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 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 21 saddle mules, including 18-hand Belgian draft mule, Roll, along with retired broodstock, and the minis, including 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 handicapped 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!

This was our June Day Trip for 56 people in our group. When we arrived at the location, we were greeted by very professional ladies, showing us where to park our charter bus and assuring us that they were anticipating our arrival. The host of our tour was Meredith Hodges, world-recognized authority on training donkeys and mules to championship status.... More

I hardly know where to begin. It was the most fascinating, educational, and informative experience that went far beyond our expectations! We spent 4 hours with Meredith, her staff and of course her 'longears'. Beyond belief how her philosophy, and love regarding the care, treatment and training of these wonderful animals has made champions of them. After meeting Meredith's longears,... More

This is a very worthwhile tour to learn about mules and the origins of the ranch. Beautiful grounds and well cared for animals by "mule whisperer", Meredith Hodges. Watch the listing of trips in the Fort Collins Recreator for the tour through the Senior Center. A van takes you directly to the ranch after which we stopped at Biaggi's in... More

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.

The Lucky Three is a unique 127 acre ranch that specializes in training and rescuing mules and donkeys. There are approximately 35 animals on the ranch now, including mules, donkeys and burros. The tour includes a video, a lecture and a... More
