Early spring?

It feels like spring has sprung here at Hoofbeat! The sun is shining, birds are singing, the horses are sun bathing, and it almost looks like the grass is growing! Whew! It's hard to believe that it's still February.
The horses must be getting itchy from their winter coats - many of them are shedding and rolling in the mud. Some of them look like swamp creatures right now! They don't seem to mind a bit though. When they get groomed, they go right back out and roll in the mud again.
We're still waiting on our mini mares to have their foals. The two of them are looking pretty wide right now. Hopefully we'll have a couple of foals running around soon.
We are gearing up for our spring groups - we just had Boy Scout group from Illinois come up for the weekend. Their troop has been coming to Hoofbeat for the last 25 years!
We also have a UW group coming out soon to do some planning sessions  and then we will start our spring Girl Scout programs. Never a dull moment here!
We still have space in the Horse Lover's Day on March 25th, so check out our website for more info.

Take care and we hope to see you at camp again soon!
