“The Best Vitamin for Making Friends is B-1”

Ranger ~ AKA "Baby Girl" 5/6/05 – 10/16/20
Our ranch dog Ranger finished her earth walk in the crisp early New Mexico morning, courageous till the end. We were fortunate to have an Army Ranger, a US Marine, an USAF Airman and a Green Beret, here for the last Cowboy Up! session of the year who provided a fitting “detail” to send Ranger off in a way befitting of the healer she was to so many over the 12 years of Horses For Heroes NM Cowboy Up! and Wisdom Way For Warriors. She will be missed by those who were blessed to have had her by their side, or at their feet as they were on their own journey to healing.
