We have out of town guests coming for the weekend so I’ve been trying to think of things to do while they are here
- learn how to milk a goat, make goat cheese and then use the left over whey to make lemon meringue pie
- make- and eat- homemade icecream. Maybe peach flavored?
- eat cake
- do a wine tasting at Equus Run ($7 pp or free with club member) followed by lunch or dinner in either Midway or Versailles
- spend the day at Shaker Village and then have dinner at their Inn or sip cocktails and listen to live music on the lawn ($15pp for admittance, lunch ~ $13 entree, dinner ~$20 entree)
- Visit the Kentucky Horse Park and Museum ($16pp)
- Go on a horse farm tour ($34 pp)
- lunch at The Glitz ($20pp)
- hard cider and beer at Country Boy Brewing
- take in an evening of theater with Lexington’s community StudioPlayers
- tour the Old Friends Thoroughbred Retirement Home ($10pp)
- luncheon or high tea at the Greentee Tea Room
Alternately we could
- weed the garden
- mulch the flower beds
- make the new raised flower beds
- fix the holes the goats keep making in the fences
- give the lambs their vaccination boosters
- trim the sheep and goats’ hooves
Any other ideas for a summer weekend near Lexington, KY?

You forgot to say snuggle a lamb or goat or two …. LOL and don’t forget Pet a pig or gather eggs Enjoy your company!!
ops……just found out this is the week I am coming down. Was going to vote on the second list but now I vote more to the first list. I WILL NOT spend $34 to see a horse farm since I have one in my own backyard. Like the sound of a few places but just staying at the farm sounds great (hopefully several bottles of wine will be there).
See ya after dinner Thursday.
oh, do I need to bring hay rope to patch the fences. We always used that to keep the horses in at Smith barn.
