The 103+/- acre Seidel Bar None Ranch is located 3 ½ miles south of the town of Thermopolis, on state Highway 20, near the mouth of the famous Wind River Canyon. The Bar None has been a very successful and nationally recognized Morgan horse operation, standing some of the country’s top foundation stallions and raising the industry’s top foals. The ranch consists 57+/- acres of ground currently under irrigation raising high quality grass as well as alfalfa hay.
There are an additional 38 adjudicated acres. Cross Fenced into multiple paddocks and pastures, the current irrigation system allows for additional acres to be added. Irrigation water for these fields comes from a 50 HP Baldor pump on the Bighorn river that has underground 12 inch buried pipe to each field. Flood irrigation gated pipe is part of the assets of the ranch. Currently it is being assessed for a pivot sprinkler system. Access to the Ranch is highway approach through a gravel driveway spanned by the Bar None archway.

Comments: The red Chugwater Formation cliffs as you break out of the spectacular Wind River Canyon is the site of Bar None’s unique location. It is one of the most sought after areas of the Big Horn Basin. The Bighorn River where the farm sources it’s irrigation water has become one of the most popular fishing destinations in the west. Thermopolis has the Hot Springs State Park which is the most popular state park in Wyoming. Close proximity to Yellowstone and the encircling Absaroka and Big Horn mountains make this small community a newly discovered area of interest for those seeking to escape the large population centers. These amenities are an added bonus to a ranch with all the components in place for your western vision.
