For our GOYR family,

We are coming to the end of a wonderful summer and I wanted to bring you up to date on a topic associated with our equine (that’s fancy for horse) program – and ask for your help.

As you know, we welcomed two new horses to our GOYR stables and both Shiloh and Wyndham are working out very well for us. These additions were paid for with dollars we had budgeted months ago, knowing they would be needed for our growing program demand. What we did not budget for, however, were some unexpected veterinary bills that came from care provided to two members of our current horse family – Skye and Bear. These expenses have subsequently reduced the amount dedicated to horse feed for the remainder of the year. We need to raise approximately $4,000 to adequately feed our horses through the winter months.

I greatly appreciate the support you provide to GOYR and hope you know how prudently we use your money. If you’re able and willing to provide additional support so that we can close this gap, we will not need to tap into our emergency fund. You can provide a one-time gift or a monthly amount. Anything will help. As always, you can use our online donation option at , mail a check to 8098 County Road 14 Ft. Lupton, Co 80621 or visit with me at the ranch.

Thank you for your prayerful consideration. If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Please share this email with your friends and family who would be interested in donating to this cause. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit youth ranch, and can provide year end donation receipts.

Thank you!

Chalae Cartledge, Founder of Graceful Oaks Youth Ranch
