Known as the Wildhorse Ranch and consisting of nearly 21,000 acres, located immediately northeast of the city of Van Horn. Conveniently located near I-10 and State Highway 54, the ranch is dramatically set between the Baylor Mountains to the west, and the Delaware Mountains to the east, with convenient additional access along FM 2185. The lesser and nearer formations of the Beach, Apache and, Wylie Mountains form the more immediate skylines on nearly every side and form the visible boundaries of the Wild Horse Flat. The ranch generally sits on the level and fertile plains but gives rise to the west into the foothills of the Baylor Mountains.
The majority of the subject property is located within the 100‐year floodplain, according to FEMA Maps. The floodplain is primarily caused by Wildhorse Creek, Sulphur Creek, and Hackberry Creek, which are wet weather creeks accommodating drain waters from nearby mountainous terrain. However, it should be noted that there is a large floodwater diversion dam on the property, measuring nearly eight and a half miles in the western portion constructed by Culberson County to assist in draining stormwater southwestward to feed into the lower end of Hackberry Creek.
Perimeter fencing is in exceptional shape in nearly all parts, and cross-fencing is mostly adequate.
One domestic water well serves the ranch with an extensive piping system to water troughs across the pastures. One set of cattle pens on FM 2185 serves the ranch. Interior ranch roads are fair but largely offset by extensive paved frontages on multiple sides. A 50 X 100 shop building and a 40 x 100 Quonset barn add to the function of the ranch.
Wildhorse Ranch, though at one time largely irrigated as farmland, reportedly has no availability of acquiring historical use water permits. However, it should be noted that a purchaser may have the option of acquiring limited non‐historical use water permits upon application with the groundwater district.
