Welcome to the world, little Clover. She was born on St. Patrick’s Day evening! We were present for almost the entire labor and birth. What a miraculous experience. As our third foal, this is the first time we have witnessed the birth. We were able to imprint this new life in that precious window of time when she will associate us as her family. We had our hands on her at her first breath, helped her get her spindly legs under her and find her mama’s milk. Flaca (Carolina Moon x DP) and Clover (sired by Lowther’s Lucero) are bonded, healthy and happy! This is the first foal to be born at our new location at Selmont Hall.
We are so fortunate to be featured in this news story which aired on February 13, 2018! Sincere thanks to WTOC, David Klugh and the crew who spent an entire day with us and worked behind the scenes to bring this story to our community!
We are excited to celebrate our grand re-opening at our new location over Memorial Day Weekend coming soon. We will by no means be through with our capital improvements to our new property but we have things to a point where we will be open with regular hours, retail and program offerings for the summer season. Details with our plans for the weekend will be announced soon but will include snacks, sweets, drinks, membership and retail offerings, pony rides, games and (hopefully) wagonette rides. Discounts and freebies for our active military, veterans and first responders and their families. Thank you for your service! Please stop by at least to meet Clover, our new baby filly Marsh Tacky.
Show your Daufuskie and Marsh Tacky pride by picking up some of our new merchandise. We have embroidered, soft washed, snap back trucker hats, drink ware, iron on patches, stickers and more. New shirts and saddle pads are coming soon. Proceeds from your retail purchase go to benefit our hurricane fund. Come by the she-shed at our new location 281 Old Haig Point Rd during business hours or visit our online store anytime!
Farewell to our very first foal, Estelita and Southern Legend as they embark upon a new chapter in their journeys today. They are leaving the island to their new forever homes so we are feeling proud and hopeful for them. Estelita will be living near Clemson, SC and Southern Legend will be living in middle GA. Thanks Hawkins Heritage Farm for your help with hauling and match making. We are looking forward to following these two as they grow with their new owners.
Welcome to the family, Sydney Bunny Valentine. This sweet pup was a rescue from Bluffton and came into our world when we were least expecting it. We have no idea what her parents are but we are thinking Aussie – Catahoula mix. She is the best buddy, super smart and loves the barn life. She definitely hit the puppy jackpot!
We would like to thank everyone for their support, comments, concerns and inquiries since we have moved from our original location at Freeport to our new location at Selmont Hall. Because we are basically ‘glamping’ and totally under construction right now, we are closed for trail rides, pony rides, lessons and tours etc. until further notice. We hope to be to a point by spring to re-open, but we are in the “Slowcountry.” Multiply that by the bridgeless island factor and we will realistically be open this summer after all. If you might like to contribute to our construction efforts with in-kind donations of construction materials or equipment rental, please contact us directly!
We had no reservations kissing 2020 goodbye and saying hello with open arms to the new year, our new location and our new adventures. Wishing everyone else a Happy New Year in 2021!
We are beyond thrilled to announce that we just closed on 7 acres next to the 2 acres with the Simmons House on Old Haig Point Rd. Finally, we have a permanent home for our organization and our horses. The 9 acre property will collectively be named “Selmont Hall” thanks to major contributions by the Selmont Family. We also must thank Wick Scurry and Team Freeport for everything over the last 5 years. We began a 5 year agricultural land lease agreement with Mr. Scurry in 2015 and could not have gotten on the map or where we are today without his generosity.
We were invited as guests to attend a quail hunt on horseback at Laurel Springs Plantation near our 40 acre conservation easement property in Dale, SC. It was the first time in a long time where we just showed up and our horses were tacked up for us. It was a gorgeous day and we had plenty of action. Thank you to the landowners for your hospitality, we enjoyed absolutely everything. Thanks to Roger Pinckney for the loaned 12 gauge!
A majority of the repairs to the Simmons House has been made and the house is starting to shine. We did everything we could to preserve the home’s hip roof pitch, floor plan, paint colors and character. We still have a ways to go but we are over the hill. We look forward to celebrating with everyone and hosting a house warming party soon.
