Michael managed Chico Basin Ranch for several years up until 2015.

It was pretty amazing to see this Mesquite Vine Grass up to the horses knees at this Chico Creek Crossing  near Headquarters.  The highly palatable and nutritious Mesquite Vine Grass was a rarity until a couple years ago, but has been making a tremendous comeback under improved grazing management.  This years Chico Creek Floods didn’t hurt anything either.  Vanessa’s horse “Cocaine” could not stand the temptation and managed to sneak a bite.
