Welcome to Our Patch of Heaven!

Howdy friends! In honor of our 100th year in operation (it's incredible!), the Bar Lazy J is going high-tech! Now not to worry--there's still none of that allowed here while you're on vacation, but while you're away and anxious to keep up with what's going on (or you just need your "ranch fix"), come check in on our ranch blog where you'll find hoards of photos, we'll follow our staff and you'll hear all the latest happenings first! Of course reading about it isn't nearly as good as the real thing, so we hope to see you out on the trail real soon, but until then, check out what's happening and leave your comments--we love to see that our friends have stopped by! Happy trails everyone!

A Merry Christmas Indeed!


     Just a quick post to sneak a peek at our happiest of holidays! Many of our staff stuck around to work and play this winter, so everyone was invited to the Big House for dinner and festivities.


     And sooooome little girl may have bamboozled a couple of folks into letting her paint their nails “in the holiday spirit”. (We realized after, that NONE of us owned polish remover. Why would we…)


     Cheri and Jerry’s daughter, Leslie, flew in from the west coast to spend the week and gave the best rendition of The Night Before Christmas ever—a Helmicki Christmas Eve tradition! It was awesome that she was here and extremely special for Jerry and Cheri.


     Then Christmas morning, despite the holiday, there were horses to be fed and chores to be accomplished. But among the priority, there were important gifts for Santa’s helpers to deliver as well.


     (No trace left of the fodder for the petting farm animals—they gobbled it up quick. Mugsy is a true fan!)


Then it was out to the main herd to spread some Christmas cheer.




By one.


     We hope every one of you enjoyed your holidays no matter how you were celebrating. The spirit of the season is one of love and kindness and we are incredibly grateful for all of the friendships manifested through cards and loving thoughts sent our way. Thank you to each of you for being part of our huge ranch family—we think of you individually and cherish your memories almost as much as you do. We are already looking forward to an amazing 2015, but we’ll be doing a reflection back on 2014 here in the next couple of days. We send our appreciation and gratitude to all of you this season and hope you know what your continued love for Bar Lazy J means to us. It is never once taken for granted. Hugs from your ranch family and all your four-legged friends here in the valley! Merry Christmas and happy holidays to each of you from all of us!
