Carrots make friends

Healing Hearts & Hooves had their first Kids Camp Sunday, Aug. 13 at August Moon Farm. Instructor Renee Herndon Audisio wanted to thank all the volunteers that showed up to make it fun for the children and to Grocery Outlet for donating the snacks, waters, and lunches. Josie (19-year-old paint mare owned by Melissa Manhart) being handled by Catherine Vawter (right) was being fed a carrot by Kylie Dougherty while Davin Webb observes. Twelve students between 4 and 12 participated in face painting, horseshoe art, pony rides and grooming/safety for horses. Audisio hopes to have a few kids camp days next summer.
