This historical ranch has been well-managed and ambitiously and meticulously improved by its current owners. Consisting of approximately 5,151 deeded acres, and a 480 acre State of Wyoming lease, the property offers varied plains land terrain including treed creek bottoms, open rolling hills, irrigated hay meadows, numerous protective ravines and draws, many reliable reservoirs, incomparable water systems and impeccable homes and improvements. The varied rangeland provides excellent feed and cover for the livestock and hundreds of deer, antelope and upland game birds that populate the ranch. The Horn Creek Ranch has not been commercially hunted and has been a safe haven for the abundant population of big game. The ranch is being operated as a cattle, equestrian, and hay operation, with an average carrying capacity of 250 cow/calf pairs. Horn Creek offers great opportunity as it is exceedingly well watered with eleven reservoirs, three creeks running through the property, and a 5,780 foot deep Madison formation water well. The Madison well pumps 600 gpm at 120 psi and water surfaces at 120 degrees Fahrenheit. The well connects to eight miles of pipeline that feed all areas of the ranch improvements; seven of the reservoirs; a side roll irrigation line and a 5,000 gallon storage tank which is connected to seven stock tanks. The ranch currently has four homes; a Main House designed by Leslie Mohns Armstrong, a 4,000 sq ft modular ranch headquarters (impeccably remodeled), a custom built 2 bedroom, 1 ½ bath modular and another 3 bedroom, 2 bath modular. The Main House is a 5,463 sq. ft. custom home with attached 906 sq. ft. garage. The home was built in 2000 and features vaulted ceilings, custom wood crown molding, custom made wide plank wood flooring, chair rail, and columns in many rooms. This room also includes a screened porch that provides an outdoor dining and lounging area, a formal dining room, a master suite with his/hers walk in closets and large formal bath, large executive office featuring built-in book cases, a kitchen featuring Viking and Sub Zero appliances, granite countertops, and custom cabinetry, and 3 powder rooms in addition to the master bath. The Main House was cited so that the windows along the entire west side capture the views of a sweeping lawn and pond with a panoramic view of the Big Horn Mountains beyond. All of the homes have been immaculately maintained and are in excellent move-in condition. Horn Creek has been further improved with top of the line agriculture facilities that include working corrals, a 25’x60’ Morton cow barn, a 35’x50’ Morton horse barn that is attached to another 72’x105’ Morton building that can double as an indoor riding area or an equipment storage facility, and a 35’x90’ Morton shop with concrete floors and two sets of sliding doors.
The Horn Creek Ranch is a manageable family-sized turn-key ranch operation close to Buffalo but privately situated on the front range of the Bighorn Mountains. Beyond the suitable offerings for cattle and horses, the property has wetlands for waterfowl, reservoirs for fishing and ideal whitetail, mule deer and antelope hunting.
