It was that time of year again! All the animals gathered together to play and love on all our wonderful volunteers this Christmas! The barn was full of Holiday spirit as the animals ran around and entertained all of our warm hearted friends. Here are some of the pictures that we took from that snowy Christmas morning so you can get a feel of how happy the animals were to play!

Winter is here and so are some new Holiday animals! Lambert and the Dixie chicks pictured below are all socializing and getting into the Holiday spirit as they meet the rest of the gang! They have been welcomed with open arms and are fitting in great with the other friends. As for Nugget the Rooster, he is fluffing up and getting ready for the Holiday season with his black and white coat... He's been a nice addition to the farm and we are looking forward to spending the Holidays with the new additions!

Thank You So Much Oppenheimer Funds for getting involved and meeting the animals! We enjoyed having you and appreciate the mention in your ad! The trees you planted will last a lifetime and we could not be more excited to witness them grow!
"On December 10, 2015 the 5280 Investments team volunteered at the Edwards Foundation for Rescued Animals. This is a delightful family owned large animal no-kill shelter located in Parker. They care for all kinds of large animals including horses, goats, llamas, donkeys and a bunch of chickens, ducks and turkeys. The animals are all very gentle and friendly. You can tell that they are well cared for!
The team planted about 15 trees that had been donated by a local nursery, painted barn doors, repaired stall doors, and various other chores. We made a small dent in the “to do” list, but got the top priorities done! And of course we took some time to just play with the animals! We were very lucky to have the weather cooperate for us on this mid-December Colorado day!"
The 8 year old Madori found her new home when Kim came by and had the perfect place for her! We are keeping in touch and happy that Midori will have a warm place with lots of love just in time for the Holidays! With the new year just around the corner, Kim is excited to start off 2016 knowing Midori now has a place to call home. Midori will have a wonderful companion to share the Holidays with, a male cat who already loves Kim's home.

Like busy ants getting ready for the winter, the folks from OppeneheimerFunds came for two days to work for the animals. They cleaned the barn, painted the benches, and worked on the fences. They decorated the tack door, cleaned up the dogs’ floor, picked up lots of poo, and loved on the animals! It was a grand success! We hope they will all come back and thank them!
