Red Skelton's Paradise Valley

Red loved his valley, the ranch and the horses. He was at peace between a busy schedule traveling between stage performances and art exhibits. The ranch was his recharging station, beckoning fresh ideas and creativity. 

Red had entered a new phase in his life, tending and assisting with raising and caring for the horse breeding operation. He loved the magic moment of birth as the mares got closer to foaling. He sensed their anxiety and they trusted him. 

He took endless photos and videos, always prepared with a camera. His hands were gentle and tender, and the stallions and mares--especially the babies--loved him. 

The ranch was his peace and tranquility.
