Philmont Scout Ranch hosts more than 18,000 Scouts every summer for a variety of reasons. Most are there for backpacking in the pristine Sangre De Cristo Mountains. Others are there for the training center. Many see the Villa Philmonte, the summer home of Philmont's benefactor, Waite Phillips.
Philmont is not only home to Scouts over the summer. One of the stipulations of the donation of the land to Philmont by Waite Phillips was that it remain a working ranch. Burros, horses, and a herd of buffalo all reside within Philmont.
Philmont's livestock has two brands, a rarity among livestock ownership, as one may only have one brand registered per group. One brand is registered to the Boy Scouts of America, and the other is registered to the Ranch itself.
A wise man once told me that at his home on the farm he didn't know anyone brave enough to brand a buffalo or anyone stupid enough to brand a burro, but, at Philmont, the burros are branded.
