This is just one of the many lovely old buildings in the several ranch yards we visited when at Quilchena Ranch last spring. There were shops and smithy’s and barns, all so well laid out and beautifully built. These were needed to keep the ranch operational, back in the days when they had to rely on themselves to keep things fixed, shod and running. Many ranches then even had a schoolhouse.
They still have all the equipment but the fixing etc is done in town and the buildings …except for the barns which are still well used, wear a mantle of that fabulous nostalgia that hooks me every time.
