Carolyn Cartwright grew up around Fort Worth. She has lived her entire adult life right here, at the ranch. This is where she chose to raise her family. She has a brilliant way with livestock, of all kinds. That is evident to our guests, on their first visit. Farming and ranching has been her life and always will be. She feeds and cares for over 100 head of livestock everyday. Carolyn is up at sunrise 7 days a week and you will see her working around the ranch, long after dark. Most days you will find her riding colts in the round pen, driving young harness horses or mending fence in the pasture with her faithful Australian shepherds, at her side. Carolyn is the "life blood" of the ranch and she is proud to share it with you.
