The transformation of Lone Pecan Ranch is really quite something to witness as we prepare for this event every year. The ranch is much like a word in its name, “lone”, meaning it sits idle with not many guests during the year. And this year it meant replacing 40 year old plumbing, besides the usual mowing and tree limb management for the trailers coming in. But our riding buddies show up in the weeks beforehand to help out with the preparation. Always managing to find the time to ride! Finally, donated decorations go up, pumpkins and fall color gets placed in the courtyard, solar lights get entwined around trees and the ranch is ready to receive its guests. The final look at the weather seemed promising and it’s a go!
