This is Dex, a three year old, crypt-orchid (testicles have not descended) buckskin. He is just one of several we were able to rescue from the Crested Butte area horses destined for slaughter in Mexico. Dr. Dale Rice was the vet who worked with us to bring them back to health during their quarantine period. Thanks to the hard work of our volunteer Roxanne who wrote a letter to Colorado State University's teaching hospital we were able to get surgery for Dex at a greatly reduced rate. Thanks to a generous donation from Bill, Jill and their family we can pay the reduced rate and surgery is scheduled for January 2nd.

The Edwards Foundation would like to thank all the patrons of Dover's Saddlery in Parker who selected us to receive requested animal care supplies. This is Dover's second annual Giving Tree.Jason and Diane, two volunteers, are pleased to accept the donations from Tracy.
When it was time for Corbin to load up to go to his new home he loaded easily.
The animals got running around and the Zebu cow (Boscus Indicus) fell, flipped and broke one horn off and severely damaged her other horn.
Come visit her. She loves special attention.

Max shows where he left his scout mark in the cement of the feed room floor. This job took many hours of hard work in the heat and dust of the barn. The 4 yards of cement had to be rolled into the barn one wheelbarrow at a time! His troop members were working right there with him. Cement on the feed-room floor saved the Edwards Foundation almost $100 a month. Moisture could seep into the dirt and cause the hay to spoil. The mice had freeway tunnels to the grain storage and helped themselves to an endless supply of oats. No more! Thank you Max!

Jackson got lots of help with his Eagle project to build a duck house and a turkey house for our feathered friends. He and his troop members worked hard to design a predator-proof structure. We appreciate all their hard work.

Dr. David Barton from Integrative Wellness group in Castle Rock came out to do an equine chiropractic adjustment on Goldie the 24 year old quarter horse with a hunters lump. He found that the lump was not calcified--good news. He worked on her SI (sacroiliac) joints. After this adjustment she was relaxed and able to better collect her back legs under her.

Here are the girls from Scout Troop 3272. They spent the summer working on a Bronze and a Silver project. After months of work they arrive with nesting box mats and flooring for the chicken nest box they spent the summer working on. They came as early as 6 am so they could work before the temperature reached triple digits. Leaders are Diana and Dina. Scouts are Audra, Brooklyn, Cade, Grace, Lauren, Maria, Paxton, Robin, Skylar, and Sydney.
Here they check out the art work to keep the chickens happy while they nest.
