Map and Times
Orchard Season Returns August 20th !
The apples are ripening early in the warm weather. While rain kept bees without umbrellas from pollinating early apples, they made up for it with the Northern Spies and Spigolds and a sprinkling of other varieties for the stouthearted to seek and find.
Eight ponies are looking forward to seeing friends old and new. Whinny the Pooh is especially eager, knowing his friends bring him BIG CARROTS ! YAY ! which he will gladly gobble...being careful to nibble one end while his friend holds the other.
There is a new little one-eyed pony, Dancer, (not to be confused with Dasher, Prancer, Vixon, Comet, Cupid, Donner, and Blitzen.) She is very shy. But carrots tossed in her general direction may be accepted. And of course there are the older ponies who, for lack of teeth, may prefer the smaller ends of the carrots, like Doris ~90 and Minnie Pearl who is ~100 in people years !
We and the ponies look forward to seeing everyone out in the fresh air and sunshine.
Dancer, from the Kentucky Equine Adoption Center (now we have two one eyed
ponies), is already becoming braver and at home. She and her friends look
forward to gentle people bringing carrots, making ponies feel loved. For this we
and the ponies are always grateful.
First time visitors must be sure to bring the map, and look at the virtual tour of Apple Hill Road to be in good spirits when you arrive. (Even many a GPS cannot find us.)
From Louisville, Kentucky, take the Gene Snyder Freeway to Old Henry Road (Exit 29). Go east 2 miles. (Old Henry curves left, then jogs right.) Turn right on Apple Hill Road (click for a tour) for 0.7 mile. Where Apple Hill forks, take the middle fork. When you see a red pole gate, open it up and come on back. Continue along the black rail fences. When you think you are lost, you are almost there. When you see the green umbrella, you have arrived.
If you feel lost, call 502-767-5245, leaving neighbors to rest in peace.
