This is a great thing to do with the family during a day-trip to Brenham. You can tour several different areas where the horses are located including the barn and pastures. Afterwards, visit the art barn where you can choose a piece of pottery made by the Poor Clare Nuns (who run the horse farm) to paint or take home to paint later.
They also have a small gift shop and sno-cones available. Kids will love petting the horses and taking photos with them. There is an outdoor picnic area and you can bring your own food and drinks (a vending machine is also available) so it's a great stop for lunch during the afternoon.
The Monastery Miniature Horse Farm is home to approximately 60 miniature horses. The foals are born in the Spring and are weaned at four months of age.
