Tal­is­man Farm plans beach cleanup

Record Observer - - News -

GRASONVILLE — Vol­un­teers will gather at 9 a.m. April 22 and 23, wear­ing gloves and bear­ing shov­els, to help clean up the beach at Tal­is­man Farm, home of Tal­is­man Ther­a­peu­tic Rid­ing.

The plan­ta­tion fea­tures 3.5 miles of water­front prop­erty and 350 feet of beach. Ch­e­sa­peake Bay tides bring with them a va­ri­ety of de­bris from pass­ing boaters, which needs to be re­moved for the safety of horses, riders and vis­i­tors.

Vol­un­teers will be joined by, of course, a horse. Catcher’s Dream Domino, a beau­ti­ful Paso Fino pinto horse, will be there to help. Owner Jonathan Shaw plans to ride her to the water­front at low tide (around 1:15 p.m.) to as­sist in the re­moval of larger items, like bar­rels and tires.

“She’s small, but strong,” said Shaw. He said he will use a grap­pling hook and at­tach ropes to Domino to get the job done.
