Kate manages the Zapata Lodge & Ranch and oversees Ranchlands marketing.

This week we had a new member of the crew join us, 14 year old Jaden from Alamosa came to Zapata on a work experience day. Whilst the bitter wind blew and snow fell from the overcast sky Jaden jumped right in and helped sort over 50 pairs from the Pivot to the Blanca pasture. Jaden ran the gate, ensuring only the pairs passed through and making sure none turned back. Later tht day he helped J.R trim and clear tree branches from around the lodge before meeting Gordon the baby bison and his relatives in larger herd on the Medano. Jaden left for the day with an invite to return anytime, a fun member of the crew and a hard worker.
