On Christmas Day around 2:00 pm Rusty, Catherine and I feed the horse treats, like apples, carrots and home made cookies! You are welcome to join us (call to get exact time) in giving the horses their Christmas treats. Yes, the chickens get treats, too. I always make them their favorite food, spaghetti. I think it reminds them of worms!

For Christmas 2013 the horses at The Riding Academy received carrots (25lbs), apples (9lbs) and Oatmeal Cookies (3lbs).
