If you have visited us here at the Reach Out Ranch, you have undoubtedly had the pleasure of meeting the smallest and yet most notable member of our family, Joseph. Each day we nurture his sixth sense and encourage his natural abilities to talk to all creatures great and small. I hope this newsletter gives you some ideas on how you can do the same for your little one.
Precocious, gregarious, and a teacher at heart, like many kids of his generation, Joseph has a light in his eyes, a song in his step, and an infectious smile that extends far beyond the edges of his body.
Joseph is not just a free spirit, he is very well-educated in many topics. From dinosaurs to bugs and other species of animals, he has an insatiably inquisitive mind. And, like any respectable wizard, he is well versed in the ways of Hogwarts and muggles.
Always creative, “Jojo” can make an adventure out of anything. Whether he is a wizard, a superhero, or Coyote Joseph (the character he plays while emulating his favorite YouTube wildlife expert, Coyote Peterson) he explores the bounds of the ranch and his imagination.
Nature is his classroom and the animals his teachers. The outdoors provides him with life-altering experiences and imagination is the key to expanding the mind and making the impossible possible.
He loves making videos and has begun creating educational videos of his own to document his exploration and adventures. It’s our hope these short videos engage your children, create a platform for you to return to nature with them and learn to listen to the animals.
So we dedicate this chilly December Newsletter to our beloved Joseph and all children, may the Holiday season remain magical for you for many, many, MANY years to come.
Watch Below: A Day in the Life of a Ranch Kid, Episode 1.
As the son of a horse whisperer and entrepreneur, his life is exposed to extraordinary situations, circumstances, and adventures. He is connected to the land, the animals and nature. Ranch life becomes a way of being and he embraces experiential learning. It goes beyond the “norm” to encompass all 6 senses, enhancing connection, communication, and collaboration with all life.
Watch Below, Video #2 in Joseph’s series:
A day in the life of a ranch kid; reins to a richer life.
He connects organically with the animals. Naturally, he communicates without ego. He awakens love within others. He speaks their language; both verbal and silently. He shares his words of wisdom with his Spanish Mustang, Excalibur, for other children to experience a true connection with their horse partners.

A Day in the Life of a Ranch Kid
When you are raised where all the animals are part of the family, you know no different. They teach him about their lifestyles, culture, language, and above all, about himself. He learns trust, respect, boundaries, compassion, leadership, communication, balance, discipline, body language, expressions, care and unconditional love ~ for himself and all those around him.
