Miniature Horses in Brenham

I've heard for years about the mini horses in Brenham but when we called last time, they were closing for good.

Imagine my surprise when I found the same place mentioned in a 2012 brochure. Upon calling, we learned the place used to be run by the Poor Clares Nuns but now is run by the PaxChristi Sisters.

Little K loved seeing & petting all the miniature horses & we enjoyed selecting a ceramic/plaster horse to paint on site. (there are all sorts if figurines from pets to vases, guitars & even holiday decorations.) I liked the small chapel on the premises too.

After our visit, I wish we had packed a picnic lunch as there are a few picnic areas available. The Sisters are working hard to raise money to renovate the premises & I have to say, it needs the updates. Still, I'm so glad we went today & look forward to returning. The Sisters' peaceful, helpful nature was reassuring. With only 3 of them on site, they have their work cut out for them. Add this to my list of places I'd like to donate to if/when I win the lottery. :-)

Until the next nap time...
