Pebbles is the mother of our George, born
7/11/10 and Bambi, born 3/27/11. Bambi lives here at Big Wheel Ranch with us and Gerorge was sold during the summer of 2011.
We will miss Pebbles' sweet personality and I already miss seeing her relaxing on top of her condo. She was well loved here
at Big Wheel Ranch.

Mindy Sue was our beautiful Irish Setter, we will love and miss her always.
Mindy Sue loved to go to horse shows with me when she was a puppy. She went to puppy kindergarten and was always so well behaved.
We would "camp out" at the Horse Shows and sleep in the tack room of the horse trailer. She was a wonderful companion to us and the
rest of her critter friends.

Thomas was our neutered male mynx cat. he was a big boy, weighing in at nearly
20 pounds. At 12 years old Thomas was our Head Ranch Cat... he loved hunting and just laying around the ranch. He was
such a character, we loved him very much and will certainly miss him on the farm. Sadly, Thomas had to be put to sleep after
being poisoned by anti-freeze. (please note: if you have outdoor cats, make sure that you don't have any of this laying around...
we didn't at our house, and we will never know where he got into it for sure... )
We lost our beautiful doeling Kacey today (8/21//13) . What a sad, hard day. She is the first
kid we have lost at Big Wheel Ranch. We believe she died due to complications from getting disbudded this week, the stress from
the procedure combined with the extreme temperatures (nearly 100 degree heat index) were just too much for her. We didn't have
her long, but we loved her and will miss seeing her run & play here at the ranch. We know she loved her sister and her mother
but we take comfort in knowing she is with our Lord in heaven.
Born March 9th, 2012 , passed away on August 19, 2014.
Sadly we had to put Mona Lisa to sleep this week on
the advice of an emergency veterinarian. She had injured herself by getting her leg caught between the barn wall and the tin
screwed to the outside. Poor Mona had been trying to free her leg and was in a horrible state when we found her. The vet
was not able to repair the damage done and suggested we put our sweet girl to sleep. I can not even begin to explain our deep
sadness over losing our beautfiul doe. Mona Lisa was a wonderful doe. She never fought with the other does and she was
a great mother to her twin boys this year. We loved her so much and she was such a joy to have on our farm. We will miss
Born March 25, 2010, passed away on November 14, 2014 due to a sudden illness. Big Jake was a joy to have on our
farm, he had such a wonderful unique character and personality. He was always the first buck to greet me at the gate.
Big Jake sired many beautiful kids here at Big Wheel Ranch. He was deeply loved and will be dearly missed by all.
Born on April 1, 2011, our beloved Patsy was put down today, January 3rd, 2015 after suffering from a long illness that
we tried so very hard to battle. Patsy was called to Heaven today. Thank You Patsy for my precious Dottie & our wonderful
Cowboy that you gave to us last April. You will be missed and loved forever as you are always in our hearts.
