Getting married? Want to host a farm dinner? Having a reunion? We offer our farm as a great rustic venue. Our prices will vary according to your wants and needs, and we can even do the catering. Contact us to arrange for you to visit and check us out! Grayce Wynds might just be your perfect setting! NOTE: We hosted a rehearsal dinner, and the bride and groom wanted a carriage ride around the farm. This can be booked, also.
5. Horse Boarding
We are not a full-service barn with arenas and riding instruction, but we do accept a limited number of boarders for pasture board. We charge $350.00 per month which includes 24-hr hay and/or grass, fresh water, and shelter. It also includes a feed-through supplement to control flies. We do not stall horses, but we have a barn if stall rest is warranted. Horses come here on a trial basis to make sure pasture mates get along well. We would not put horses together who cannot get along. Contact us for more information. Your horse would be loved!
6. Wild Horse Tours to Rachel Carson Reserve, Beaufort, NC
With our knowledge of the coastal wild horses, we take scheduled groups up to Beaufort for a guided wild horse tour. We can help people find them although sometimes it can be challenging. We charge $75.00 per person for the all-day excursion. This includes the 2.5 hour drive up and back, the water taxi over to the Reserve, about 2 hours of hiking and photographing, lunch on Front Street (on your own). Contact us for more information. Have you ever gone in search of wild horses??
7. Fall Festival open to the public ("Ponies and Pumpkins")
Every Friday in October, we open the farm for visitors. We offer a hayride at 4:00, 4:30, 5:00, and 5:00 to the pumpkin patch to get a pumpkin. Then, we paint them in the Village, pet the friendly Graysons, and watch an outdoor movie about 6:00. This year we are showing "The Black Stallion," a true classic! Cost is $10 for an adult and $7.00 for a child (under 12). Children under 3 are free! How about a night out?
8. Speaking Engagement
Sue Immen, retired public educator, speaks to groups about the wild ponies and horses in the Eastern United States. She has presented at museums, 4H gatherings, and public libraries. She has even taken Asher to help her. Ms. Immen has studied the horses in depth, and she and her husband produced the DVD "In Search of the Wild Horses of the East Coast: Learn About the Herds and How to Find Them." She has also authored the Sunny and Jess story book series for children. Sunny and Jess are Chincotague ponies and were purchased by the Immens in 2014. Contact her for more information.
