A newly constructed barn covering over 4,800 square feet (and incorporates the barndominium mentioned above), sits near the headquarters and is 60’x60′ under roof and over slab plus an overhang lean-to for implement parking that is an additional 20’x60′ in size. This barn is beautiful and built the right way! Big roll-up doors and also a nice ranch office with a full bathroom and shower located inside.
The implement barn is next to the main barn and is 50 feet wide by 60 feet long, has lights and electricity and a new roof and sides. A nice addition to the Boots Ranch
***At the headquarters are we find the 2 barns and barndominium, 1 excellent water well, and 2 very nice sets of cattle working pens. The newest set is completely galvanized in construction. All pastures on the ranch feed into this area for ease in handling livestock.
Recently all of the exterior and interior fences were replaced and new galvanized fencing installed! This is as good as it gets and should last many decades for the new owners. These new galvanized fences are not only functional but easy on the eyes as well.
The Boots Ranch has an abundance of surface and subsurface watering capabilities. The big irrigation well near the main home is high in volume and quality. There is a large lake at the main house that is loaded with bass and catfish and is supplemented by the large irrigation water well in dry times. There are 2 other big new stock tanks located throughout the ranch and can be supplemented with piped water. The water from the wells is high quality and good drinking water! There is also a wet weather creek bisecting the property on the north end. Several big new Manna water troughs are situated throughout the ranch and provide plentiful water to all pastures. An additional new water well was drilled recently near the headquarters and provides good drinking water to that area.
Bird hunting around the lake and stock tanks for doves here can be extraordinary and similar to hunting in the Rio Grande Valley! A well renowned quail guide has brought a few clients to the ranch over the years to hunt that prime quail grounds and has had much success. A perfect mixture of grasses, light to moderate brush cover, water, results in the excellent quail habitat her.
Deer, turkey and hogs are plentiful and from time to time, a large buck is seen. There are a few food plots on the ranch with automatic corn feeders and hunting blinds. A 19 point buck was found dead on the ranch just 2 years ago!
