Holy smokes! We have FOUR, count 'em, FOUR events to look forward to over the coming weekend.
Two are biggies -- the New York Farm Show and the Horse World Expo. I'll be heading to Harrisburg for a bit of the Expo. These are followed by a couple of educational programs in the northern part of our area.
Also, be watching the BIG Calendar for some new shows. I'll be updating it at some point soon.
Have a great weekend with your ponies!
