Don't forget the carrots!

It is important to know that the ranch is located off the power grid, things are a bit "primitive" for some to handle! We certainly do appreciate any help you may want to give to the burros! We recommend that visits be planned between October and May as the summer months are very difficult with the no AC, fly issues and also rattle snakes. It would be a more pleasant experience for you without having to contend with those issues!

Hugs, brushing and carrots are always welcomed if you want to come visit:)

If you do decide to stop by,be sure to give a call/text prior to coming up here! Diana can be reached at 760-384-8523. Texting  is more reliable. Diana is more apt to receive a text message vs a phone call. Lately her voicemail messages come over all garbled...She recommends texting! The signal at the ranch is very "iffy" to say the least! 

Questions or Interested in volunteering?

We'd love to  hear from you!
