Honest to Pete! (Who is Pete anyway?) This rainbow trout was caught in Mother Lake and measured 32 inches, folks!  Mike Kruise, co-owner of The Laughing Grizzly Fly Shop out of Longmont, was quite excited to report, and I quote, “This monster is the biggest rainbow I’ve caught ANYWHERE, EVER!” But then wryly commented that it sure sets his bar high for fly fishing the rest of the season!

He caught this on a small crawdad-orange colored squirrel leech!  (See below for more hot flies.)  Thanks for the photo, Mike, or some readers may not have believed you!

Tee Cross Baron

March Horse of the Month — Tee Cross

Foaled in 2004, “Tee Cross” is a nice big stout bay gelding.

For such a big guy, he has the sweetest little pony face that you could just hug and kiss him all day long. I’m not sure he would like that so I wouldn’t recommend trying. He thinks he’s a big tough cow horse.

Tee Cross is proving to be a wonderful trail horse, very solid and sure footed. He really likes to go on the cattle drives the best, and is bred to be a great cow horse. His mother is “Tivios Cross Bar” aka. “Cassie” or “Mama Cass” as I call her. She has been one of our best guest horses since her retirement from being a broodmare.

Tee Cross’ sire is “Gold Dust Trail” a palomino stallion whose bloodlines go back to one of Sylvan Dale’s foundation sires, “Baronet Bar.” Tee Cross has a full brother, a palomino named “Sparkie Bar Rancher” and a full sister, a bay named “Sugar Tee Trail.”
