My five this month are all from one of my final walk abouts at the farm that I rode at. I have been surprised at my own tears & the saddest that I feel in the farm being sold - especially to an unknown in our circle of the horse world. I have SO many wonderful memories from my time at the farm. Even though my horse, Joshua, has been gone many years, I continued to ride at the farm through part boarding or leasing a horse there. It is time to say goodbye. I give you five of the farm, although I could have easily posted 500 photos.
The front stone wall that was part of a cross country jump.
The pond which I never swam in but several boarders did - the people not the horses. Snapping turtles lived in this pond!
The indoor arena - thankful on so many rainy or snowy days.
The outdoor sand riding ring, shared by jumpers & dressage riders alike until two years ago, when we got a grass dressage ring - the jumpers were glad not to have to share.
Turn Out paddock, one of 10.
And now my Take Three Thursday - more of the farm:
In the beautiful Autumn light even the manure pile looks good (we bedded the horses on peat moss):
The flower boxes outside each stall
The beautiful, but empty stalls
