In the 1880s, El Paso County boasted the largest population of sheep in the state. 120,000 sheep produced about 560,000 pounds of fleece.
Join us at the Ranch to experience a slice of our Colorado heritage. Watch as the sheep are sheared with traditional and modern equipment and see a demonstration of expert sheepdog handling. There will also be carding, spinning, dyeing, and weaving demonstrations. Visit the general store to buy gifts made from our very own sheep!
