Our beloved Scooter, the oldest horse in the HOPE Ranch herd, passed away at age 34 this fall. He nuzzled his pasture mates goodbye, then walked out to pasture and lay down next to D’Angela’s grave. HOPE Ranch staff and neighbors were with him as he passed. Scooter was a retired Paso Fino show horse with a huge heart, a ton of Brio, and an amazing ability to read and respond to the good in people – most noticeably when they didn’t see it themselves. Scooter was part of the HOPE Ranch herd since he was 13, until his passing. All who helped care for him will remember the “Scooter Game” – no one ever caught Scooter unless he decided he was ready to be caught.
