There are no more horses on the farm. The most fabulous opportunity came along for Hot Spot (the last of the horses and the one I thought might be around for a while cause he couldn't just go to anyone!) henceforth known as Hennessy--yes after the cognac. He will have the best of everything from now on--a lovely field and a sweet mare as a companion. His work load will be light and he will summer in Maine and Winter in the Carolina's. That will be much more to his liking as he was a PA boy until he was 11 and needed his heavy PJs when the temp dipped low as it does often during winter in Maine.
Here he is in his new home in western Maine taken near the end of April 2015.
At the new Old Grassy Farm (formally known as Red Pony Farm) we will focus on back yard beef, Corn Grass fermented barley and squash fed pork (no twinkies and day old bread!), grass fed grain finished lamb, and maybe chickens we'll see.
The goal is to have no critters in the barn to care for during winter, so that we can travel, and play and rest like real gentlemen farmers should --all winter.
I will tell you the story of the very bad bully boy who tastes amazing next.
