The farm is at full capacity with more than 100 horses.

The homecoming event is the farm’s largest fundraiser and all of the money helps keep the horses comfortable.

People who attended could participate in an auction and get a free tour.

“You can feed them carrots, get up really close to them, so that’s really nice to see them in this wonderful element,” said Christine Sanchez, Visitor.

Old Friends Farm was founded in 2003.
