Picturesque hay meadows and horse pastures beckon you as the gateway to the Marabou homesteads. Over 200 acres of both irrigated hay meadows and dry land hay fields are being farmed and harvested for feeding the ranch’s horses, with the surplus sold to local ranchers. Residents can take part in the cutting and the baling of hay, if they choose.

The ranch continues its active cattle operation, with its growing herd of Angus. Residents with an adventurous spirit have the opportunity to assist in the care of the animals. The ranch manager, Chad Bedell, is committed to sharing his love of horses, cattle, and ranching lore with Marabou residents.

The stars looked alive that night at Marabou, like they were only 50 feet above us, as if you could touch them. We started seeing shooting stars, one right after the other. My 15-year-old daughter grabbed my hand and said, ‘Dad, I love you.’ I felt as if I gave her the gift of the stars that night. It’s a moment that will be ours forever.”
