    If anybody's wondering why it's named after one of John Wayne's most famous characters, it's because John Wayne loved that area of Arizona. He had a very large cattle ranch, for a while, that was located between Maricopa and Stanfield, and had other properties scattered in the Maricopa-Stanfield-Casa Grande area.

    Also, the family who owns the place is named Cogburn, and descended from the real Franklin "Rooster" Cogburn, the real-life individual whose name Charles Portis apparently borrowed for the True Grit character.

    Just wanted to mention that during the COVID-19 crisis, the ranch is offering an Adopt A Critter program so you can help make sure the animals are provided for during the shutdown. See the website for details.
