Around 50% of the property is timbered with intermixed shrub, brush, and mountain pasture. The timber is predominantly beautiful healthy Aspen. The current owners have proactively managed both the soil composition and various vegetative species on the property for optimal production and long-term health. The portions of the property with more dense cover provide great seclusion and habitat for both horses and wildlife. The north side of the forested area has been seeded in Timothy and Mammoth Red Clover. Currently, this area is often utilized by elk and mule deer for calving. The mixture of vegetation not only provides great cover and habitat but also an incredible blend of colors come to Fall. The remaining 50% of the property is more level to slightly sloping mountain pasture and fenced dry-lot paddocks allowing for plenty of usable land for horses.
The ranch is perimeter fenced and cross-fenced with treated tenon joint wood fencing. A graveled parking area and some steel pipe fencing surround the pasture shelter in the far southwest portion of the property. There are four 12’ x 36’ pasture shelters with Nelson Waterers to each pasture. Some areas are double fenced making this an ideal setup for a breeding program or to board outside horses. Current ownership has boarded numerous outside horses in years past and this is a very financially feasible option for Silverado Ranch. In addition to riding in the round-pen or in the pastures, there are numerous trails in the surrounding area to ride and keep horses exercised. Trail riding from the front gate along Silverado Road presents some amazing views. For the animal lovers, there are also fenced areas for dogs, goats, and chickens if so desired.
