Rumi has returned from his Wild West Adventure at Drowsy Water Ranch, and his mom has provided me with some photos to share with you guys. She wanted to write a very long ‘thank you’ note to everyone, but I assured her that seeing Rumi have a great time would be more than enough thanks for everyone who donated. Here’s a little excerpt from a long recap of the trip that she sent me.
"He got quite good at identifying a significant number of the herd (they have 121) and would get up early to watch them come in from pasture, feed them, and would stay at the stables until late to feed them again and watch them go out at night. Just being with the horses, feeding them, watching them, getting to know them, being treated like a regular ranch-hand by the wranglers who let him lug around buckets of feed in the mud…that really was the most soul-filling thing for him. He is a different person for this."
