Photo & Video Art Works

The annual Open House for The 2nd Co. Governor's Horse Guard was held under beautiful blue skies, and to temperatures in the 70's. There was something for everyone with several equine demonstrations, many vendors offering a diverse array of products for sale,  pony rides for the kids with a bounce house and games to play. To everyone's delight a baby deer ran through the middle of the event  and kept going until it was out of sight.
