Home to a group of Franciscan Poor Clare Nuns, this venue features beautiful miniature horses, as well as a variety of handmade ceramic items in the gift shop. Stop by for a visit and pet these wonderful horses, browse in the gift shop, or spend a few quiet moments in the Chapel.
very laid back and casual we took 5 grandchildren and felt free to just walk around the grounds and enjoy the cute and sweet miniature horses. Fees are very reasonable and the sisters were very pleasant.
My wife and I were visiting Austin, Texas and made a side trip to College Station. Saw a brochure about these miniature horses and decided to return via Brenham to see them first hand. We arrived about 1:15pm (check hours)and admired and petted the friendly and curious tiny well-formed creatures. At 1:30 entered by the front gate (don't miss the posted 11 comandments, the sisters may be cloistered, but they have a wonderful sense of humor). The gift shop is the first stop to pay a nominal admittance fee. The gentleman that works for the Sisters is a warm and welcoming individual that provides information about the animals and the mission of the Sisters. We toured the grounds, saw about 10 of the horses including a 7 day old foal (talk about small) and enjoyed a video about miniature horses. We also visited the Sisters' lovely chapel located nearby on their 39 acre farm. This is a great place to visit and I recommend it for both adults and families.
