The Holidays at LoveWay

by Caitlyn Andrews December 23, 2015

Christmas at LoveWay in Middlebury

The holiday season is here! The horses at LoveWay are ready for their presents, but they could still use your help. Here's what's going on at LoveWay this holiday season.

Giving Wreath

 LoveWay Holiday Giving Wreath

The Giving Wreath at LoveWay in Middlebury, IN.

One of the first things you'll see when you step in the doors at LoveWay is a wreath covered in paper ornaments. The ornaments describe needs for LoveWay. Each one has a horse name, the gift, and a dollar amount. For example, one ornament has, "Horse Mani/Pedi, Copper, $32." If you wanted to give the gift of a well-deserved mani/pedi (hoof trim) for Copper this Christmas you would select the ornament and turn it in with either money or check to Molly in the office. Simple!

Gift Certificates
