Filming a Documentary

One of our favorite things about our business is sharing our draft horses with the rest of the world. Today we were given the opportunity to do this by way of film in a documentary that will hopefully appear on PBS about the horse and our relationship with him throughout history. We played our part both by working a team (Duke & Diesel) in the woods logging, and putting them to one of our vis-a-vis carriages for a ride to the vineyard. We are not certain at this point when it will air, but we may be filming more farm related imagery in the future. We will keep you posted.

After returning tonight, we had quite a crowd waiting for us - John & Melissa Lavoie with a Mammoth Jack going to PA in the morning, and Posie and Earl Clements to pick up their peacocks. We, of course, got our new peacocks, too. I hope to get pictures of these sweet little babies in the next couple of days and will post them at that time. Meanwhile, enjoy the pictures from today.
