Annual Picnic at Ellis Park
Saturday July 19th from 1:00pm til 8:00pm
RSVP to Tricia or Faith (see above for contact info)
We need to know how much hamburger & Cilli to purchase and what everyone is bringing so we won’t have lots of duplicates. I will keep you posted on the events page of the web site.
The ponies are still out working!
After driving a single and pair of Percherons for 20 plus years, I am now trying to drive a 13hand pony. You might think this would be easy but not so.
Before driving this pony I would not think twice about hitching up any time or place as I knew my percherons and would not have to worry about any suprises. . ( I am going to blame it on age) Now I am not so confident.
What I am trying to say is that we become complacent and forget about the other drivers around us. Now I have to worry about who is where and what they are doing. I went out by myself yesterday for the first time and things went very well. I hope to drive her as much as I drove the big girls in the future. I still really miss driving my big girls and single driving is no where near as fun as double but the one very big plus is the size and weight of harness and cart
.So nice to be able to move everything yourself.
Will keep you posted. Hope to see everybody soon. Faith

Marilyn also won another first for her Welcome Witch and a second for a strawberry pitcher. I won a first for a dragonfly vase and 6 seconds for other pieces, I entered. This is why I could not attend the breakfast drive!
