It's hard for me to believe that our local kids have already been back in school for three weeks - somehow that just seems waaaay too early! But it's a reminder that fall is coming. And I'm pleased to announce that EKF will be providing Pony Rides at the Louisa County Parks and Recreation Fall Harvest Festival, at Walton's Park in Mineral, on October 2. That might sound like a long way off, but it's actually just five weeks from tomorrow. The Mineral Farmers' Market is moving to Walton's Park for that day too, so it will be a genuine celebration of the harvest. I'm planning to bring Misty and Krispy Kreme, perhaps with manes braided and saddle pads decorated in autumn colors. Nutmeg the friendly bunny might even make an appearance, if I can create a pen that lets little folks pat her easily, but doesn't let her escape - hmmm. Our older riders will help out with pony handling and crowd control!
