stunning self after four years of facing the coastal elements.

CAMP PENDLETON – As author Robin Hutton visited the Marine Corps base here last September for the 70th anniversary celebration of the Inchon Landing, she was looking forward to walking past the striking monument of Sgt. Reckless — the fruit of years’ worth of dedication of both her and artist Jocelyn Russell. As she neared the Pacific Views Event Center, disturbance set in.

Rush to judgement

- March 1st, 2021

By Sheryl Lynde | Horsetrader columnist

After careful consideration, a buyer selects a horse for purchase. Within 30 days of ownership, however, the buyer notices subtle changes in behavior. With time, the unwanted changes become more prevalent, and new vices surface.

The buyer calls the seller for advice, only to hear, “well, the horse never did that here.”

Frustrated, the buyer begins to feel that perhaps the horse was misrepresented. The horse they now ride is not the horse they rode while at the seller’s.

Who is right? They both are.
