Known for their short, muscular stature, sweet temperament, and distinctively clipped manes, norwegian fjord horses are ideally suited to don glitzy bows and garlands for holiday-photo opportunities. After a 10-minute ride atop the cuddly equine, guests can swirl a candy cane in their hot cocoa and visit the petting farm’s other creatures, which include a miniature donkey, lambs, goats, pigs, bunnies, and even a traditional Christmas emu. This Groupon is valid throughout the month of December, Fridays through Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.<p>
Morris's Shadow Mountain Stables
At the age of 9, Bonnie Morris began a lifelong relationship with horses. By age 10, she was the proud guardian of her own colt and at 22, she set the wheels in motion to open her own training center. Today at Morris's Shadow Mountain Stables, she and her staff continue to bond riders and steeds within a five-acre haven that's beyond the reaches of the outside world and its persistent chorus of honking bikes. They foster interspecies rapport through various types of instruction, including lessons and summer camps that teach showmanship and horse care. Trail rides mosey through nearby woods, meadows, and grasslands overlooking Mount Rainier. Birthday parties include horseback rides or visits to the petting farm. The petting farm facilitates up-close encounters with fuzzy ferrets, giant bunnies, mini horses, and baby goats as well as the stable's fleet of horses and resident cow, Henry, who also answers to, "Look! A cow!"
