Spend your "Day On" with the Horses

President Elect Obama is calling on Americans to make MLK Day a day of service....a "Day On" rather than a day off. While many service projects are geared toward needy humans, we'd like to appeal to potential volunteers for a few hours to help needy horses. With the recent unusually cold, windy weather, the horses have been spending more time in sheds and barns. That, added to poop piles frozen to the ground has caused a "back-up," so to speak. By Monday, everything should be thawed (including our spreader, and the muckers' fingers and toes!) and we'll have some extra cleaning up to do.

If you have not yet chosen a "Day On" project, and would like to spend a few hours with our Elders, volunteering in a reduced stress environment, please give us a call at 540-972-0936, or shoot an email to
