No Show Results This Week

Good afternoon!

How was your Turkey Day?  Here at Rolling Acres, a good Thanksgiving is when no horses get sick or hurt…and we had a good one!  All the horses behaved and we are thankful for that! We hope that you were able to enjoy Thanksgiving with your friends and family.

Last Wednesday, Goshen Hounds used Rolling Acres as the starting point for their hunt.  It was a picture-perfect day with moderate temperatures and no wind. It was neat getting to watch them leave from the farm and we were thankful to have them. Special thanks to Holly Bossert for letting us share these great photos!

The crew heads south very shortly, so be sure to stay tuned for those results once they happen!

Happy Thanksgiving From Rolling Acres!

We wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! The barn will be closed Thursday so that our staff can enjoy the day with their families.  And we hope all of our boarders, their families and friends enjoy the holiday as well!

PS- In case you missed it, here is a photo that Pam took this past weekend as the sun was coming up. It was very cold and windy but the stillness and beauty of this photo made us want to share!
