Loss of a good friend

Friday March 7, 2014, The world lost a great advocate for donkeys, an equine judge, a wonderful teacher, and a good friend, Crystal Ward from Ass-Pen Ranch in Placerville, California died. 

Many of us have known her for a number of years and many of us have learned a great deal about donkeys from her.She has done many things in stopping the abuse of donkeys and has educated so many on proper care and training of equines.  She has been always helpful and she will be truly missed.

Lets say a prayer for her and her loved ones.

Crystal's family and Jan Jensen have created a memorial website where people will be able to post pictures, thoughts and memories. Any planned celebrations of life can be posted to this website so people can attend. The site can be accessed at: http://www.greenvalleymortuary.com/sitemaker/sites/greenv0/obit.cgi?user=1266260Ward.

Crystal dedicated her entire lifetime with equines, from training, breeding and running a boarding facility, which amounts to nearly five decades of equine involvement. In 1997 The Ass-Pen Ranch opened its doors to the public, designed with both breeding and training in mind.

Crystal was a judge in the following Associations: American Mule Assn. - since 1995, National Miniature Donkey Assn. - since 1996, North American Saddle Mule Assn. - (Senior Judge) - since 1995, American Donkey and Mule Society - since 1985, International Side-Saddle Organization - since 1981 and American Miniature Horse Assn. - since 1993.

She was instrumental in having the public become aware of the donkeys and burros that have suffered through countless decades of abuse and neglect through the hands of mankind and in the wilds through environmental stress and harsh conditions. Her dedication will be honored with an Interactive Educational Center named after her at the Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue Visitors Center in Texas

Mark Meyers from Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue in Texas is heir to the property and all the animals. He will be handling all aspects of care and transport of the animals to his rescue site. At this time, no additional help has been requested. Mark already has plans underway to construct a special memorial building in Crystal's name where momentos, awards, and photos will be on display. It will be showcased in the Interactive Educational Center where visitors can enjoy visiting with her friendly donkeys and mules as well. Eventually, Mark will ask for any photos or stories to be sent to him directly for display.


Rub a Donkeys Nose for Good Luck
Rubbing a donkey's nose is like bring kissed by a fairy, or hearing an angel singing in your attic or favorite tree.
It is magical, it brings music to the soul, it heals and prolongs life, it brings hope and promise, it fills your heart with joy.
People who know and love donkeys know their power and their spirit.
If you rub a donkeys' nose, the angels and the fairies will swarm around you and watch out for you and yours. So remember to Rub a donkey's nose,
I know that you will like it.
