We've had a couple of chilly evenings and Nutmeg the bunny, along with her little friends Peppermint and Snickerdoodle, are busy grooming as their thick winter coats grow in and their summer fur sheds out. They enjoy snacking on the fallen leaves that drop into their runs, too.
Mostly, though, we've had beautiful autumn days and happily, they are bringing out new riders! Four students appeared for their first lessons this week, and we added a wonderful pair of sisters about a month ago, so Team Easy Keeper is growing. Since report cards came out recently, I suspect that good academic results are being rewarded with long-sought-after riding lessons. If that's the case, everybody: keep studying!
This Saturday, a couple of riders and horses are heading to a Halloween fun show and gymkhana, and next Saturday, the barnyard will be invaded by 8-10 five year olds for a birthday party. I love to see the schedule filling up!
