Everyone is welcome to attend the Foothills Miniature Horse Club (FMHC) Fun Day, 10:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. this coming Saturday, March 2 at Connie and Jeff Brown’s Green Creek Miniature Horse Farm  (just down Rte. 9 from The Green Creek Fire Department.)

An “unofficial” fun day, (officially “snowed out” Feb. 16) did happen for any who dared the elements, including Carolina Carriage Club’s (CCC) President, Price Story, and Halley, the 16-year-old Swedish Gotland mare, who recently came to live at Storybook Farm in Mills River, N.C.  They came to practice for their first competition together: the 2013 Salute to Driving in Aiken, S.C. March 1-3.

Connie Brown said she felt sorry for Jeff Brown roasting hot dogs with only his truck for company when he started cooking on “Snow Day.”

“Quite a few came to check out the facility (without horses) in spite of the snow,” she said. “They’re coming and bringing friends with horses and not just the miniature horses.

“In addition to in-hand obstacles that include jumps, as well as the driving events, we’ll have a silent auction, lots of information about CCC, FMHC and other activities, including the Paul Nordan’s CCC Beginner Driving Clinic scheduled in March.”
