Like fun-size candy bars, miniature horses are compact, sweet, and worth at least two Fun Dips in trade come Halloween. Dole out some sugar with today’s Groupon: for $13, you get two tickets to Land of Little Horses Farm Park in Gettysburg (up to a $27.90 value).
Land of Little Horses Farm Park awes visitors with pint-size miniature horses and a touchable menagerie of llamas, alpacas, donkeys, goats, and chickens. Each day brings a brand-new schedule of events for the farm's talented denizens, encouraging families and animal lovers of all ages to make tenderhearted contact with furry farm life. Visitors learn about the farm’s history and the daily ins and outs of maintaining a playground for its fuzzy stars. Goats demonstrate their generosity by producing rich, creamy milk for the farm's dairy workers, and mini horses enjoy grooming and luxurious sponge baths, sans the rubber ducky. The magnificent equine miniatures flaunt their finesse in arena performances, pulling off charming tricks and height-defying feats. Adults and children alike get up close during petting-zoo time, showing farm-dwelling critters just how well humans have mastered the hug.
Although not included in this Groupon, hungry bipeds can score sandwiches, sides, and tasty morsels at the Hobby Horse Cafe. Land of Little Horses also fills a gift shop with cards, souvenirs, plush animals, and more, for less animate but decidedly cuddle-able mementos of the visit.
