Bad Two Days . . . .

We lost two great animal friends this week. Our ferret, Josie passed away from old age

and our rescue project horse, Joe, who came here starved for food and attention  had to gallop off and leave us.  He arrived almost as a skeleton with fur and as hard as all our volunteers tried with medication and great food and hay, we were losing the battle to make Joe better.

But we here at Rainbow Ranch were better for knowing him.  His gentle whinnie when I came to the barn  to feed him 3 times a day, His kind gentle way with everyone who brushed him or loved on him, he was a true gentleman.  And even his sweet nuzzle as I brushed him this morning to take him to the vet, let me know he knew I would do what was best for him.

To everyone who helped with Joe, Thank You.  To Wendy and Heidi, to the amazing Dreamcatchers 4-H group, to Joyce, Beth, Chris, Kenni,  Adric and Cody, Ziggy and Matt -Thank you and to Joe, Thank you for letting all of us have a chance to know you.

Gallop out of here my friend and right over the Rainbow Bridge ……….. we will all miss you!!!
