On May 18, 2016, from 9 am to 12 pm, at the Linda Nolen Learning Center in Alabaster, Alabama, Libby Shackelford, owner of Carousel O Breeds, and leader of the Shelby County 4-H Horse Club, will delight the students for the 20th Annual Cowboy Day by bringing horses!
Every year the 4-Hers haul their horses, about 15 or so, out to the Learning Center to lead the horses around and have the students interact with the large animals. The experience is well-received by the students who eagerly look forward to the annual event.
For more information and to volunteer, call Libby Shackelford at 205-533-0432.
On May 2, 2016, at 5:30 pm, the Shelby County 4-H Horse Club will tour the barn and property at Hillock Farm in Calera, Alabama. Ms. Libby has been a leader of the Horse Club for many years, supporting and developing kids in the ag and equine lifestyle. Outings like this help the children realize what goes in to running an equine business and gives them insight for future ag-based careers.
For information about joining the Shelby County 4-H Horse Club or about riding lessons at Carousel O Breeds Farm, call Libby Shackelford at 205-533-0432.
