🌸 Meet Me Monday! Meet Snow White! She's a few weeks shy of turning ONE! In the past year she has really enjoyed making so many friends during birthday party petting zoos, scheduled farm life experiences here at the ranch and ESPECIALLY during the busy month of October at Bates Nut Farm . She has such a beautiful coat of fur. Snow White is such a perfect name for our princess of all the bunnies. Hope you enjoy your Easter week and have some Easter Bunny memories made this weekend.

Wednesday Worker Appreciation Day... Meet Kristy~ a hard workin part of Snow's since the Margaret Snow owned it. Kristy worked full time, so she’d help when she could. In 2012, Kristy medically retired from law enforcement, now she’s able to have more time with Snow's. She dedicates her entire month of October to the non-stop pony rides & petting zoo we have at Bates Nut Farm Kristy has ridden her whole life. She grew up in Bonita, where she had her first pony. Tiny Tim was personally delivered to her by her mom, on horse back...or...pony back? Either way, her mom, Marlieta says it was the BEST $50 she ever spent. Kristy became a barrel racer & proudly took home ribbons. She eventually stopped the shows, though continues to trail ride even today. She plans on doing sorting & cowboy obstacle challenges. When asked if she has any horses & other animals Kristy confirmed, “I’ve never not owned a horse & I plan on owning one until the day I die. Currently, I have 6 horses & 4 dogs. I have 2 horses that are retired, due to injuries & just live the pasture life. My daughter has 2, her trail pony & her barrel horse. My two boys, Aspen & Archer, are my big colorful Blue Roan & Bay Roan. I trained them all myself & they’re still a work in progress & have potential to do whatever I feel like doing." Kristy's favorite part of working with Snow's? “My favorite part working with Snows is the pure joy it’s brought to so many children & their families, including my own. Being able to watch kids as their eyes light up from seeing a baby bunny or a baby goat, or taking their first pony ride has always made my heart smile. Our girls being with baby animals, learning to handle animals, helping with the business, riding ponies before they could walk, learning about the circle of life & much more. We made memories with Snow’s that’ll be with us until our last days. Kristy’s favorite memory would be a 45 minute reverse haul down a driveway for an event. The owner’s cook helped navigate her & she only took out one plant. Today she can haul a trailer no problem, thanks to her mom teaching her. #snowsponyrides #SPRKristy #pony #sandiegoevents #partyplanner #workerappreciation Rhiannon Huppert
It's a BRAND NEW MONTH! Did you know Snow’s Pony Rides are at Bates Nut Farm EVERY first Saturday of the month? Whether it's your little rider's VERY FIRST pony ride OR...maybe their 17th. Either way, it's a fun-filled day for sure. We'll be there with bells and reins on. You can also book that special event or birthday party with Snow’s, where we travel to you. We have bookings available throughout February and would enjoy being part of your memory making. Hop on our website, (link is in the bio,) to see all the different experiences Snow’s Pony Rides has to offer. We look forward to a month filled with great moments here on the farm and also with all you and your little riders. #snowsponyrides #snowsponyridesandfarmaninals #snowsponyridesandfarmanimalswithexotics #pettingzoo #farmanimals #farmanimalrescue #farmanimalsanctuary #farmanimalexperience #PonyRideBirthday #UnicornBirthday #PrincessBirthday #CowboyBirthday #SanDiegoOutdoorEntertainment #SanDiegoEntertainment #SanDiegoSmallBusiness #WomanOwnedBusiness #SupportSmallBusinesses #SupportLocal #SnowsDaze #PonyCraze #February #BatesNutFarm
When is your next MUD RUN ,. Family members are anxious to run !!!!!!!!!
I took my kids to Bates Nut Farm over the weekend for the first time and it was sooooo much fun. I've never been before! My boys had a great time feeding the animals at their farm zoo. Plus, they do free tractor rides with Santa! Highly recommend this as a family outing, especially because it won't break the bank. What did you do this weekend? -Dorothy
When is Christmas in the Valley this year? It’s one of our favorite holiday traditions.
One thing I love about San Diego is that you don’t have to go far to enjoy time off. I’m a big proponent of staycations because it cuts out the hassle of travel but you still get to experience a getaway! We took a few days off to create memories with the girls. We booked a suite at the Welk Resorts. The girls enjoyed the splash pad, swimming, staying up too late, making a mess and jumping on the bed. We fed animals at Bates Nut Farm, enjoyed pie and apple picking in Julian, visited the San Diego Zoo Safari Park for wild animals and a fun petting zoo, enjoyed a nice dinner at Vintana wine + dine one night but balanced it out with In-N-Out Burger the next day. Soon our adventures will be as a family of 5 but we are planning one last getaway before our baby boy arrives in the winter!! It will be another staycation since it’s so close to my due date. Any suggestions on what we should do?
