Volunteer of the Month

Sandy Osterberg with Amigo

Our horses (and donkey) receive top care thanks to our leader and the cadre of volunteers who give their time and love to these amazing creatures.  Each month we spotlight just one of our terrific vvolunteers even though we are grateful to each one, every day!

Our August Spotlight "I don't mind getting dusty and dirty!" volunteer started giving her time to LPR horses February 2015.  Sandy and her firefighter husband raised their three boys in Valley center surrounded by lots of animals, including horses.  Returning to North San Diego County when her sons were grown, Sandy looked for ways to serve her community. led her to LPR, the perfect fit for her love of being outdoors and being with horses.  Each week at LPR and at many special LPR events, Sandy makes a big difference in the lives of our horses that she calls "simply awesome!"

Sandy says she was "a stay at home mom", but she also ran a house cleaning business - sounds more like two full-time jobs!  No wonder she is extra picky about clean mats in the corrals!

Hard as it is to believe, Sandy is a grandmother of two boys with another due this fall!  She treasures spending time with these little ones, being at the beach, and taking long walks with her dog Grit, an Australian cattle dog/Queensland Heeler.  Her newest love is the massage she gets after a hard day working at the Ranch.  Smart woman!
