The SpaceWe are located along the San Francisco River, in Pleasanton, NM. The home was formerly a gallery, and Jude's clay art as well as work by other local artists is displayed throughout. Simple, 2-bedroom house has a kitchen and a private bath with shower. Great birding opportunities from your porch. Large organic garden with fresh produce in season, and lots of butterflies. Cool mornings and warm afternoons most of the year. You can meet our Colonial Spanish Barb horses. They are desert hardy and good on rocky ground, and stand just 13-3 hands. Ours belong to the Wilbur Cruce strain.
Guest AccessJude works in her clay studio, and has indoor and outdoor kilns. Frequent evening raku firings are fun to watch. Interaction with GuestsWe offer information on local highlights, as well as bird, animal, and plant life. Star charts are provided. There are occasional bonfires in the evening by the picnic table.
