The annual Ryerss Farm Open House was held on Sunday, December 4, 2016 and a large crowd of visitors came to visit the horses, shop in the Gift Shop, and climb aboard the hay wagon for a ride around the farm. The weather was cool and crisp—a perfect day to see the horses and enjoy refreshments of hot chocolate and holiday cookies, served to all by the volunteers. Many people participated in our “Give a Gift to your Favorite Horse” project by donating towards needed items on the Ryerss Wish List. Santa Claus was also present, and lots of children had their picture taken with him in the festively decorated barn. The day was topped off by the entrance of two beautiful rescued goats who wanted their picture taken with Santa!
