Meet Our team

Welcome to the McKee Family


Chearl McKee

Sales Manager

Younger daughter Chearl who was born and raised in Three Rivers, spent 40 years in Laguna Beach, California.  As an accomplished massage therapist for over 27 years, Chearl developed her people skills and grew her diplomacy muscles. She moved back home to help the family in 2017 and began helping with the family business.  She now communicates with interested buyers making sure they have the latest information from the BAR O RANCH RANCH . Cell Phone always in hand, she takes many of the photos for our fb and website page. Everyday ranch chores and getting the word out  on our beautiful horses  keeps her on the run.

Linda McKee Amaral

Business Manager

Oldest daughter Linda, a retired College Dance teacher, has returned to the homestead to run the finances, manages the web site and keeps an eye on the past, present and future of the BAR O QUARTER HORSE program. Linda is not afraid of hard work and proves it daily. She loves to ride and of course tend to the grandchildren when she can. We couldn’t have asked for a better Owner to be a part of our team.
