Yesterday, Mr. W and I took an “us” day. We spent the morning at Warm Springs Ranch near Boonville, Missouri. We then did some antiquing, followed by shopping and a late lunch at Cracker Barrel. I have been yearning to visit Warm Springs since 2008 (the year the Ranch moved just a little over an hour away from us). I was not disappointed, and cannot wait to return!
I will share our tour with mostly photos and very little “talk!” Pic heavy I know.. but, well, I am making up for lost time.. haha!
The tour began with a short video that was just a glorious celebration of the Clydesdales, and included in the mix was a snippet of my favorite Budweiser commercial.. which brought tears to my eyes. I am such a sucker for the Clydesdales, and when they throw in my favorite little equine.. well… it’s a winning combination for me.
Let the tour begin…
Such a beautiful ranch!
Bonus birdwatching while waiting for tour to begin: Great Blue Heron

Baby born on Cinco de Mayo.. 1 of 3 very new foals we had the honor to meet.
Needless to say, I would highly recommend visiting Warm Springs Ranch. You have to make your reservations quite a while in advance, but once you are there I guarantee you won’t regret it! Take this link to see if any tickets are available this season.
Hope all is well where you are!
