The Ranch Lakewood, NM

Friday, October 21, 2011
The Escapees Ranch - Lakewood, NM 48 degrees’ and sunny to 84 degrees’ and sunny.

Round-up Fiesta starts today with coffee and donuts and bagels (not New York style). Then there were yard sales and at four this afternoon an expanded happy hour. We won a door prize.

The "Horse track"
Tonight there is Horse Races at seven. We arrange the floor with six lanes and twelve two-foot boxes. Two pair of dice are rolled together and each number is a "Horse" and can move one box per die. If two threes are rolled the three horse can move two boxes.

"Horses" are called to the post
Horses were picked last Wednesday at happy hour. For a winner the horse in the final box needs a double (two of the four die with their number other horses continue to move) to win.

Quarters are bet on the win only and part is raised for the Ranch and part is paid out.

Five post calls are made and the fifth post is one hundred percent (bet) is paid out.

"Horses" are moving down the track
Lots of wine  (loosen up the horses and the spectators pockets) with lots of fun.
