We are getting several request for early February for our carriages to attend daddy daughter dances. Lets hope the weather is better this year than last years snow event in mid February. We had to replace over 400 foot of pipe.
We had a really great year. Thank you to all the folks that booked their special events with us. We are now closed for the rest of this year so we can be with our family too.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Last day of the year for a ride will be 12.23.21. Limited openings still.
Where are the Christmas season rides? Drop us your Christmas email wish and we may be able to send you neighborhood lights ride.
We wish to thank all the families that help make this country a safe place with the sacrifices of their loved ones. There is no greater love for our country
Spring is here! Fresh green nibblings for the boys to enjoy. Really nice cool early mornings to get that spring cleaning done and a garden started. In connection to both we have old compost that is free if you load your own but we have a tractor to help you for $10 by appointment only.
Happy Texas Independence Day. Hope everyone's just about to get all their pipes fixed. It was a bad one here but we managed. Even though we do not do standard downtown streets service anymore we are available for special events with a 2 hour minimum. Cost is flexible by where your vent is located. Give us a call and let us see if we can put a horse-drawn carriage in your special event.
We may be slow to our phone because of robocalls we just don't jump on it anymore. But if you will leave a message we will call you back. Thank you
We have cancelled all of our events for this Valentines weekend. The road conditions are too nasty and dangerous. Everyone just find a nice place to hunker down and cuddle up.
Happy New Year!
We will mostly be closed for winter unless you absolutely need a private hire for a special event. You need it? We got it!
We still have dates open Christmas week for private events that are following proper covid outdoor restrictions. You may call for information on getting a carriage for your private family event carriage service. We will be closed 12.24 and 12.25 and NYE so we can be at our own private family events.
Time to put pets and critters in a safe place during the fireworks. Most out door dogs will not make a mess when in side. Keep them safe.
Happy 4th of July. Go out and have a great celebration and remember why we celebrate our own personal independence. If you are being safe you are taking care of not just you but your family.
On this Memorial Day we stop to pause to reflect on what our freedom has cost. Thank you to the families that made our lives safe.
With summer heat coming on we go into late mode. We will not be providing services when the day heat is above 90. Special events will be planned to deal with late warm evenings and nights.
Happy Valentine's Day

If you are getting ahead prepping your garden because of the weather we have some real old compost from years past that we sell at $10 a pick up truck load. We will start on the big main barn next week if you want some compost that will be too hot for close spread but ok to mix with what you might have. If you want to load your own for free then bring your own tools.
Remember if your call is important and l was not able to pick up leave a message for a call back.
We are out doing barn & field work mostly on the tractor. We check the phone every few hours. We still get several robo sales and hang ups so we will not chase down missed calls. If your call is important and l was unable to pick up then leave a voice message for a call back. Thank you and thank this wonderful weather for the ability to get outdoor farm chores done.
HAPPY NEW YEAR! After the party is over please find a safe way home.
We wish you a Merry Christmas! And to my mom and dad l want to thank them very much for keeping that illusion of Santa for me. Tucking me in bed tonight with all the excitement of waking in the morning to a wonderful surprise. I had no idea because you never took me with you shopping for gifts or let me know when the postman delivered packages from Sears. These memories are still some of the best to recall even 60+ years later.
There is still some time left to book services before the new year. We are at Plowman's Kitchen in Taylor tonight. The service can come to your neighborhood a 6 passengers for carriages and 20 passengers on the trolley.
FREE carriage rides at Wolf Ranch in Georgetown 4pm to 7pm loading at kirklands homes store.

We will close during the bike rally. The cluster congestion is going to be so bad only the poor folks that have to work downtown will be stuck in all that tie up. Anyone else is just asking for a slow crawl no parking experience.
