Blaster the Burro


Blaster is an oversized miniature Burro, and lives at Laughing Valley Ranch in Idaho, Springs. He has been the CSM mascot for the majority of his life and journeys to CSM for football games and many other school activities. He also spends his time going on pack trips and racing over the mountain passes of Colorado in Pack Burro Races associated with the Western Pack Burrow Association.

Blue Key takes care of Blaster while he is on campus and periodically volunteers on the ranch where he lives.  Our primary objective is to keep Blaster and those around him safe. Please take the time to read our set of guidelines for interacting with Blaster.
