Service opportunities!

We hope you enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends!  We were blessed with scrumptious food and relaxing fellowship.

Now…it’s on to water lines and hay!  We are excited to share that we are putting in water lines for the animals!  After six years of running hoses from the house, we are digging trenches and running hydrants.  YAY!  Strong backs welcome next Friday and Saturday, December 1-2, to dig and set up our hydrants and waterers.

The horses need hay!  We need help putting up an additional 100 bales of hay this weekend.  Are you available on Friday or Saturday, November 24-25?  Join us for an hour or two.  All ages of Ranch Hands welcome.  Jeans, long sleeves, tennis shoes or boots, and gloves recommended.  (We have some available as well.)

Please let us know you’re coming. Call or text Kaarin at 303-898-5567.

If you’re shopping for Christmas, let us know if you’re interested in a Guided Hope t-shirt ($10) or hat ($15)!
