New Horse arrives at Chestnut Pinto Ranch

General George arrived at Chestnut Pinto Ranch on May 30, 2016.  George is a Mustang from the Paisley Desert and went through the 100 Days of training Competition with Stacey Riggs and won RESERVE CHAMPION! 

Vicki is no stranger to Mustangs.  She lived on the Warm Springs Indian Reservation in her twenties and had Mustangs.  She ran the stables at Kah-nee-ta Resort taking out rides and tending the horses (all Mustangs) and on her free time she road the rim rock above the Deschutes River. 

Vicki has ridden him and lunges him on a regular basis.

2018 Garden

Winter, late February 2018

Prune, Weed, Repair, Prune Weed, Weed, Weed, Prune, and weed:

Rose before pruning

 The theory is to prune your roses right after 
 President's Day.  Cut way back since they will
 grow to be bigger than the end of last season.  

Same rose after pruning to about 8 inches high
