Join us on Saturday, September 24th from 6-10 pm for a benefit PotLuck for Angus in our Indoor Arena. This will be lots of fun with live music from King Street Bluegrass (Art and Nancy Lisi), balloon art from Julia Oughton, and a farriers-in-kilts beauty contest. Rumor has it that the Queen of England will be there (we're not sure how Scottish Angus feels about that). Cost is $50/person (cash or a check made out to Angus Whyte) plus bring a dish to share. Bring extra cash for the Balloon Hats and Farrier Beauty Contest!
The Trail Ride
Come back to Dodon on Sunday morning, September 25th (don't worry, we'll let you sleep off the party - the trail rides will head out at 10:00 am) and don't forget your horse! We'll have two groups for a guided trail ride - Fast and Slow. The Slow group will take a nice easy walk through the woods and the Vineyard. If you're feeling adventurous, the Fast group will include some cross country schooling. The cost is $50/horse - cash or a check made out to Angus Whyte. All riders must have a signed Release Form to participate. Print it out here or get one at the ride. RELEASE FORM PDF
Lessons and Services
Inspired by the generous farriers who have been filling in for Angus since he had his stroke (and had us PAY ANGUS instead of themselves), Steuart and Michelle decided to offer 5 "Angus Lessons" each - where the buyers pay Angus for the lesson. We figured this was something that other local service providers might be willing to do themselves and we weren't disappointed. We got a lot of responses from Angus clients - as well as from some folks who aren't his clients but want to offer their support! Below is a list of each of the services that has been donated. NOTE: This is not an auction! You pay the full price for the service and then will be contacted by Erin with instructions on how to redeem it.
