Hello everyone...One last blog about Hero. He is not my horse, he lives at Crystal Peak youth ranch in
Bend Oregon. I found his story while looking for therapy horses for blogs. I thought it was an important story to share with all of you. Please google Crystal Peaks and see all the horses.
In an effort to help Hero a small group of children from Paisley middle school endured a self proclaimed walk-a-thon and raised $1200 to help buy bandages for his leg. A 5 yr old boy opted to forgo his birthday right to presents and chose to give his b-day money to Hero. Held withing a brown paper bag his gift of $15.00 and several bandages. A stir of publicity around this kind little horse. Hundreds have contacted us with their own story of renewed hope inspired by Hero. One envelope came to the ranch containing nothing but a post-it note. No name or identification, it merely said "I was thinking of ending it all, until I read about Hero. I have decided to change my mind...Thank you. The message of Hero's life is straight forward, "If I can make it, YOU can make it.By his example, he inspires me along with all others to do the same:)
I got these stories from one of the owners of the ranch.I think the story of Hero is a wonderful display of Human and Equine compassion. Tune in tomorrow for some stories from HC members. Joey, Ginger, & Angel Betsy
