Once upon a time, right here in Northern California, there was a young lady named Patricia Jones who had a beautiful black Morgan horse. The two of them traveled all over together going to horse shows and winning lots of ribbons. The horse's name was Ty. After his show ring days, he was ready for a career change. Anyone who has ever been to Trailhead Youth Ranch knows Ty, he's been a part of our ministry for the past eight years. Ty has always been our go-to horse; gentle, willing, and honest as the day is long, he's always been there for us. He's been there for the hundreds of people, young and old, whose lives have been touched by the ministry of Trailhead. Now it's our turn to be there for him. Ty's age is finally catching up with him; he's no longer able to hold up to being ridden, and he needs to be on a special diet now. It's time for him to be retired, and we want to give him the care he deserves. If you'd like to help us take care of Ty, please consider making a monthly or one-time donation* toward the cost of his feed.
Thank you, Ty, for all your years of faithful service at Trailhead Youth Ranch!
