Last day of summer still is feeling quite like summer, as the weather forecast is calling for a couple days of high 80s and afternoon thunderstorms. As dry as it's been, if that's what it takes to get some rain our direction, that's probably ok.
Everyone at the farm is doing great. We've cleaned out the run in part of the barn and have begun to build a stall. I think as soon as we can get that up and look at purchasing some electric tape fencing, we'll be advertising for a couple pasture boarders. Thought long and hard about it and I know boarding can be iffy, but I think it will help in the long run. Pasture board only, no riding. My ideal would be to find a couple older retired horses. Guess we'll see what we come up with.
Couple of events coming up:
First, Kelly Day Race. Willow's idea. We're inviting the WILC (homeschool group) kids and their families over to the farm on Sunday, October 3rd for a trail race. 2 laps around the running trail (about 2.5 miles total) followed by snacks and just hanging out at the farm. If this goes well, it may be something we look at repeating in the future in a more formal way.
Second, the Halloween Party. Keep it in mind -- October 30th. Costumes encouraged but not mandatory. Not sure when we're "starting" yet but request to bring a snack/desert/drinks to share.
The Name the Tavern 50/50 Raffle is still going on! In fact, we had a name suggestion that we liked SO much that we're adding it to the mix -- "The Shindig". If you've already voted, your vote still counts although if you want to change it, let us know and we'll switch it. Voting open now through 10pm at the Halloween Party. Vote ANY time you wish... doesn't have to be at a party. Vote as often as you wish and for as many different names as you wish. Name that collects the most $$ will be the name of the Tavern. Each $1 you put into the voting gets you a chance in the 50/50 Raffle!
Hope to post more pictures of projects soon! Stay tuned! Fall is coming. :-)
