The Many Hats of Wrangler Roger


Wrangler Roger is the face of Riverview Ranch. He handles the scheduling and coordination of horseback riding/petting zoo experiences and handles the day to day issues of the vacation rental business. Visitors and Guests will talk to Wrangler Roger most of the time. But he wears many hats.

Wrangler Roger used to be Fighter Pilot Roger, Airline Pilot Roger, Flight Instructor Roger, Charter Pilot Roger, Firefighter Roger, and REALTOR Roger.
He no longer wears those hats. Instead, he now wears the hats of Riverview Ranch and Resort:

Handyman Roger is out and about a lot. You will probably see him fixing a fence, repairing a hole in a wall, or fixing a plumbing leak. Wrangler Roger and Handyman Roger often grumble about each other. Wrangler Roger keeps breaking things; and Handyman Roger works right through feeding time, is always "too busy" to take on another new project, and he forgets to close gates.

Janitor Roger is a bit lazy, so Sabina has to do most of the cleaning up around the ranch. You may see him putzing around with a broom in his hand occassionally, or casually washing out a water bucket.

Campfire Roger likes to spend his time playing his guitar, singing, and telling stories around campfires. He never gets anything done, but he is a fun-loving fella who will play, sing, and tell stories for guests if he is asked.

Redneck Roger maintains, operates, and modifies all our equipment on the ranch. He gets strange pleasure out of digging in the dirt and tearing things up with his skid steer and his 1967 International Harvester Farmall 706 tractor.

Riverboat Roger is around during summer months to help folks launch on the river in our canoe or kayaks. If you ask him to help around the ranch he always seems to have just stepped on a pop top or "can't help right now" because he is "looking for his shaker of salt," but he is always up for a boat ride. He winters in Florida.

Winter Wrangler Wroger takes care of the animals when the other Rogers are curled up in a warm bed covered in five blankets. He migrates north in the spring and comes back in the fall.

All of these Rogers answer to "Mr. Roger."
Welcome to Mr. Rogers' Ranch and Resort.
Won't you be our neighbor?

Janitor Roger failed to show up on picture day so we don't have a good photo of him yet.

Handyman Roger's photo is excluded because Wrangler Roger denied his requiest to be shown here.
