On Friday, we helped this wonderful soul cross the Rainbow Bridge. Patches was owned and loved by Sharon Ritch and her family. She was one of the most patient, kind and loving souls that we have had the pleasure of caring for. Patches loved children, and taught so many how to ride! She was the pony for all 8 of Sharons' grandchildren. She will be missed terribly, but we are able take comfort knowing she is well, and that she was deeply loved by so many.
