Barn Update


In hopes to stop pigeons from entering the barn, we had a team of volunteers board up the ceiling. Pigeons are a big inconvenience, they eat the animal feed, make a mess of the entire barn, and could potentially spread diseases and parasites. Thank you so much to all the volunteers who helped to hopefully fix this problem.

Update from Patricia (Adopter of Batman and Robin)


We are excited to hear that our beloved goats are happy at their new home. The goats are adapting well to their new family and are making friends with the other animals. The owners' family friend, Rich, has a seven-year-old who has lovingly nicknamed Batman "Billy", and Robin "Joe". 
Even though they are living in a new home, they have not lost their close friendship with one another. Thank you so much Patricia for keeping us updated!

¡Feliz CumpleaƱos!

 This is our loyal volunteer, Dorothy; she is eating Flan at El Mariachi, celebrating her 85th birthday. We are pleased with the service provided at El Mariachi; they put a smile on the face of our dear friend, who has selflessly volunteered here with her husband, Dan, for over two years. The kind people at El Mariachi even sang a happy birthday song for her. Her celebration is well deserved and we're happy to have been with her during this special occasion.

Kitten Adoption

"Our time with Belle is great! I like how she likes to play with her toys and keep us up at night, even when we have hard times she will be loved. It's the best thing that has ever happened to us."
-Max and Savanna

We are going to miss our little furry friend, but we are so glad to know she is in a safe, loving home. We know that she is going to be happy and bring joy to her new family.

Welcome Home Hercules!


Thank you all for your support, prayers and generous donations for Hercules.

We are happy to report that he has received the "all clear" from Littleton Equine Medical Center (LEMC) and his injured hoof is healing well. 

He is so happy to be home and we are thrilled to have our big boy back. 

Hercules is enjoying all of the extra attention and we love doling it out.

We anticipate additional charges from LEMC and are still in need of donations to cover the expenses. If you would like to contribute to Hercules' veterinary fund, please visit our Facebook page to donate or contact the Foundation directly at 303-841-8338.

Again, our sincere thanks to everyone who has made Hercules recovery possible.

Little Nail , Big damage


This little nail cause Hercules to be in the hospital for 5 days. We would like to thank the veterinarians at Littleton  Equine Medical Center: Dr. Lynn Pezzanite, Dr. Jackie Hill, Dr. Julie McLaughlin, and Dr. Katy Nelligan. We also like to  thank Teri Allen from Terolyn Horse Rescue for helping bring Hercules home from the vet. And last we would like to thank everyone that donated.

Hercules Update

**** URGENT!!! *****
Hercules is currently at Littleton Equine Medical Center. He stepped on a nail sometime last night. A vet from Littleton came out to take X-rays, but it became apparent that he needed more involved testing. Unfortunately, the X-rays showed that the nail hit his coffin bone. He needs to receive high doses of IV antibiotics as well as a limb perfusion immediately to avoid any spread of infection. We are hoping that no joints are affected. The estimate for his care so far is $4000, in addition to the $600 emergency ranch call. As always, we appreciate your generosity and compassion. We can’t do this without you! To donate for Hercules, click the button on this post. Please keep our big, gentle giant in your thoughts and prayers.
