Draggin' the Fields

 The other week we had some folks come through to plow the fields with the harrow, getting things in order and sprucing up our llamas' favorite sitting spots. Bucky sure was thankful to our incredible helpers for the work they did!

Some Help From the Rotary Club

 We would also like to thank our volunteers from Cherokee Trail Rotary Club for assisting us with our chores on the ranch. All of the volunteers were phenomenal and we hope to see you guys in the future.

Spring Hay Delivery

 Melissa, from Double Beam Hay Co. has brought us our spring load of hay. We want to say thank you to all of those who so generously donated to us so that we could afford to get our hay barn restocked. We are so happy that volunteer, Lei brought her two sons to help throw pallets as Melissa stacked hay in our barn. Thank you all so much.

A Farewell to Kelley


Polioencephalomalacia, or PEM, is a neurological disease common in goats, sheep, and other ruminants. The disease leads to cerebral disfunction and can produce symptoms such as blindness, incoordination, seizures, and many more. It is commonly linked to dietary changes or nutritional deficiencies, but can also be brought on by a number of other conditions - many of which are not well understood. 

The onset of PEM can be swift and unexpected, with severity often progressing over the course of two days - sometimes moving through all the stages within only a few hours. The primary treatment method involves the prompt administration of thiamine, or vitamin B, with recovery of the ability to stand taking up to 5 days and full recovery taking 2-3 weeks.

Unfortunately, symptoms can be difficult to detect, and their fast progression often means that detection is too late. Just this morning, we found one of our goats, Kelley, uncomfortable and in distress. By the time the veterinarian arrived to take a look at her, her symptoms had progressed beyond a recoverable point and she passed shortly. Our hearts go out to Kelley and all goats that experience PEM, and we will remember her fondly.

Generous donation from ENT

This morning the Edwards Foundation received a very generous check from the ENT Credit Union presented in person by the bank manager Christian and his assistant Jordan.

Not only did Christian and Jordan bring in a donation, they stayed and shoveled sh!t.


The Suri llama her name is Roo, came around to get a special treat from Christian.

These farm hands fit right in! They look like these famous farmers! 

All of our animals here at the Edwards Foundation appreciate their help and the donations a lot!

They were a great help and we look forward to working with them again in the future!

Duck Adoption

 A lovely lady by the name of Karen came by yesterday and adopted a duck to keep her drake company after its partner passed. 

Best wishes to the both of them as they adjust to this change and get settled in.

Volunteers from Ent

 Two wonderful ladies, Jordan and Marissa, got special time off from their company, Ent, to come volunteer with us and help do chores. It was a joy to have them, and we appreciate their and everyone else's help keeping the rescue running!

A Sunny Weekend

As the Sun comes back and warms up the snow, we had some similarly sunny volunteers come through this past weekend to help look after all the animals and walk the llamas!

A warm thank you to all of our volunteers who visited us this past weekend, and who visit us every day!

Buckley Space Force Volunteer Visit

Earlier this month we had a group of Airmen and Guardians from the Buckley Space Force Base come by to do some volunteer work. They were all lovely, hardworking individuals, and the animals liked them almost as much as we did!

Glad we had them come by to help, as the temperatures were in the single digits, and we wish them all the best in their continued service!

New Chicken!

Welcome our newest member, Blue. Right now he is introducing himself to the ducks and even the goats are giving him a warm welcome. We look forward to having this lovely, happy rooster.

Hercules's Vet Visit


Doctor Lemus from Littleton Equine Center and her assistant came out to check on the progress of Hercules's hurt eye and determined that he has lost site in that eye and he is not in pain. His treatment this time will be 30 days of daily ointment at which time the vet will come back and revaluate. We will keep you posted. Consider coming to visit him, he loves attention!
