Lucky Three Ranch is a working ranch and not open to the public except for scheduled tours. Tours are available Monday through Friday by appointment only, and all tours begin at 10:00 AM. The tour season runs from January through October. Our tours are perfect for seniors, children, and anyone with an interest in animals. If you are an equestrian—we have even more for you! Come meet the saddle mules, including 18-hand Belgian draft mule, Roll, along with the newest additions, miniature donkeys Spuds & Augie. Experience the beautiful life-size bronze sculptures of the Loveland Longears Sculpture Park that commemorate many of the record breaking feats of the Lucky Three champions. For the kids, visit Jasper’s Bunkhouse and see the diorama of Jasper’s Happy Valley Ranch! The ranch is handicap-accessible and we provide tour carts for our guests who have mobility issues or who might not otherwise be able to make the trek around the property.

The team at Lucky Three shared their fabulous sculptures and awesome mules with a group of members from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Larimer County. We even got to meet Jasper. They really made our visit a very positive experience!

I just wanted to clarify that the Lucky Three Ranch is in Loveland, not Ft. Collins. It is rather difficult to find so consult the website or check out Google or Bing maps for assistance.
