Trey Cochran Is Coming Back…

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2008

We have filled one of our wrangler positions when Trey Cochran saw our note on the website and wrote us immediately. He wrangled here in the Fall & Winter of 2005 and Spring of 2006. He is very experienced in the rodeo circuit and has been a wrangler on several ranches. We look forward to him returning back to Stagecoach Trails. He will be here from February through the end of May until he has to return to Canada for the beginning of the rodeo circuit. He loves to teach guests how to rope so don’t be afraid to ask him.

The Cats – Ozzie and Morris…

Monday, January 21st, 2008

Ozzie and Morris are growing up quick and have tripled in size since we brought them home a few months ago. They remain very friendly and love snuggling with guests in the Lodge and playing with the dogs tails and anything else that moves.

Dogs and Cats Getting Along Well

Monday, January 21st, 2008

While we are closed the dogs are sleeping in the Frontier Lodge so we don’t have to worry about 5 dogs around Sophie. Here is a cute little pic of “Ozzie” snuggling up with “Gus” on his pillow and another one of “Morris” going after his tail.

Mill Springs Had A Great Two Weeks at STGR

Sunday, January 20th, 2008

Stagecoach Trails Guest Ranch is very grateful and honored that The Mill Springs Academy returned the ranch for there 5th year in a row and not only came for 1 week but two full weeks! Wow! The week they are here is alway a welcome retreat from our normal routine at the ranch. They enjoyed many beautiful horseback rides, unforgettable karaoke nights, a overnight trip to the Painted Desert and Petrified Forest, a fun afternoon in Oatman, AZ, and a memorable trip to the Grand Canyon via the train from Williams, AZ. Jodi and I had Sophie right in the middle of their stay but luckily we planned ahead and my sister and brother-in-law, Vicki and Tony Just, filled in just fine. We also had a lot of help from Mary’s boyfriend, Scott, who was visiting. It was a great time and we can’t wait to hopefully see you all again next year. For more information on there school visit –

Sophie Comes Home To The Ranch…

Friday, January 11th, 2008

The three of us made it all home safely on Friday night. Sophie even slept the entire way home, including the dirt road which was a major concern – especially for her first time in the car seat. She did great, but turns out she saved the crying for bedtime instead! Here are a few more pics to enjoy and thank you all again for your continued concern, thoughts, and prayers. It must of worked as everything went very well and we are very blessed to have a healthy little girl to enjoy.

Tedd, Donald, and Donna Leave…

Friday, January 4th, 2008

We wanted to let everyone know that a Tedd and Donald and Donna all left the ranch around January 1st. Tedd had worked here for over a year and a half and we appreciate all the hard work he put in during that time. While Donald and Donna only worked here for about 6 months they also did a great job and will be missed around here. We wish them luck with there baby as well coming this Spring.

Craig is still working with us through this summer in which he will go back to his kids camp in Big Bear, CA for the summer and hopefully return in the fall.

Christmas Decorations Are All Gone…

Thursday, January 3rd, 2008

We had a long day but we got all the Christmas decorations down in the Frontier Lodge and Hualapai Dining Room. We tend to put up a lot of decorations so it is usually takes a couple of days. However, with the help of the Pano family visiting and all the other great guests we had everything done in one day! Thanks everyone for all your help!
