Did you know that it costs over $10,000 per year to feed our horses? Our animal program is one of the things that makes Four Mile such a unique experience for visitors. It's also an educational highlight for the thousands of school children we host each year for field trips. Today is Colorado Gives Day, and our goal is to reach $10,000. With your help, we know we can get there! Remember, your gift goes further today because of the $1 million Incentive Fund offered by Community First Foundation and FirstBank, which proportionally increases the value of each contribution made. Thank you for your continued support of the work that we do!
