$1.1 million later, Moondrift Morgan Horse farm goes to CSU celebrity

FORT COLLINS, Colorado -- Many of you may remember Moondrift Farm and June Baker, who for decades raised, trained and showed Morgan Horses with her husband, Robert Baker. The 45-acre Moondrift Farm property at 1108 N. Lemay Ave. was sold to genetic sex-selection company X Y LLC many years ago, and recently came back on the market. One of our local celebrities, Colorado State University athletic director Jack Graham, purchased the property for $1.1 million in October, according to the Northern Colorado Business Report. June Baker is forever remembered around here by all the adults who learned to love horses at her place as children. Hmm ... one wonders if this is a development investment. It is so sad when another local farm bites the dust. I just had coffee with a stable owner who has put their place on the market. Caught between the Great Recession, drought, hay prices, land use regulations, and property taxes, horse people are slowly being sqeezed out.
