Ropin' Day!

We're all set to Rock n' Roll for our Ropin' Day Saturday, March 6th from 10:30am-1:00pm. No experience necessary, there will be no riding involved. Participants need to be prepared to wear old clothes and get dirty! Leather riding gloves or cotton glove/glove-liners will be best for avoiding blisters. We've got plenty of ropes for everyone to get some instruction and hands-on practice. Once we've mastered roping stationary objects, we can move on to moving objects and then try our skills at roping calves out of chute from on (pretend) horseback!
There is an observation deck for observers (please bring your own chairs). The farm is located at 8386 Observatory Drive, Granton. Also at the farm are some baby sheep, donkeys and a bunch of horses including J-lo's baby "Shorty"!!
Bring your friends and family, please confirm with us if you plan to attend. See you there!

What's with all the white stuff??!!?

A friend of mine has a farm in Virginia, where they have seen record snowfall this past week. Here are some of the pictures she took of her horses when they were first turned out in the snow!
