The Baake Family

Please join us in raising funds related to the unexpected passing of Steve Baake. Steve was truly "one of the good ones." He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend to so many. He lived every day to its fullest and always kept a smile on his face. Steve is well known in the horse community through his work as a farrier for many years and his passion for roping, riding, and training horses. He has helped so many people and horses throughout his life and left behind a legacy that will live on forever. We are asking for funds to help cover funeral/medical expenses, as well as help to keep his dream farm stay afloat for his family and horses. We appreciate your help through this extremely difficult transition.
