Meet the Horses – Pistol Pete

Posted by bishopslodgemgr in On the Trail, Our Horses

Howdy! My name is Pistol Pete, but you can call me Pistol if you’d like. I’m a 16 year old Draft-Pony Cross Gelding. I’m a sorrel horse with a flaxen mane and tail, just like my friend, Buster. I have big feet, though I’m short and stocky. Every once in a while, I get hungry on the trail and take a breather to grab a bite to eat. While I prefer carrots and apples, I’ll eat pretty much anything I can get my hooves on. If you’re an intermediate rider who has the strength to pull up my big (and beautiful) head, I may be the horse for you!

Fun fact: Pistol Pete’s best friend is Buster.

Houston, we Heard You. Astronaut Donald Pettit Attends HPLA Conference at Bishop’s Lodge – from Space!

Posted by bishopslodgemgr in Happenings

This week, General Dynamics is hosting their  2012 High Powered Laser Ablation (HPLA) conference at Bishop’s Lodge.  During the keynote address, they had a very special attendee, Astronaut Donald Pettit, who called in from the International Space Station.

Donald has been space since December of 2011. His mission was recently extended from May to July. When he’s not working, he’s playing the real life version of Angry Birds Space.

First Churrasco Night of the Year is a Great Success, Raising $460 for Kitchen Angels!

Posted by bishopslodgemgr in Happenings

During the spring and summer seasons, we host Churasco nights every Thursday. Las Fuentes is transformed into a Churrascaria, a Brazilian bistro serving prime, grilled meats, exotic varieties of seafood, ethnic side dishes and an extensive salad bar.

To kick-off our first Churrasco night of the season, we hosted Angels Night Out to support Kitchen Angels, a local organization dedicated to providing meals to homebound individuals living with challenging conditions. Thanks to our Churrasco patrons, in just one night, we raised $460 for the organization!

Happy Birthday, New Mexico!

Posted by bishopslodgemgr in Santa Fe

Did you know that Bishop’s Lodge is older than New Mexico’s statehood? Bishop Lamy’s private retreat – where Bishop’s Lodge stands today – was established in 1853. On January 6, 1912, President William Howard Taft signed New Mexico’s statehood bill, making New Mexico the 47th state in the Union.

Bishop’s Lodge Elects “Sheriff of the Day”

Posted by bishopslodgemgr in Buckaroos

Though we have security on property, sometimes we need a little extra support. This is why we’ve decided to begin electing “Sheriffs of the Day.” These young sheriffs-in-training will be given their own badge, certificate and will take an oath to take care of our animals and uphold rules. This week’s Sheriff of the Day, Connor, did a fantastic job of keeping Bishop’s Lodge safe!
