Echo River Ranch

Ranch Family

Echo River Ranch is privately owned. Our animals are our family.

We are not in the business of buying and selling animals. Nor are we in the business of animal rescue. But occasionally a new animal will come to the ranch. We are looking for the right fit, both for us and for the animal. We want the animals to fit in and be happy here.

This horse is very independent. He has been known to complain about the condition of the trails when he trips over roots or has to step over logs.

This horse will soon be one of the ranch favorites. He comes to the ranch after being run through local auction and ending up in the "unwanted" pen.

Stout and steady, this horse has history with both the Amish and a salad family. He has some secret scars that do not affect his love ability. But watch out for his licking as it will eventually lead to a nip.

On the shorter side, this horse is full of spirit and strength. He is constantly flipping his long mane to draw attention to himself. He is very smart and will take advantage of any opportunity to search pockets for treats.

This horse has character. He is entertaining and comical, a real show stopper! Big in personality, not in size. He is ridden only by the trail guide, no other riders are allowed to ride him.

Local Wildlife

Local wildlife is also abundant on the ranch. There are many bunnies, chipmunks, and birds. We are frequently visited by a bald eagle, an owl, doves, woodpeckers including a red-headed one, a raccoon, and a red hawk. Just off the property on the nearby trails, we have seen grouse and pheasant, deer, elk, coyote, bobcat, otter, black bear, and track of a cougar. Fox?
