- Horse substitute – check √
Even though Puddles and camera dad did an amazing job shooting (yes, Puddles is un-edited… camera dad caught him in action!), I knew the full pattern release wouldn’t be until the end of the MKAL and it got me thinking. What if my beloved horse substitute was a REAL horse and the country scene a REAL country western scene?
Thanks to a lovely lady from my mom’s Bible study, those “what if’s” became “checks” in time for the full release of Country Western. Helen invited me and camera mom over to her 30 acre horse farm to shoot my design – wow!!! Thank you Helen!!!
Join me and my new friend, Macy, as we tour River Run Farm – the shoot location for Country Western! And if you’re about to get hitched and looking for the perfect setting to say “I do” – they convert their beautiful farm into a wedding venue!!
Handsome isn’t he! Macy has a great name story to go with his show stopping style. His owner’s husband said she could buy the horse she wanted so long as she cut up her Macy’s card. So the Macy plastic card got replaced with Macy, in horse flesh! Macy is a character and loved all the attention… just like a certain Great Dane we all know!
LOL – Whenever I turned to face the camera a little too long he’d remind me he was in the picture too with a wee nibble on my arm. As soon as I turned back he went to showing off for the camera, keeping his head high and proud!
The farm has several paddocks with lots of gorgeous horses, an amazing barn for weddings, all edged by the Watauga River! But I admit it, Macy devoured all my attention and I completely forgot to take photos of the rest of the property.
Thanks so much, Helen & Bob… and Macy too ?.
Find River Run Farm at 2130 Broadstone Rd, Banner Elk, NC 28604 in the heart of Valle Crucis. Wait what – Banner Elk, I thought you said Valle Crucis? Odd I know, but when your physically located in a historic town and the town runs out of mail box space, your address gets kicked to the larger post office the next town over – definitely fits the country western theme, dontcha think!
