Fan out to see ranch (6)
I believe the answer is:
This clue is a double definition.
'fan out' is the first definition.
'ranch' is the second definition.
(I know that ranch can be written as spread)
'to see' acts as a link.
(Other definitions for spread that I've seen before include "expansion?" , "Distribute or disperse widely" , "Unfold - scatter" , "Special display" , "Apply in a smooth coating" .)
