Build your ideal ranch and we'll tell you which TV Western it belongs in

Would yours be more like the McCain ranch or the Ponderosa?


On classic Westerns like The Big Valley and Bonanza, the homes each family lives in are an integral part of both series. And on The Rifleman, plenty of action takes place on the McCain's simple but practical ranch.

If you could build your own ranch from the ground up, which style would you choose? Would it have a mansion or a cozy log cabin? Would it be in the mountains, the desert or the Great Plains?

Now's your chance to see which TV Western best fits your aesthetic tastes! Build your ideal ranch using these questions and see the series it would fit into.

  1. Where would you build your ranch?
  2. What type of fence would your ranch have?
  3. What kind of animals would you raise on your ranch?
  4. Which barn would you have on your ranch?
  5. What would your ranch house look like?
  6. What would the inside of your house look like?
  7. What decorations would you have around your ranch?
  8. How would you name your ranch?

I like farm animals, but I've also been around them enough to know you really have to love them to get used to the smells. Poultry farms were the worst, pigs-swine next. I'm almost partial to cattle pasture smells, probably because they were everywhere in my area long ago and got used to the smell of wet grass that had been treated, so to speak. Horses, too, have that unmistakable scent that requires a person to really love their presence - and of course then there were the times I'd be out there with a shovel when a horse let loose on pavement because a neighbor forgot to exercise their mount on the grass...

Your ranch would be on Maverick!

You would want your ranch to reflect your tastes and hobbies. It would have plenty of room for leisurely activities like a good card game.
