Far View Horse Rescue Fundraiser Event Date Set
Spring brings a few new chicks to the Horse Rescue Ranch. Last year the Far View Horse Rescue added some chickens and ducks to the Rescue. They are a good source for fresh eggs as well as teaching kids about these animals. The Rescue has 2 new chicks that will be added once they have a chance to get a little bigger. Watch for the new little chicks in early June.
Join other volunteers at the Far View Horse Rescue on Saturday, April 25th to help clean up after the winter season. No experience is needed. Please bring gloves and dress in layers. Volunteers will be treated to a BBQ for a late lunch. Hours are from 9:00 - 3:00 p.m. but attend for any or all the time.
Get involved in the Far View Horse Rescue, volunteers are always needed. No horse experience is needed! Depending on how much time and commitment you want to contribute, we can use your help. There is always work to be done at the ranch in Fairplay including feeding the horses, cleaning stalls, fixing fences and helping to train and work with these rescue horses. Horse sponsorships and leasing is another option and a great way to really focus on one rescue horse. Volunteers are needed for our many fundraising projects done throughout the year. Call Kimberly Kissmann at 970-376-2103 to find out more volunteer options or come to the Far View Horse Rescue Open Volunteer Days on Fridays and Saturdays from 9:30 - 1:30 p.m. at the Fairplay Ranch.

The little celebrity foal born at the Far View Horse Rescue on May 20th now has a name, Xaria Rose. Lee Chandler and family are sponsoring the foal and as such received the honor of naming her. They were challenged, since the next name needed to start with an "X". Putting their creative thinking caps on they came up with the appropriate name Xaria Rose which means Gift of Love.
Xaria Rose continues to grow and trive at the Far View Horse Rescue. She loves to wag her tale and kick up her heels. She is truly a gift of love at the Rescue!
