Re: “Spence's farm: no oversight

I don't understand why anyone would need to be involved when the farm has obviously met safety regulations and had happy customers?

Re: “Staffers, parents concerned over kids' safety at Spence's Farm

To me it is funny that Marshall and Heather (a couple) have been interviewrd and commented on this article as from what I heard they were angry that Marshall was let go for having too many staff members and that position not being needed. I have worked at the farm intermittently as I am away at school during the year but keep in touch. I also know Heather has very little knowledge with the horses and wouldn't have a right to comment as she worked in the house not around the horses. We were always taught to walk in front of the horse or close behind with our hand on them to let the horse know we were there.. also receiving less impact from a kick then if you were a bit further.
please look at all of the stories and sides.. many staff members left together and NOW this article comes out... a bit ironic that this has been a kids farm for over 20years with no reported issues before and plenty of happy families and staff.
I'm just saying please keep in mind that many people have learned and enjoyed great things from Spence. I never saw him act strange or put a kid in danger. I think the ex staff members should handle their issues in a much more mature and civil way...
