Home on the ranch
It seems even the rich and famous long for the seclusion and tranquility of ranch life. As English actor, comedian and screenwriter Nick Frost says, “I would be happy living on a massive ranch in Montana and not seeing anyone except my friends and family.”
Actor Dennis Quaid admits, “I have a ranch in Montana, but it’s not a real working ranch. I’ve always liked the outdoors. I come from Texas. My grandfather was a farmer; that’s as close as I come.”
Designer Tom Ford adds, “I grew up in New Mexico, and the older I get, I have less need for contemporary culture and big cities and all the stuff we are bombarded with. I am happier at my ranch in the middle of nowhere watching a bug carry leaves across the grass, listening to silence, riding my horse, and being in open space.”
“I am just like my mother,” says pop star Kelly Clarkson. “She raised me to love and take care of animals, especially the ones that need it the most and so I started Eddie’s Rescue Ranch. We take in animals that need extra care and attention and the animals that get left behind. There is no greater feeling than hanging out with my dogs, or just walking around the land with our horses. My rescue ranch is where I feel the most at peace and where I’m reminded of the simple things in life and let the chaos of my crazy work life fade away.”
Actress Keri Russell predicts, “Maybe years from now I’ll be on a ranch in Colorado with 10 kids. The whole point of life is to experience a little bit of everything, and I think it’s better when there are a few surprises thrown in.”
Of course, you’ll want to keep surprises to a minimum when it comes to moving—whether to a secluded ranch or to a condo in the city. That’s why it’s best to seek the assistance of professionals such as Golan’s Moving Company which has affordably packed and safely moved thousands of satisfied customers for more than 20 years.
