Alpaca's new home

 Our alpacas were adopted on Wednesday to a new wonderful home. Q is offloaded from the trailer and he is very excited.
 Poden, Blue, and Q are smelling and seeing all the new sights and smells of their new home.
Our three alpacas will fit right in with their new heard. We are very happy they found such a great forever home.

Dog food donation

 We got a donation of dog food. It will go to good use and our dogs love it. This was arranged by Jamie. We shared the dog food with another rescue, Terrolyn horse rescue, and vet tech Shawna.


Scouts visit

A few weeks ago, a group of scouts came to help out the farm.

 Lynda tells everyone about Toby the pony.
 This group of scouts were shown around by our wonderful volunteers Josh and Brian.
 They fed the animals hay after they had cleaned the barn.
To finish the day, the scouts enjoyed making snow angles. We thank the great crew of scouts that came out to the farm.

Visit from Endevor

 A group from Endevor came to visit the farm.
 They were a wonderful help and did a wonderful job.
 They visited the animals and loved meeting the llamas.
They helped clean up around the barn and filled the manure spreader. We thank Endevor so much for coming and helping.

TRAVEL PORT HELPERS

Thanks to Patty for arranging a work day for some of the staff at Travel Port!
 Mark oiled all hinges & sliders! Now we have to be careful because everything moves smoothly and without squeaks. So all the animals were able to stay behind closed doors during the Bomb Cyclone!
 Daniel and crew helped fluff all the beds and stalls with new shavings and fluffy straw.  Fast Eddies gets special attention while Ziggy waits his turn.  Thank you Daniel!

Not only is Jason getting lots of attention from Ziggy, he installed solar lights and replaced tile in the sun room!
Patty scrubs the water trough!
 This wonderful team helped feed all the animals!
                                              Lumberjack Daniel trims some of the trees.
Horse-whisperer Mark helps with Chemo treatment for Dealer.  Dealer just returned from check up at CSU veterinary clinic.  He had eye surgery last week of December to remove tumors from both eyes.
The whole crew bids a fond farewell and Elizabeth & Nathan say Please come back soon!
Thank you Patty, Jason, Daniel & Mark!!!!!!
