"Thanks so much for such a great time!"
Donal and Ruth from Ireland
"Lonestar became a cow horse."
"(Almost) better than sex!"
"This week let our cowboy dreams come true!"
"More is not possible ... even better than last year!"
"Branding with the neighbors, moving cows ... the wide open space
and the cowboy lifestyle ... we had an amazing time again."
"I will be back."
"New Haven is not a wellness farm ... I feel every muscle in my
body ... never thought I had so many ... brandings, wrestling calves,
moving horses, cattle drive in South Dakota, dancing in Deadwood, rodeo
in Hulett ... so much fun!"

"Sky above, mud below ... we will keep you in our hearts!"
"Unbelievable, unforgettable, uncomparable, undescribable,
"We will miss you."
"Thanks to Ginger ... I love that horse!"
"We were here last year and we will come back next year ... 12
long months without Tucker."
"Incredible adventures: roping, chasing cattle, fencing, riding
the ATV ... see you soon!"
"Three days are too short."
"Thanks to Nick and the donkey for the roping lessons, thanks to
Doerte for the hoof care instruction, thanks to Anthony for the obstacle

Andy for the great food, thanks to the horses ... but no thanks to the
cows ... they were too stubborn."
"For now I am taking home the dirty pants, smelly shirts, bruises
and loads of memories!"
"The time I spent here was very important to me."
"Sweat, dust, hail, heat, a wonderful landscape and last but not
least your great hospitality made this vacation a very special one."
" ..." (This entry was in German and is untranslatable ... but I
think they left with a smile on their faces.)
"Hope we see you again next year."
"Real cowboys at work ... with guns."
"Thanks to the hot tub ... we won't forget this vacation!"
"Now we can rope and shoot as well."
"Had a nice time again seeing you and the rest of the 'extended'
"Thanks for Nick and Doerte for sharing this with us. We will come
"I came as a novice ... and I am leaving confident and more
relaxed than I have been in a long time ... thanks to experiencing
another world and way of life. I already miss you terribly ..."
"Time went by too fast."
"I have never ridden as much in my life as in the week at your
"I will come back."
"Thanks for the beautiful weather in October, for finding cattle,
losing cattle, finding it again ... and for making me buy chinks!"
