“Life’s never so clear as when seen from the back of a horse”
Spurs and Spuds is a growing collection of stories and photographs, creative works and reflections that chronicle life on Big Bar Ranch. Here, we share our love of horse culture, hobby farming, the awe-inspiring wildness of the Southern Cariboo of British Columbia, and our passion for the preservation of a gentler way of life and an era long since passed. The Ranch is in constant flux and growth. Each day we come up with inspired projects and new discoveries. One day, we are breaking a new trail, the next, we’re introducing a rescued yearling to the heard, inventing ‘the best!’ pie recipe, hosting a farm work for stay, planting an herb garden or climbing a nearby mountain range. By sharing our stories we strive to build community amongst like-minded individuals with a passion for the western frontier and the sense of freedom, simplicity and adventure it represents.
