Birthday Parties, Baby or Bridal Showers, Celebrations, Special or Corporate Events, Themed Parties, etc.
Either at our farm/barn venue OR at your venue, we can host your party with our trained livestock.
WoodStock Stables has an onsite indoor home that has been converted to accommodate parties of any kind, including a full kitchen that can be used by you or your caterers at your event.
For outdoor fun and food, we have either a large propane grill or small charcoal grill that we offer for your use, in case you want to cook outside with your guests, at no extra charge.
We can also cater your party and we offer western comfort foods as our menu items, so just ask what our current menu is and we can provide a quote for that, if you want us to cook for you and your guests.
There is no extra charge to utilize any of the trained livestock at your party if you use our venue. If we are transporting animals to your location, that naturally creates an increase in the charge per hour, depending upon the number of animals that you wish to use.
We offer the use of our donkey, pony, sheep or full-sized horses; just depends upon what type of party you are planning, and we can always discuss the details.
Right now during the pandemic, we are offering a discount of our normal party rate of $100.00 per hour to only $75.00 per hour, at a 2-hour minimum. The party can be at our venue or yours for that price, unless you want more than 2 animals at your location, which would be higher due to transport and wrangling of the animals at an offsite location.
Our pony can be used as a "unicorn" and our donkey can be used to play our "Pin-the-Tail-on-the-Live-Donkey" game. We also offer educational games for the children that can be played with the livestock because they are trained.
We can also have "story time" inside the home, if you wish, as a part of the party, where a western character reads to the children and answers questions about the animals.
For themed parties, we offer "Shrek and Donkey," the "Black Sheep of the Family (gag theme)," "Unicorn" Birthday Parties, etc. Whatever you can think of, we can do for you!
Any two of our livestock (we have sheep, a donkey, a pony and 3 full-sized horses): $100.00 per hour; minimum of 2 hours.
Any riders on the pony must weigh 60 lbs. or less. Our standard-sized donkey can also be ridden by children while being lead by a handler.
Minimum is two hours and maximum is four hours, if the animals are transported to your location, due to travel preparation and the stress of travel on the animals.
If you book for more than two hours, a $50.00 deposit is required. For onsite parties, we can rent to you our popcorn machine and the rate is $45.00.
We use Square to complete all financial transactions with debit/credit cards, but we also accept cash, of course. Cash is preferred because we don't like to pass along those pesky merchant fees to our customers. We do NOT accept checks, unless we are hired by an established business entity.
If we come to you, please keep ALL house pets inside your home for their safety during the encounter. If you come to our venue for your party, please keep any dogs leashed at all times because donkeys view them as predators and will probably go after the dog because they are guardian animals naturally, and we don't want anyone's pet hurt. Thank You!
