Open Ranch Day Highlights!

Over 170 guests and volunteers enjoyed a day of fun in the sun together!  Although we had a snowstorm the day before, Praise God that Sunday afternoon was brimming with new and returning Guided Hope friends.  Kids and adults enjoyed horseback rides.  Baby goats got lots of hugs.  New chicks came out to play.  Llamas showed off their fiber.  Ace archers flew arrows.  Painters decorated barn boards and birdhouses for our new Hope Trail.  Not to mention cupcake decorating for Butterscotch’s birthday!  Many thanks to our amazing volunteers who gave their time and energy to keep everything safe and fun!  It was a blessed day.  We hope to see many families returning for summer Roundups!

Welcome, Jet!

Exciting news! “Jet” has joined our herd! This beautiful, big bay is actually a registered Paint horse, just like Butterscotch. As a former rodeo queen’s horse, he has been around crowds of people and loves the attention. He is careful to walk slowly for a beginner, yet easy to trot. He is ready for kids and adults alike to work on their horsemanship skills… as long as they spend time giving him grooming attention  He has been busy serving guests this month and learning the ropes from Butterscotch, Scout, Zeta, and Smokey. Come and meet Jet!

Butterscotch’s 30th Birthday!

It’s Butterscotch’s 30th Birthday!! We were blessed with this amazing horse as our first donation to the ranch when we started in 2012. He continues to be an incredible teacher to our GH kids. Although he is our tallest horse, he gives confidence to the smallest beginners when they first approach…calming any anxieties as they learn to groom, trust, and prepare for a ride. Yet, he has the experience and movement to put smiles on an advanced rider. Our Wranglers get their exercise keeping up with his extended trot! We are thankful that he continues to look and act like a horse half his age, and always has a heart to serve. Happy Birthday, Butterscotch! Thank you for the hope and encouragement you share with our guests. We love you and look forward to celebrating with you at a special Open Ranch Day on April 30th, from 2-4 p.m.! Stay tuned for details on Butterscotch’s upcoming birthday party 🙂
