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.

The family raise and sell quality AQHA Quarter Horses, APHA Paints, ApHCC/ApHC Appaloosas, and Percheron Morgan crosses with added colour, as well as swine and Aussie Border Collie pups.

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.
