Wow! After all of the heat the week before, we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day for an Open House on August 1. There was a cool breeze blowing and the temperature was just right for being outside.
Faces were painted, bunnies were well petted, the alpacas were hand fed, rows of veggies were identified and there was plenty of food for everyone. A few veggies were sold. Door prizes were won. Sandy and Dirk won the $20 Starbuck's card and Brad Z won the hat.
The horse and wagon rides by Richard, Vanessa, Wendy and Toni (of Ferrytails, specialty pet treats) were just the right length to leave us wanting more. They did a great job and the Shire draft horses were well-behaved. It was obvious that the horses are well loved and cared for. Our "teamsters" also brought along a mare and her three month old foal. The foal is as tall as it's mother's shoulders ... and they do grow up fast!
A great day to be alive!
If you and your family attended our open house, thank you so much for your support. We appreciate you taking the time out of your busy schedule to come to our farm. It was good to see you and visit with you. We enjoyed your company and hope that you will come back again next year. If you didn't make it, we hope that you can drop by next year ... take care and have a wonderful day!
