The New Home – 2014

August 29, 2014

At the beginning of the month (or more accurately, the end of last month), we moved into a new house.  Its an older farm house on a 70some acre farm.  The house is down a super long rolling driveway and is surrounded by hay and corn fields and a little woods.  There are apple, pear and peach trees, berry bushes and tons of ground cherries.  There is a woodstove, well water, tons of privacy and more space.

And the best part, the ponies get to move in!

Its been a month and the fencing is about to get under way.  But its also a three day weekend and I have pony plans for Sunday.  So Rich and I decided to bring the ponies over for the long weekend and put them in their temporary paddock in the over grown yard.  We picked them up last night, set up everything and I took Simon for a ride and explored the property some.

Poe screamed his head off when Simon and I were out of view.

We trotted along the trails through the woods, cantered around the corn and freshly cut hay fields and wondered through the tall grass in between.  We stopped for peaches, apples and pears along the way, and brought a few back for Poe.

When I left the house at 5:30 this morning, they met me at the fence and seemed quite happy. I Smiled.
