Open House 2008 - Come Visit!

Mark your calendars!

Mylestone's 9th Annual


12 - 4 p.m.
Rain Date October 19th

It's that time! And we hope to see you at our once-a-year very special event, where Mylestone opens the farm so you can come visit, meet the horses and learn what Mylestone is all about. This year, you'll meet some of our newest residents, Jiminy Cricket, Lena and Blaze, and see the wonderful improvements in Blue and Margrit, who simply is more confident and stunning as time goes by. Our volunteers will be on hand to help and inform you about any of our residents who, of course, will be freshly brushed to meet you! You'll also find information placed conveniently throughout the farm so you can learn about each horse as well as all of Mylestone's efforts.

What else will be at Open House? Our fabulous Silent Auction, which each year gives you the opportunity to treat yourself or shop early for the holidays - not just horse items, but food, bed and bath items, clothing, trips, B&B stays, and tickets to all kinds of events and so much more. And don't miss our bake sale - home baked wonders from talented bakers sell out quickly - so come early! And ... two special guests - local equine and animal artist Barbara Hornstra will have a selection of her artwork for sale with a percentage of proceeds benefiting Mylestone. Local Author Diana Tuorto will also be at Open House signing copies of her books and proceeds will benefit the horses.

Mylestone also has a lost treasures table, lots and lots of books, CD's and DVD's for sale at unbelievable prices PLUS an array of beautiful Mylestone merchandise including plush ponies that look just like some of the rescued horses. You've just gotta come!

This year Dan Campanelli has once again donated a signed, limited edition print of one of his masterpieces.

So mark your calendar - October 12th from 12 - 4 pm - and join the whole gang for this year's 9th Annual Open House! The horses are already getting excited to meet you. And our wonderful volunteers are busy working like elves to make sure you enjoy the best Open House ever. Please be sure to thank a volunteer at Open House - the miracles you see are all thanks to them.
