It is not something I ever thought I would do. I was 64 years old, single, and had never kept horses at home. And yet, the dream was there.
It was quite a journey to get here, but I did it, and I’m still pinching myself. I am so happy to be here, and feel so very lucky to live on such a special piece of land.
I was offered horses before the ink was dry on the sale, but I’ve been going slowly. Lots to learn, and much observing and listening to discover what wants to happen here.
Our farm family has grown by two kittens, and we hope for two Poitou donkeys to join us after the first of the year.
The Butterfly Cottage has held its first day of healing, and we anticipate workshops, clinics, and classes to happen as well.
Our covered arena and barn need some modification for riding as well as clinic purposes. We hope to have light, airy stalls with gravel runs where clinic participants can bring their horses. This also would allow bodywork clients to bring their horses for periods of more intensive care.
I know the farm has a name, but I don’t know what it is yet. I know that good things will happen here—they already are—and I look forward to welcoming visitors.
