Colour V featured on CBC 1 Day documentary Sunday

The Colour V Ranch at Rose Lake will be one of the profiles shown in the CBC’s 1 Day documentary airing this Sunday Night, Aug. 21 at 8 p.m.

1 Day celebrates CBC’s 75th anniversary in a unique 24-hour portrait of Canada captured by filmmakers across the country on April 30 of this year.

CBC filmmakers travelled from coast to coast, capturing the lives of remarkable characters in a single day. From inside the control room at Hockey Night in Canada, to backstage with an opera diva … from the horse pen on a remote ranch to back alleys with cops on the beat, the crews were there, says the CBC promotion for the event.

Colour V Ranch owners Cheryl and Peter Van Immerzeel and their three children Elizabeth, 6, Trace, 4,  and Zadie-Lynn, 18 months, were chosen to represent Canada’s farm families in the documentary.

“CBC filming on April 30 for the documentary show 1 Day went well at Colour V and we look forward to watching the show on Aug. 21, where Colour V Ranch, and other Canadians will be featured,” says Cheryl.

Cheryl says they were surprised when they got the call from CBC saying they were chosen for the documentary.

“I guess they found our website and liked what they saw,” says Cheryl, who built their website herself.

The couple started the Colour V Ranch in 2001 while they were living in Alberta.

A few years later in 2004 they invested in acreage on Rose Lake.

Then in 2007 they bought their 220-acre ranch on Spokin Lake Road where they live and raise quality AQHA Quarter Horses, APHA Paints, ApHCC/ApHC Appaloosas, and Percheron Morgan crosses with added colour, hence the ranch name Colour V.

“We focus on dun, grullo, palomino, buckskin, gray, black, red dun, roans, and even champagne; also some with paint and appy markings,” say the couple.

They raise horses with good conformation,  bloodlines, and dispositions which are bred and used for barrel racing, roping, cutting, reining, team penning, gymkhana, ranch work, halter, western and English pleasure, mountain riding, and more.

They offer their customers the chance to pick and choose their own breeding of a foal as well as stud service with their stallions.

They also offer riding lessons and raise Aussie Border Collie pups and swine.

Both Cheryl and Peter are leaders in the Rose Lake/Miocene 4-H Club and Peter volunteers with the local fire department.

During the 1 Day filming event at the Colour V activities at the farm included weaning piglets from their mothers, early morning checks on mares ready to foal, and a 4-H grooming workshop.

During the 1 Day event CBC also invited the public to take and submit videos for a contest.

Some of those clips will also be included in the documentary to air Sunday. The grand prize and other prizes winners for the submitted documentaries were to be announced today, Aug. 18.
