There's a Horse in the Library

…a miniature horse, that is. Do you know that miniature horses were owned as pets by the royal families of Europe in the 1600s? Or that miniature horses were first brought to the U.S. to work in coal mines in the 19th century and were working in some Appalachian coal mines as late as 1950? Meet Rivieria, one of the miniature horses from Hidden Dale Farm in Jackson County, and her owner, Adawn Caswell, to learn more about this special breed. For all ages.
Saturday, Oct. 6, 11 a.m.
