Veggie Expo come meet us!!

http://www.nyvegetarianexpo.org/

Veggie Expo was a success. Thanks to this expo we were able to raise money to save a horse from slaughter. This is our goal for this fundraiser. LAst year we were able to save a horse named "GIMME THAT WINE" This horse's photo was displayed at the expo. The horse that will be saved from this years efforts will be displayed on future fundraising outings and at the next veggie expo. We were able to meet many people and make some good contacts. But this was a very very long day. Shannon


Come meet us at the EXPO. On Saturday September 13. Shannon and several barn helpers (and weather permitting some of the residents of the farm) will be exhibitors at the New York Vegetarian Expo in Saratoga Springs, NY. This is the second year they are participating. They use the day to inform EXPO attendees about the farm, and As a day of fundraising. If you go tell them you saw this brand new posting. Shannon will be overjoyed to hear people have heard about the farm and the expo by way of our blogging. I will be there in spirit.(take note of the sweatshirts the girls will be wearing) While I take no credit for the shirts in any way... I did however take some of the photos that are on the shirts!! Again my way of participating from 350 miles away. Take some time to look at the Veggie Expo website!!!

Post One

Ok so I am not really Shannon.... But since I live so far away from her now I can not help with day to day operations of the farm or the horses. So for the last 4 years I have been the photographer, and the poster of photos on the petfinder website. Now I have become addicted to blogging and I can help the stable in another new way. Once I get this up and running I will add pictures and links to other great stuff. And can keep the world updated as to what Shannon and Aaron are up to on their farm.
