Wildwood Glen Ranch
Over One-Hundred Years of History
This rural country property is rich with history and beaming with potential! Situated on nearly 12 acres in Alpine's scenic hills, this picturesque and private retreat was waiting to be discovered. A gently meandering driveway invites you to come and explore all that this place has to offer, which includes two homes, a detached garage, a hay barn, a large aviary, lush pasture, orchard, and so much more! Three seasonal creeks and a seasonal pond - soon to be year-round with a little help – all converge into the SweetwaterRiver tributary, providing natural beauty and tranquility throughout the property. Once home to a popular mountain resort, the ranch still boasts many features and footprints of a treasured past.
Around The Ranch
Big & Small
This little guy stops by several times daily to peck around windows as he attempts to plant acorns. Feel sorry for the little thing if he thinks this is a winter food supply.
For a minute we didn't connect. Since then this dog has joined the family and is my personal shadow.
Willie & Nelson
These guys needed a home and we had an empty goat pen. That is really the entire story. Never dreamed of having goats, really never wanted goats, but here they are.
A long but meaningful story accompanies this rooster. It is all about a little girls and her PaPa who passed almost a year ago. Add her prayer for a chicken and her faith that her Papa is in Heaven and listening. Suddenly, seriously, suddenly a lost roster found his way to Wildwood Glen
Mushu is a big cat we adopted through Friend of Cats - a great organization. We selected Mushu during a visit - more accurately, he selected us.
Meet The Girls
Elsewhere on the site we introduced to Willie and Nelson. Unfortunately, we lost Willie just before the holidays and Nelson was a herd of one - not good for a goat. Happily we found Rosa Bell and Moonshine - two female Nubian Dwarfs to keep him company.
Heckle & Jeckle
There are two crows - or ravens - that call the property home. Fearless and fast flying - they seem to prosper without causing too much trouble.
Red Tailed Hawk
This guy hangs down by the pasture and sometimes he can be seen high in flight as he hunts for rodents and other small prey. Awesome sight and awesome animal.
Lost & Found
This young lady roams the ranch freely these days after being found tiny, cold and wet by a granddaughter. She was immediately dubbed "Lucky" and on this day she showed up at my door.
I'm a Lucky Draw
Reno was another re-homing of an animal looking for a permanent place to live. He is a n APHA registers paint with a frisky, but gentle attitude. We are currently searching for a pasture mate to keep this gelding company - for now he hovers close to the goats.
