Our annual Open House took place Sunday, October 7th. We didn’t have ideal weather as it was a bit toasty at 82 degrees and humid, but we still managed to have a successful Open House. The horses were not as attentive as in past years because of the heat. Many have their winter coats coming in and preferred to stay in their sheds. The horses in the barn where friendly and greeter our over 450 visitors.
The farm looked beautiful thanks to all the hard work from volunteers and students and faculty visiting from Centenary University days earlier. We had assorted vendors, a big bake sale, Mylestone merchandise, and an amazing silent auction featuring over 140 items available for bid!
Dr. Mary Beth and volunteer, Dawn, greeted our guests as they came into the farm and Open House.
With so much to look at and bid on, our silent auction tent was always filled with visitors!
We also had our 2019 Mylestone calendar for sale. It is not too late to get your copy. Learn more here.
Kids just love meeting the horses. And most of our horses just love meeting kids!!
Special thanks to everyone that made Open House possible from all those that donated to the silent auction, baked goodies, helped put tents up, helped with setting up and taking down ... we couldn’t have done it without your help. While we may not have raised as much as we have in past years, Open House was still a wonderful day for the horses and for everyone who participated in the day in any way.
Just a few of the items waiting for bids in our silent auction.
People were sure to stop by and browse our Lost Treasures tables and Austin's sale.
