A Scarecrow, a giraffe and a Horse walk into a barn…….

unnamed-4 Yesterday was the big fundraising 5K for the Barn.  There was lots of prep work in the pasture Friday afternoon. You could do a paved route or a pasture route and run alongside the horses.  The weather was simply glorious both Friday and Saturday.  I was an easy scarecrow. A helper at the adaptive course for strollers and wheelchairs.  Fireman directed cars by standing and waving a flag in the right direction.  Good work for someone who should be healing but not just laying around.

There were many fun additions to the actual walk/run including a costume contest with the horses.  DSCF4417.jpg  Do I need to say this place is so wonderful it doesn’t feel like volunteer work until I get home and my back says it was a little bit of work!  Some of the herd is here in the photo below.  They were so beautiful watching the runners and running themselves at times.


There has been some log cabin knitting, but minimal. I should get a few more colors on today.

Hows your weekend going?

  1. You make the cutest little scarecrow!!!

    Is the white horse in the middle a Drum horse? Looks like the ones we rode in the bay last summer.


  2. Beautiful horses! It sounds like a great event. Wasn’t the weather amazing the last couple of days? (Not counting Sunday.)
    Hope Fireman is feeling better.


  3. Fun post! Sounds like you had a busy but fun day. I think Jill wishes she had a spot like that to volunteer; it reminds us of a place here called Little Bit.


  4. You are such a cute scarecrow! Gosh your eyes are blue, blue, blue. The picture of the horses is gorgeous. So glad you found such a wonderful place to volunteer.


  5. You look adorable in your scarecrow outfit.. and the horse photo also made me happy.. gorgeous steeds. I think you found the perfect place to volunteer. ((hugs)), Teresa 🙂


  6. That horse photo is just breathtaking. I literally went ahhhhh…..and I am terrified of horses. Your scarecrow makeup is spot on. It looks like a fun day. I do miss the dress up part of my old skating team but not the back breaking work setting up all that scenery.


  7. Thanks for sharing the pictures. I wonder if I can get an alpaca costume fundraiser started at the farm? 🙂 Not sure they’d enjoy costumes but you never know. Your costume is great!
