Surviving the wedding season

Well it has been a hectic summer!
With all the rain we had in July, we were very fortunate to have had perhaps one rained out wedding. The rain usually stopped by 4h00 and we were very prepared with other alternatives if not.

I am glad to say that this year I did not have any groomzilda's like last year. We often hear about bridezilla's which I have the priviledge of not taking on as clients...but groomzilla's well that was a first!

We have decided to retire the horses and we are not taking any reservations a year in advance for the horses and buggy. If next year they are in shape we may on occasion hitch them but they deserve some r&r. They will still be at the stables on the site of Auberge des Gallant so you can still visit with them and take pictures.

Lucky the goat passed away this summer at the ripe old age of 16. She was a happy goat and had a very good life chassing children and anyone who dared enter the stables. It was actually funny because you could go in but try and get out??? that was another matter! I could write a book about all her escapades. The funniest must be the time she entered the restaurant and ran under a customers table on a busy Saturday night! The staff and customers were in hysterics while my poor husband Gerry removed her by grabbing her by the tail and dragging her out of there in his business suit. We were so sure that we would be eating goat stew the next day!

We will miss her dearly.
