I am proud to announce the new website for the Outten Ridin' Ranch!
This website was created from a blank slate using Bootstrap 4. Bootstrap is a powerful web design tool that allows a completely customized design with responsive features that enable the best possible user experience, no matter what device the website is viewed on.
The Outten Ridin' Ranch is a south Anchorage, small scale horse boarding and stable facility located right in the heart of the city's horse country. The ranch is currently operating on a limited capacity while awaiting the completion of additional upgrades. They hope to be in full operation by the summer of 2018.
The website is 99% complete with the only remaining feature to be added being an online boarding application process. A custom made logo was also designed for the ranch that was inspired by a huge sign gift given to the owner. (Owner pictured on left, BF pictured on right)
Take a look around at the new website and enjoy!
I am a website designer with calloused hands.
Two summers ago, we moved onto two acres of property, much of it being grass. Push mowers did not seem adequate for our mowing needs so my wife and I began thinking of alternatives. Believing ourselves crafty and smart, we opted for the next best thing - an herbivore. We went with a goat and felt so confident the goat we purchased was going to be a part of our grass solution, we named the goat “John Deere.”
Two things quickly became evident with this move.
Goats never bring their own tools to a project.
Considering they do not have opposable thumbs to carry a tool box with, this makes sense.
This limitation in no way inhibits their willingness to get into your tool box and begin to pull them out. Box wrenches, screw drivers, the teflon tape, vice grips, no matter. They will rummage through all of them until they have found one to their liking. It does not even matter if they have selected the right tool for the project. At least not to the goats.
No matter who you are. No matter what walk of life you are coming from or going on. No matter what particular philosophy you hold to, there are certain truths that apply to all of us. I will boldly say that universal truths can also be understood as absolute truths.
Now I know the moment most read my declarative statement, individualized personal truth meters are likely to start pinging. The reason why is because societal thinking has significantly changed over the last few generations. But you can relax and read on. This is not a morality blog (though I do have strong moral opinions). Nor is it a stand on any one particular philosophical belief system (I do have my favorites). The kind of universal truths I am talking about are laws that are stitched into the fabric of the universe. These are truths that most people accept and rely on to explain the stuff of life with (with some variance).
"I just spent 20 minutes chasing goats. None of them would listen. I picked up John Deere thinking the rest will follow him. Well he kicked me and gnashed his teeth and tried to bite me. And I was right the rest did follow him, in his naughty ways. 😡
First of all, John Deere weighs a freaking heck ton. That goat is REAL fat. Like FAT. By some miracle I got him into the barn and went for Gus because you know, he's the nice one.
