As Luck Would Have It....

We are so very lucky.

We dodged a big bullet this weekend.

That crazy Nor-easter storm that blew threw the northeast all but missed us.

We had a light dusting of snow, which by yesterday was practically gone.

We were able to get a lot of work done on our picnic grove.
Right now the area is cleared and a shale pad is down.
Construction begins this week, and then we will have the shale covered with stone dust,
and wood chips.

Hubbs and Tim worked hard to clean up the woods...
sending all of the limbs through the chipper.
By the end of the afternoon, they were exhausted!
This is how I drove them back to the farmhouse....

with Sammy racing the gator!

The horses' dry-lot is looking better than ever and the horses are enjoying
the fresh bedding....
nap time has not been this comfortable in a long time! 

Ginger and MaryAnn like all the extra activity around the farm,
not to mention the warmer temperatures.
Their pasture is still snow covered, however, as it is in the orchard...
on the north slope of the farm... our own little Siberia.

We are once again above freezing,
so Sadie finds the nearest snow pile on which to lay...
she knows how to stay cool!


  1. You guys lucked out for sure. We were slammed with snow. I took a before and after and posted it. If you have a minute, check out the amount of snow we got. The horses are enjoying their bedding. It must feel like a mattress to them. The picnic area is looking good.

  2. Those horses look pretty comfortable in their comfy new bed in the dry lot . . . total, how many animals at Bee Haven?

  3. Oh my goodness....
