I was introduced to this wonderful place by my neighbor Nancy Elkins. She and I go out there to help Bev in any way that we can. I have only been involved for a few months, but during that time I have seen many miraculous things happen. Whether it be a horse coming in that was abused in some way and then see the progression of the love and kindness to transform that animal into a trusting loving creature is beyond words. To see a child with a learning or physical challenge, become at one with such an animal is truly the most beautiful thing you'll ever see. Besides these things, it brings me personally to a new place in my own mind and heart that is better than any place I've ever been in my life.
Bravo Bev, may God keep you here for a long, long time to continue your unselfish care of those who need you.
