A Visit to the Horse Farm
Brian and I got a really nice treat today. We were killing some time between a Doctor's visit and dinner we decided to stop by the home of a friend of Brian's. His friend runs a horse farm and takes care of the property for a man who only lives here part time. He has a few other homes in other states. This place is actually only a few miles from our house and it's the first time I've seen it other than from the country road that runs along the front of it.
This place was amazing! I honestly don't know how big it is by the numbers but they use vehicles to get around the entire place because it's too much to walk. The property sits on rolling hills and they have about 30 horses that live there. It's divided into several sections by big white fences so you'll have about three or four horses in one particular area. The property goes even further into the woods behind. We had a beautiful walk on the grounds and got see every horse.
We were also allowed to tour the apartment that is above the riding area (not sure what it's really called). But it's a super big arena where they can exercise the horses indoors. The apartment was almost as beautiful as the grounds.
I wish we could have went inside the main house because I've been told that it's one of a kind. It's actually been featured in magazines.
I didn't want to post pictures of the apartment or the home because I wanted to respect the privacy of the owner. But I sure did get some beautiful horse pictures I can share!
This was definitely a beautiful way to wait for the dinner hour!
