      FARM TOUR: Lusitano Horses & Rescue Goats! Meet a beautiful Lusitano mare
      (the foundation breed for many of today’s horses – & the original cow
      horse!) and her goatherd. Goats can be a low-care, low cost alternative to
      having a second horse, which is exactly why this farm got the goats. In the
      process, the farm owner has fallen in love with their whimsical, charming
      ways. Join this tour to learn about goats as a companion for horses, as
      well as pasture management, wildlife enhancement, mud-free paddocks, an
      outdoor riding arena, and more! BONUS: Meet a representative from Puget
      Sound Goat Rescue, a goat rescue organization that adopts out tame goats and
      provides information on goat care.

      who is working to produce their own organic food in a sustainable fashion by
      utilizing their yard, garden, lawn and woods. Learn about sustainability
      and what that can mean to each of us in terms of reducing our impact on the
      land while saving money AND producing healthy food! This family raises
      goats for milk and cheese, chickens, ducks and geese for eggs and meat,
      vegetable gardens and fruit trees for produce, trees for firewood, bees for
      pollination and honey, and grass for livestock hay. Learn about ways to
      reduce chemical use, cost-savings on food production, low-tech gardening
      techniques such as chicken tractors, and how children can be an important
      part of the chore and animal-care routine. We promise… you will be surprised
      at the volume and value of healthy food produced on this amazing family

      FARM TOUR: The Kid-Friendly Horse Farm! Often times we teach kids about
      riding without teaching them about what comes along with that
      responsibility. Other times it’s a struggle on how to scale things down to
      a kid’s level or what horse-safe chores to include kids on. Join the KCD &
      HCW on this unique tour to explore how you can incorporate children into
      green horsekeeping on your farm.
