and this is why I work for free

HIS Ranch is...
  • loving God, loving horses, and loving people (not necessarily, but quite possibly, in that order)
  • passing on your passion
  • finding random bugs on yourself and others
  • "Well, it's in God's hands." ... "Ain't that the truth!"
  • people who smile because they really are really happy (not just polite)
  • that barn smell
  • work & play - and all at the same time!
  • discovering that horses... well, they're just like us
  • "The best day ever!!"
  • pony ride after pony ride after pony ride...
  • wet, slobbery puppy kisses
  • willing hearts and working hands
  • the contented sigh when you take your boots off
  • not his ranch, but His ranch
  • remembering all those names - or at least attempting
  • a playful whinny and a friendly nuzzle
  • wearing jeans when it's 101.7 degrees
  • elated smiles
  • learning more from a horse than any human could ever teach you
  • being paid in popsicles
  • the soft, smooth horse's hair you just brushed
  • riding your favorite
  • loving. learning. empowering.
