Two New Ranch Hands at The Horse Shelter

New Ranch Hands

So just like our horses, the ranch hands come and they go.  We said goodbye to Jesse just last week but now have two new ranch hands to welcome into the fold…   Traci wrote,  Matt S. recently joined our team and is new to the horse world but ready and willing to learn and will be at the Ranch Thursday-Sunday.  Welcome to the team, Matt!”  (see 1st pic)  And… “Hershey (Rachel) joins us after volunteering this summer and fall as our newest ranch hand!  She is going by Hershey, her nickname while she worked at Girl Scout Camp (with Traci, by the way!), so we don’t get her and our other Rachel confused!  Hershey has extensive experience with equines and had worked and trained at a donkey rescue in CO before coming back to NM.  We are happy to have her on the team!  Thanks, Hershey!”  (just curious if that nickname doesn’t have something to do with a special fondness for chocolate… ??)
