Natasha was hosting a Wine and Goat Cheese party to raise funds for her daughter's school. Previous owners of Redwood and Nimbus recommended she borrow a couple goats that would enjoy visiting with her guests. Mud Pie and Bubblegum were happy to oblige and even got to have a sleepover!
We heard the party was a great success! Natasha made a generous donation to our Foundation. Thank you.
Previous owners of Felix and Diego, our new llamas, donated hay for them. This wonderful crew gave up a Sunday morning to pick up the donation. Our volunteer from Thunder Ridge, Elizabeth, had help from her dad and her grandpa who came from Minnesota to visit and help. Justin and son Kash also helped. Thanks everyone!!
Miss Roxanne gets help to doctor favorite Belgin De Anvers Rooster, Cowboy, with help from volunteers.
Angalee walks Stage Stop Nathan Detroit. She and her sister Jaylynn from Thunder Ridge came with their mom Lorien to help with chores. Jaylynn worked with the new Alpacas, Felix and Diego, to get them used to TLC.
Dawson and his brother Ashty go to RMSEL and came with mom, Susan, to help with chores.
Ashty has not been here for a while and Bucky remembered him.
Bucky was happy to have lots of TLC. Inna and Samantha were working on projects assigned by their Thunder Ridge teacher. Sophia from RMSEL helped with all the chores. We were glad to have such good help on such a cold day.
Felt like spring and all the animals wanted to go for a walk!!:)
On the way home Dealer decided to go on an adventure. :(
Good thing Lorien was here and knew how to bring him home!!!!
All home safe and sound. What an adventure. We had such a good group of helpers from Parker Core Knowledge:Tatiana, Maggie,Anna,Shima,Megan,Lauren, and Joon. Lorien and her two daughters, Jaylynn and Angalee. Then we had our regulars, Michelle and granddaughter Gabby. Kevin is such a regular and a great help. Robby was here working on a Thunder Ridge project. Brittany from Cherokee Trail was helping before going to her work. Roxanne and Stephanie are here every weekend to make sure all the chores get done. Also special Guests Paloma and Dominic Sundown came up from Colorado Springs. Dominic was able to get the chain for the manure spreader fixed. We could not do what we do with the help of all the wonderful volunteers.
To top off a wonderful morning, our farrier, Aaron Craigie, was able to make time away from his beautiful wife and beautiful new baby girl to trim Toby's feet. Thank everyone for your help!!!!!!
John and Mary came back from wonderful travels to trim Fast Eddy's Feet. They also were given a warm greeting from Valentine who remembered they had helped to splint her broken horn. Little Newt also came around to greet them!
Hess Family came to help walk the animals. This was their first time here. Paul goes to Sierra and his sister Emily goes to Mammoth Elementary Heights. Samantha from Thunderidge was working on a school project. Grace took time out from rehearsals as Belle in the Mountain Vista production of Beauty and the Beast to help walk the animals.
The ponies Toby, Starbucks and Bandit enjoyed their walk in the woods. Elizabeth and Grace were good leaders and helpers to our new volunteers.
Elizabeth made a return visit. She is a senior and going to CSU in Pre Vet. She is also a member of CALF in Castle Rock. When she first started as a volunteer she was as tall as llama Elizabeth's back.
Then Elizabeth had time for a visit to Terolyn to help pick up a grain order. She also worked with Ryann and Kolbi to brush horses.
