Diamond Creek Farm threw it's third annual open house on June 3, at their Wellsville, Pa., location. “The Open House is a way for us to welcome the community and all the fans to our farm,” said Diamond Creek’s Adam Bowden. “Many people never get a chance to see what happens behind the scenes at a breeding farm, or they are curious about what goes on here when they see all the fences and barns from the road.” The day was a huge success with well over 400 attendees, largely from the community, and with some visitors from as far as North Carolina.

Working on a breeding farm isn’t all just horses and barn work. It takes a lot of different people, doing a variety of different tasks to make everything run smoothly. One of the very important people in this puzzle is Jake Ziegler, our maintenance manager of 3 years. Jake helps keep the farm in good shape. He handles everything from snow removal and landscaping, to vehicle repair, to even large building projects on the farm, such as remodeling the breeding shed to redoing the office front porch.

Today should have been the greatest day of their lives, but the Mulinix family hardly had any time to enjoy it. After the race, they still had to take care of “Rock” as Ellen affectionately called A Rocknroll Dance, taking him to the farm where he would spend the night before the 11 hour drive back to Ohio.
