Princess Pony

It is of the heaviest Heart & Soul I write this post.
Princess Pony fell and was down when we entered her stall today. She was calling, and Kathryn called Ben, together, we got her up again on her hooves. She had this time an injury, appeared in her knee, but it was actually, in her shoulder, when the ER Vet came out.
Earlier, Kathryn spoke with Dr. Wilbers, and we did and did do all that was recommended, but it was not helping. Then Dr. Murphy, the ER vet came out….to learn it was her shoulder…
Kathryn & Ben had to make a very difficult decision, but long term the right, to stop the pain and discomfort for Princess Pony. We made the decision to euthanize her.
She went quickly and peacefully. Princess Pony touched so many from “pony” rides, to taking her geriatric walks around the ranch by her own. Princess Pony was from a bad divorce, where she was not cared for or fed for a whole week. We were so glad to rescue her and her daughter Cookie. MiMi, has been calling for Princess Pony today…..It’s so very sad, full of grief and loss.
Princess Pony, she was our “Queen” of the ranch,and did have a golden Life here at TGMR. She was 40 years old, with a brain tumor, no teeth, almost blind, but she got around herself, until today. I am full of tears…..Live Long Princess Pony in memory…and in our hearts

Kathryn’s Birthday Fundraiser!


For Kathryn’s birthday this year, The Gress Mountain Ranch is asking for donations to support the animals. 

TGMR is in its 21st year. It’s a lot of years devoted to animals of all walks of life, caring for them, providing a “forever” home, and guiding them when they cross the rainbow bridge.
The most unique & intimate human-animal bond like no other is connected in hopes of TGMR’s mission. Animals Helping People & People Helping Animals.
It’s been Kathryn’s life long dream, when she first took her step into the pathway of nursing. Kathryn has chosen this public charity because their mission and the true dedication 2 Gress folks have given in these years.
TGMR’s hope is that you’ll consider contributing as a way to celebrate with Kathryn. Every little bit will help TGMR reach this goal and hopefully, continue alittle longer.
Thank you from the Animals & 2 Gress Folks, for your support, your care, & your love, FB friends.
100% of your donation goes directly to the TGMR public charity.
