Happy (almost) spring!
After a long winter, Hoofbeats staff and volunteers are busy preparing for Spring Lessons, scheduled to begin April 1. The barn is full again. The horses finally came back last week and Saturday the 14th was the first day of schooling them. It rained most of the day, churning the ring into a lovely milkshake consistency, but mud did not deter us!
Henry, Harry, Blueberry, Spirit, Hermes, and Commander are back, along with two new horses: Lillie and Grayson. Lillie is a lovely gray Arabian, rescued by Maria and here at Hoofbeats for her 90 day trial as a therapy horse. She is a sweetheart, and we really hope that therapy is the right job fit for her! Grayson grew up with Commander. We call them brothers. He is a talented 23 year old and knows a lot of fun tricks! If you call, “Grayson!” and hold up your hands like you’re taking a picture, he will “pose” and “smile” for you.
The horses, volunteers, and staff at Hoofbeats are excited about the upcoming spring session. Hopefully see you soon!
