Great news!


It seems that that there is no contract on any of properties around our farm, and SPIRIT seems to be able to relax for now. 
Let's get ready to show our SPIRIT May 23rd at the Frying Pan Park !
Thank you all who offer us support during previous several weeks when we were scared of possible end of our program.
SPIRIT is alive smile emoticon


Even we still do not have a long term Home, it is a good to know that our programs are safe for now.
Home for SPIRIT Campaign will be ongoing for any scenario in future...

Thank you 4H friends!

Thank you 4H Group and Sarah Turner for your work last Saturday!
Cleaning our tackroom and taking care of our tack makes a difference smile emoticon
Your friendship means a lot to us smile emoticon

Welcome Salome/Sally!

Family, friends, and fans of Spirit meet the herd's newest mare, Salome aka Sally! She arrived from New Jersey this afternoon and is settling right in with a nice grooming, hay, carrots and apples and new friends! We believe she is about 11 yrs old and she's seeming to be very calm and easy going!

Thank you SPIRIT volunteers!


The key to our success
rests in people like you,
who embody the spirit of greatness
by saying, "Yes I can, and so can you!"
Thanks for your inspiring dedication
and tremendous example to the world.


Now that our work is finished,
we say good bye with sad yet grateful hearts.
We want to thank you for your dedication,
and being there from the very start.
Words cannot convey our gratitude
for your tremendous contribution.


With gratitude in our hearts
for your contributions to our cause,
we wanted to thank you with this card
as our personal round of applause.
The credit for our good deeds
firmly rests with our dedicated volunteers.
Thank you!


Thank you so much
for all of your hard work
and to bear witness to your passion
was an unexpected perk.
We never could have asked
for a more dedicated volunteer
and words cannot express
how grateful we are to have you here.
It is a pleasure and a privilege to work with you.
Thank you.
