Old MacDonald had a ranch, e-i-e-i-o. And on that ranch he had a farm…and so the story goes. MacDonald’s Ranch
, in addition to pony rides, trail rides, train rides and gold panning, has a farm – with goats and chickens and miniature horses and donkeys – only they call it a petting zoo here in Scottsdale. This Sonoran desert ranch, just north of Phoenix, is a great place for kids and cowboys to gather round and swap stories.
I was recently in Scottsdale, Arizona, which happens to be the west’s most Western town, and I thought to myself, why not experience the Sonoran desert from the back of a horse?
