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 🙂

Welcome, Valentino!

Violet, one of our Nigerian Dwarf does, had a beautiful baby buckling!  Valentino, Italian for “brave,” arrived Tuesday night.  He weighs about 5 pounds.  He’s cuddled in with mom to stay warm during our April snow showers.    Although it’s chilly, we praise God for the moisture for our hay field and our new arrival!

Berthoud Days

Berthoud Days was amazing!  We gathered up our Nigerian Dwarf babies and Ginger, our LaMancha for a walk through town.  The youngest babies got to ride in the wagon.  Vanessa got a prime seat riding with Elizabeth.  Our new banner introduced Guided Hope and the kids handed out candy…Jolly Ranchers, of course!  Afterwards we set up a booth at the park complete with our rabbit, Patience, and the Nigerians who attracted many visitors.  With the help of wonderful volunteers, we shared GH information throughout the afternoon with hundreds of people.   Since then, we have been hosting numerous new volunteers and getting the word out to individuals and families that we are here for them!

Our May 2nd Guided Hope Ranch Day!

We shared a wonderful day with volunteers and guests at our May 2nd Guided Hope Ranch Day Open House!  We were blessed with incredible weather to play and ride.  Our volunteers started early setting up parking, registration, activities, art, t-shirts, snacks, games, gardening, horseback riding, and animal barn tours!   It was a day of fellowship and fun with our guests and volunteers.  We were fortunate to have tripled the number of volunteers involved, created awareness of our program in the community, and provided information for financial stewardship so that we can offer our Roundups free of charge this summer!

Amazingly, the rest of May it seemed to rain daily. Even the pigs were tired of the mud!   Now we’re back in business with beautiful green grass after the rain and the animals are eager to graze.
