We've Been Busy!

Hey Everyone,

Sorry for neglecting the blog recently, we have just been so busy around the farm! For those who were wondering, the Christmas party was a huge success, we raised around $10,000!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you to all who donated items, time, and money to the big event. We couldn't have done it without all of the support. By the time that the party rolled around, not an inch was available for displaying more items- we even had to stack some items! The music, food, and friends were great, an
d it never ceases to amaze us what can be done if we all get together to help the horses (especially the babies!). Jenny put a video/slide show together for us with pictures from the party. Here is the link to see the video... click on it and it will pop right up! Christmas Party Video!!!

Now that the party is done with, and we raised enough money to jump start foal season! Several big donors definitely made this possible, but EVERY SINGLE DONATION made a difference. Now we are focusing on getting the barn ready for the babies. They could be knocking down our doors as soon as January 1st, and preparation time is wearing thin! We have several new horses in, go to our website and click on the "Available Horses" page to check them out! We also have three others horses besides the one listed, but we are waiting until we can ride them and get a feel for what they are really like! Two of them are older TBs (a mar and a gelding), and the last one is a KA-YOOT Morgan/Quarter Horse that is just a DOLL! These horses will be available for adoption as soon as they are up to date on their feet, weight, and worming. Keep checking the website for more information. Also, most (if not all) of the horses on the website have been updated... lower adoption fees, new pictures, etc, etc. Check it out, and spread the word!

Here is just a goofy picture of Rex... our staff member of the day!!! Rex is such a big part of the farm, we don't give him enough credit for ALL if the work that he does (*wink*wink*)! We love Rexie!
Happy Trails!

i'm sorry we didnt make it to the party, but thank you so much for sending the blanket with Mary for Kessler, who we now know as Noble. He greatly appreciated it, the blanket he had before was too small, but this one fits him well. i have pictures of him i need to send with mary next time she comes to see you guys of him rolling around in the snow. thank you so much, Katie

The emails I've sent keep coming back. Wanted to make sure you received our check. We probably will not be able to get a load this year unless we have enough interest down South for adoptions so send any names our way. God bless and wishing you all a Happy New Year!
