Where might you find out if someone has the best “Goat Side Manner?” At the KU Medical Center Pediatric Residency team building party, of course! We were so pleased to have this group of young docs join us for a fun day of ranch chores. Their duties that day were a little different from what they normally see in the hospital. After all, it’s not every day that you get to have a goat dressing competition!
Don’t worry animals lovers, the goats actually LOVE this activity. It’s gentle and they get super spoiled with lots of treats and special attention. This guy had the BEST “goat side manner.”
If treating kiddos doesn’t work out, he could always be a vet!
That wasn’t our only fun activity, though. The docs had a blast competing with a water balloon toss. Say what you want, playing with water balloons is fun no matter what age you are!
Horse collar relays were also on the rounds. We even played one of our crowd-favorites, a wild game of Walla Balla… Or as we like to call it, “I’m Sexy and I Know It.”
We’ll have to get a video up of this soon. You really need to see it in action. The goal is to get the ball that is dangling between their legs into the baskets strapped around their hips.
You get the picture. Of course, no ranch party is complete without some roller ropin’! Overall, it was such a fun time! Thanks again to the KU Medical Center Pediatric Residency for choosing Faulkner’s Ranch! Y’all were a blast!

On December 6th we welcomed back the Sprinkler Fitters Local #314 for their annual holiday party!
We had so much fun partying with them last year, so we were thrilled that they once again chose Faulkner’s Ranch to celebrate.
After spending just a little bit of time with them, it is clear that this group LOVES to get together. It’s no wonder since they go the extra mile to make their events special for their employees. One aspect of their event that made it extra special was that not only do they include current employees and their families, but they also included retirees from the union as well. How awesome is that?! That right there is TRUE employee appreciation!
It created a wonderful atmosphere!
|Fun for ALL ages!
After enjoying a traditional turkey lunch buffet (yum!),
the Sprinkler Fitters were visited by none other than Jolly Old St. Nick himself!
One of our favorite parts of holiday events is when Santa visits and guests get to take photos with him in our beautiful antique sleigh. The kiddos at this party were all decked out in adorable holiday finery, so were are sure that many of these photos ended up in family greeting cards or on the fireplace mantle. You gotta love when company parties create memories that will last a lifetime!
Of course, no visit to Faulkner’s is complete without seeing the stars of the Ranch – our animals! Even though it was a crisp day, our guests stayed warm and toasty in our heated petting farm barn. Our party animals sure loved the extra attention!
We are so glad that Sprinkler Fitters chose Faulkner’s Ranch once again as their party venue! It means so much to us when we become part of a tradition, especially when it is with a fantastic company and group of people!

Have a great day, y’all!

It is always such a huge compliment when a group chooses to return to Faulkner’s Ranch for their company picnic
. Especially in consecutive years! So, of course, we were thrilled when Multi Service Corporation
chose to once again celebrate their employees with us!
|A beautiful day for a picnic!
This group is such a blast to host! Not only are they just super fun people, but they always choose to add on the coolest extras to their parties.
One super special amenity that they added this year was the Kona Ice
Kona Ice is a great addition to a summer picnic because not only is it delicious, but it also helps your guests to beat the heat. You can choose from a variety of flavors. We like to mix them up – our favorite combo this year is strawberry banana.
|Every age loves Kona Ice!
This year they also had some fun with airbrush tattoos. Let us tell ya folks, kids, tweens, and teens think that these are the coolest things ever! It’s like face-painting with a bit of an edge.
Another fun addition to this year’s picnic was soaker hose limbo. The picture pretty much explains it all.
So much fun!
The kids (and let’s be honest, the adults too) also really enjoyed our pedal karts.
Did you know that you can even fish at the ranch? Guests are always excited to try their hand with our cane poles. They are nothin’ fancy, but they work! Especially at this picnic – the fish were biting! We do all catch and release so once these big guys are caught, they go back into the pond to keep on swimmin’.
If you weren’t fishing at this picnic then you may have been found playing volleyball. Our sand volleyball court is always sure to spark up some nice little competition.
This year, Multi Service also chose to bring back the casino tables that they had last year. These were a huge hit so their employees were really excited to see that they were available again.
Multi Service also had the most intense kickball tournament that we have ever seen.
Of course, they offered some awesome door prizes throughout the day, like this Smokey Joe Grill. Nothing puts the icing on a fun company picnic like going home with a prize!
Thanks again to Multi Service for coming back to Faulkner’s Ranch! We loved working with you to create a picnic that once again was fun for everyone!
