The Cavalry Arrives!

After several weeks of an information drought, we have a plethora of updates to post in the next few days!

Since our last update, one of the most productive mornings in the short history of Traveller's Rest occurred on August 8th. The Cavalry arrived in Spotsylvania Courthouse once again!

We were expecting a new horse to arrive, and the Fredericksburg United Methodist Church's Vacation Bible School (fourth and fifth grade class) took over the job of preparing the accomodations.

Among other things, the kids painted paddock fences,

assembled a storage shed for grooming kits, cleanup tools and first aid supplies,

and prepared a stall for the incoming horse, complete with extra deep bedding to make the underweight newcomer more comfortable,

(all under the close scrutiny of Supervisor Sonny.)

Thank you, FUMC VBS! You accomplished, in one morning, what would normally take 2 or 3 days. You're welcome any time!
