You can find us approximately/about 10 km from Písek in the countryside at the woods. Our big house on the hill surrounded with black horses on the 26 ha meadows is quite noticeable.
The breed of Mérens horses is the main realm of Ranch Ixion. To make the life for horses as much similar as in France, they stay at the meadows all year long, feeding on hay only during the winter. In June, we let our stallion into the herd of bred mares for two months, at that time it's up to him to choose the ones to breed. Together with them in the nature, there are little foals born in May. The mares are foaling by themselves and usually in the morning, there is already a foal running around. For the rest of the year, our stallion shares pasture with young horses except mares. During summer holidays, when the mares are working with children who came to join the camp, the foals are staying with the rest of the herd in the paddock.

They say the best view in the world can be seen from between a horse's ears, but also to watch the horses at the pasture or to watch the foals playing together can bring peace to ones soul, as you can find out a tour place.
Beside horses, you can find here another farm animals. There are also Czech brown goats, Cameroon sheep or french hens called Marans.
Life in contact with nature. But the most important thing we try, in these hurried days, is to devolve calm, peace and a friendly atmosphere on our visitors.
