Happy Birthday Andrew!

Dear Andrew, I wish you a very Happy Birthday!
Be happy and do not worry!
You have lot of friends at Spirit!


Friday seems to be weather OK for horse care, and maybe some lounging...Saturday is still too wet and cold on forecast, so lessons will be canceled.
Stay warm and dry :)
Thank you!

Dear volunteers, please, note that weather forecast for Saturday is "wintry mix "; " Ice Pellets
70% chance of precipitation", and most likely that all activities, including training, at the field will be canceled.
Final decision you will be able to find here or at the Spirit's FB , Friday evening.
I apologize for any inconvenience, and thank you for understanding.
If that happen, please, just proceed next week to come as you scheduled and new volunteers will start working together and continue your education with mentors on site.
