On July 2nd, 2018, Promise Ranch said a heartbroken goodbye to our beloved gentle giant, Yetti the Norwegian Fjord.
Yetti was a teddy bear by nature and took great care with each and every one of his special riders. Tributes have been pouring in as our community remembers him as an 'amazing, gentle, precious, special, sweet, big, kind, spirit horse.' Yetti was an exceptional soul on this Earth and his departure has left a giant hole in many hearts.
However, as much as we are all hurting and missing him right now, he would not want us wallowing in our grief. Yetti would want nothing more than for us to continue his important healing work by purposefully moving on in partnership with our other amazing therapy horses to honor his legacy.
With this in mind, Yetti's owners Margaret and Buddy, have requested that we honor Yetti and his legacy of healing by launching the Yetti Memorial Fund. This fund will be used specifically to support the health and well-being of our healing horses. All donations made to the Yetti Memorial Fund will ensure Yetti's equine friends receive the best possible care including but not limited to routine and emergency veterinary visits, dental treatments, chiropractic and massage care, and saddle fitting.
At Promise Ranch, our horses are the heart of our program and as their guardians, it is our job to ensure they stay healthy, sound, and happy so they can fulfill their purpose of providing hope and healing to all who have a need.
Thank you for remembering Yetti and for supporting his ongoing legacy.
