Summer Time Fun and Work

Joe Cool

Oh, the lazy days of summer are just not to be had when one’s livelihood is ranching. Summer days at the Grieb Ranch are FULL and busy.

Ag Adventure Camp

The summer started with Grieb Ranch people, horses and other animals serving at two delightful weeks of Ag Adventure Camp. 50 girls the first week and over 30 boys the second week had a great time exploring God’s creation through agriculture. The “cowgirls” and “cowboys” rode every day and four of the five horses were Grieb ranch horses. Mr. T, Bob, Joe and High Five were all enjoyed by the campers who learned how to get on, send the horses forward, turn, how to get off and a few enjoyed a little trotting. Smiles broadened the kid’s faces every day. For more pictures check out the Apela Foundation Facebook page.

Ranch Activities

Back at the ranch life continues with the gathering and weaning of calves to help reduce the need for so much water in the drought.
