Bloomin' Stars 4H


 Bloomin' Stars 4H

Currently we are not participating in Kennebec County 4H, unfortunatly the openess of practicing Natural Horsemanship is proving to be too much for the head staff to welcome at this time. Possibly in the future when saftey is the main concern for 4H we will be welcomed back as a group.




 Bi-weekly or Monthly meetings addressing all aspects of being around horses, goats, dogs, community and more.
