And… We’re Off!

Helping People with Disabilities.

you’re invited to celebrate a winning tradition at our 2011 sire charity gala Won’t you join us at our Boots & Bonnets Gala to raise funds for SIRE, Houston’s Therapeutic Equestrian Centers? SIRE is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization founded to provide those with disabilities young and old - an opportunity to improve their physical and mental strength through the joy of horseback riding. No other form of exercise reproduces the three-dimensional movement patterns (forward/back, side to side) through the human pelvis that riding a horse accomplishes. Physically, riding a horse is the most unique form of therapeutic intervention available to people with disabilities. Mentally and emotionally, riding a horse is as powerful an activity as it is for the body – sometimes even more so! We cannot lose our momentum! Your participation will help us to keep clients like Gabby (pictured below) in the saddle. To purchase tickets, please call 281-356-7588. Or, for more information, please visit www.sire-htec.org.

$ 2011 sire boots & bonnets charity gala Saturday, May 7th at Sam Houston Race Park 4:30 to 6:00 pm Kentucky Derby Happy Hour (Live Racing and Simulcast of the Kentucky Derby) 6:00 pm Dinner and Dancing • Live and Silent Auction • Live Music by Password

Possibly one of the best mule deer and elk ranches in New Mexico, El Vado Ranch serves as a wintering location for large herds of game. The 2006 season produced a buck scoring 211 B&C, and multiple trophy deer still roam the ranch. Several miles of the Rio Chama Wildlife Management Area border the ranch and provide a refuge for trophy game. Within a mile of the ranch, you will find blue ribbon trout fishing in the Chama River and El Vado Lake. Very scenic and averaging around 6,000 feet in elevation, the ranch has several springs that could be developed to feed lakes on the ranch, 15 ponds, an artesian well and three other new water wells drilled in 2007. Ground water is readily available throughout the ranch at an average depth of 300 feet. The property has paved road access and great development potential. 2,000 to 8,000 acres can be purchased; the owner will divide one time. Set in northern New Mexico at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, El Vado is 20 miles southwest of Chama and is accessed paved County Road 112. For the past 10 years, the ranch has been heavily

Feature Ranch

A Legend: The Devils River There still remain vast tracts where the spirit of the Texas frontier remains unbroken. Where gin-clear waters meander through sun-parched canyons. This is Nature’s private crossroads. From the air, the sight is unmistakable: A spring-fed ribbon in an undeveloped corner of Texas, the Devils River is the zero-benchmark for water quality in our state and one of the few wild rivers remaining in the Southwest. It remains as pure as yesteryear and awaits your discovery. A forest thrives along the riverbanks here on the western perimeter of the Hill Country, while desert plants and flowers assert themselves at this far-eastern reach of the Chihuahuan Desert. Representative plants and animals from the South Texas Brush Country additionally call this wild place home. Broad shouldered and rugged. Rich in character. The Devils River is a legendary oasis that speaks to all who treasure the great outdoors.

Paradise Found The ranch boasts 88,000-plus acres, rolled up from multiple individual parcels, each with a unique landscape and history. Teeming with wildlife, they comprise a sportsman’s paradise with both sides of one of Texas’ premiere fisheries in addition to whitetail deer, javelina, wild cats, turkey and quail. The spring-fed waters on the ranch nourish biological diversity. The 6-plus miles of pristine riverfront are home to rare and unique species. Over 350 bird types populate the ranch, some finding survival difficult elsewhere. Fern cave, the largest in the state by volume, provides maternity shelter to over 10,000,000 Mexican free-tailed bats; their dramatic, hour-long emergence on Summer evenings is a natural wonder to behold. Wide open yet secluded, this assemblage of land offers an unprocessed expanse of an older Texas, still much as it was when the railroad first went through, pristine and undeveloped. Of course, there are numerous homesites that would be ideal for modern construction, but the greatest satisfaction will be found on the land and waters of this unspoiled place.

The Last Frontier

Land of this stature is a rare find. Back in the day, neighboring ravines were nicknamed Dead Man’s Gulch and Crazy Canyon for good reason. Not far away, Judge Roy Bean dealt his wry brand of justice at the end of a six-shooter. Colorful, yes. But that was a single chapter in the land’s relatively recent past. The ranch’s roots go far deeper. Fern Cave was a Union bastion behind enemy lines at a time of secession and war between states. Fort Hudson, an outpost on the San Antonio to El Paso mail route, was situated on the ranch and the ruins of its pre-Civil War stockade are a haunting reminder of a time of war between cultures. Indeed, several recorded skirmishes occurred at “Camp Hudson” when raids throughout the area were commonplace. Over ten thousand years ago, before recorded history, people were drawn to the rock shelters and countless grottoes among the ranch’s canyons. They found a bountiful hunting ground and pure spring waters. And because only a few have had the enviable privilege to know and explore this area, to step foot here is to step back in time and encounter a history not widely known.

S

ituated at Highway 55’s “19-Mile Crossing” of the Nueces River about halfway between Uvalde and Camp Wood, Long Hollow Ranch offers approximately 8,400 acres to the

informed sporting family equipped to recognize quality and value in today’s changing marketplace. Long Hollow and several of its contiguous neighbors are subject to water-quality conservation easements designed to ensure future permeability of the Edwards Aquifer Recharge Zone. By limiting (not eliminating) subdivision and development, these protections preserve far more than water quality. How secure is the viewshed at your existing ranch? How would it affect your enjoyment if the equally-large property you’re considering elsewhere becomes surrounded by 300-acre, then 150-acre ranchettes? If you plan to leave land to future generations, what safeguards the outdoors experience you enjoy today? Can it last? Long Hollow is an active cattle ranch and the conservation easements in place throughout the area enhance rather than limit sporting opportunities. Oil and gas extraction are expressly allowed, and all minerals will convey at time of sale. It’s simple: If you’re not a developer, conservation land provides substantially more acreage for a given budget, or requires less investment to reach a target size. Long Hollow Ranch is beautiful country with significant appreciative potential at a very compelling price. Fortunately for those that do, few people understand the emerging trends by which investment-grade rural property is selected and held. If you are capable of owning an asset of this caliber and you comprehend value, Long Hollow Ranch should be on your short list to consider. Limited subdivision is possible. Nothing similar is available for the price: offers between $800 and $1,200 per acre (depending on configuration) will be considered. v
