I LOVE Arrowhead Stables. My granddaughter and I go as much as possible. She loves everything there, especially Carol, the owner. Always so sweet and helpful. This was the first year for the pumpkin patch, and man, it was such a hit. The local schools came with their children and had such a great time. First they picked out a pumpkin from the hay pile, then took it to a painting table where they were allowed to paint it any way they wanted, there were paints in bowls with brushes and also markers. Then they went to Panning for Gems. They were given a sack of sand and a sifter and sifted the sand in the water, just like when the old timers sifted for gold. Carol actually had real gemstones in each sack and when the kids found them they were given a little zip bag to put them in and keep. Then they were treated to a Barrel Train Ride through the woods where they saw an old western town, animals, and bandits. This was probably the favorite of all. Also, they were given a little cup of feed and could walk through the petting zoo and feed the animals through the fence. They were actually allowed to get into the pen with the ducks, chickens, a pig, and a rabbit. It was hands on and the kids loved it. After all that, there is a sizeable playground and picnic tables. Most of the schools brought lunches and the children had a great time in the outdoors with the playground and the animals. I would like to add that it is very evident all Carol's animals are well cared for. There were hundreds of children that came to the Pumpkin Patch this year, and they all really had a great time.

Okay, if you have children under 5 they will love this. Any person above that, and yourself, will be bored out of your skull. I really think this should be pointed out more clearly in their advertising. The petting zoo is just a walk through mini barn where you feed animals the same stuff they have in their food bowls, so they don't want it. They all look as if they've lost the will to live and avoid interaction with the children. The only animals the children can get in and touch are the ducks and baby chicks. They run for cover as soon as people approach so the workers drag them out of the shelter to hand over to the kids who drop them immediately because if anyone has ever held a terrified baby chick then you know that it's not pleasant. The games are for children under 5. The haunted house is a black taped section of the barn, maybe two stables wide, eh. The worst part is the rudeness of the staff. Not friendly at all. Mostly teen girls with chips on their shoulders and completely detached from what they're supposed to be doing, especially with the pony rides. It's definitely in need of some stepping up to par.
