Makes my day.

 No matter what type of day one is having working at the ranch is very uplifting. The animals are our earthly charges and we are to take care and not abuse them. Kathryn and Ben Gress have devoted their lives to helping animals and animals helping people. What a noble cause. It is not a play date but a dedication to helping the Gress' continue their worhwhile effort. You will received more than you are giving. So forget your troubles by giving your time and talents at the Gress Mtn. Ranch
