It’s not quite calendar summer, but it feels like summer, doesn’t it? Morgan is near Orlando right now, visiting my Florida cousins. She made her first-ever catch and was excited. (I think this is a cell phone picture, thus the quality.) Meanwhile, I’m back here getting ready for the party on Saturday. Are you coming? I’m expecting over 100. If you want to come, it’s not too late to sign up and let me know (so I’m sure to have enough food!) and it’s also not too late if you’re not coming to send in a donation to the HOP benefit at the party and enter for a chance to win the custom pet portrait by Kelly Walker. Get all the details in this post! Also, everyone who donates at least $25 to the Heart of Phoenix will receive a print from a painting of my horses by Kelly Walker–prints will be at the party for you to take home if you’re here. Prints will be mailed if you’re not here. (Donation to HOP is not required to attend the party.)
Kelly will be painting in the studio during the party, and Tinia Creamer from the Heart of Phoenix Equine Rescue will be giving horsemanship demonstrations in the barnyard with Patriot and Zip. The house, barn, cellar, studio, and grounds will all be open for touring and poking your heads in every room. (Ack, I better clean up!) The “petting zoo” will be open–bring some cookies for Clover! I’ll be having a cookout, so bring your appetites, too. Sign up for the party here.
