Ash came to the ranch in June of 2010.  At first, Ash was skinny and beat up from being picked on in his other pasture and was the lowest guy in the pecking order.  After months of confidence building and training, Ash moved up with the big guys, Solomon and Alex.  He loves to play and is quite the scrapper.  If you look closely you can see his paint markings, and his hindquarters look like the ashes of a burned out campfire.  In the winter of 2011, he had an unfortunate accident and severely scratched the cornea of his left eye. We were uncertain for a long time if he would keep it. His eye is intact but he cannot see from it.  He has adapted well and can do anything the other horses can do.  He has lived up to his name because he reminds us that beauty always comes from ashes when we trust in the Lord.
