Steve Arnold and dog

Season 2, Episode 12 Out Now!

Pozo is set in a bowl shaped valley. In fact, the word Pozo translates to well or hole in Spanish. The town originated as a stop on the Butterfield Overland Main stagecoach. Pozo is currently home to a Fire station, the Pozo Saloon (a temporarily inactive Civil War Era Saloon)  and the Vintage Cowboy Winery. That’s it.

I met rancher Steve Arnold at the Vintage Cowboy Winery where he was surveying water damage to the floor of the tasting room from a recent storm. Most of the time when I visit ranches I am first greeted and inspected by ranch dogs. This case was no different except rather than being greeted by a border collie or Australian shepherd I met a pair of Boston terriers… Hudson and Budrow.
