The Minis Are Here!
We would like to introduce the newest members of the Walk on Water family! Our minis are here! Introducing Charmer, a brown 30" tall gelding who certainly lives up to his name, and Gwinney, a 37" mare. Come over and say hi!
Special thanks to Midget Minis in Malabar for our newest family members.
Walk on Water was blessed to be chosen by Community Counts to have 40 teens adults from around Brevard County ( including Cocoa Police department) to serve on the ranch completing 7 projects. Community Counts is organized each year by Chad Adkins of Christ Central in which a home or organization is chosen to be painted or helped by volunteers. We had electric fence and three pastures separated, Rocks removed from slab, Pepper trees removed, horse game built, front entrance beautified, garden area near trellis cleaned, Ant hills aniliated, Shed cleaned out, metal gates put away, wood stacked, and bushes trimmed. Thank you to Chad and all the volunteers who helped pitch in.
