Spring Open House

Yesterday, amid the wind and occasional rain, several hundred people made their way to Flint Hill Farm for our annual Spring Open House.
The team was harnessed to the hay wagon for rides around the property; they love to work.  It makes them feel useful. No, REALLY!  You should see how proud they are!

We had absolutely amazing music by various artists associated with "Godfrey Daniels", a non-profit music venue from nearby Bethlehem, PA. They were wonderful. The Bluegrass jam made me feel like I had stepped back in time.

We had arts and crafts...

Sheep shearing (Did you ever see a sheep being sheared?  They act like they're getting a beauty treatment!  Nirvana! Then they don't recognize each other afterward. It's hilarious!)

And bottle-feeding.  Ms. Amy is an awesome goat  maaa-ma. And an awesome person-momma. Just ask her kids (pun intended!)
My neighbors even visited!  Great fun!
Who could beat a day framed by music,

horses, and friends?  The only thing that could make it better would be a little sunshine.  We'll ask for some of that for next Sunday...when we do it all again!  Come join us!  4/25/2010, from 10 AM - 4 PM.
