Happy Friday everyone!
We are enjoying beautiful weather here on the farm, with low humidity and powder puff clouds. The butterflies are absolutely amazing in the hay fields right now. I’ve never seen so many!
It looks like the perfect week for us to begin renovations to the outdoor ring. You may have noticed that we removed all the jumps. That was step one. This week will begin the removal of all the material in the ring. Then, new drainage and sub footing will be installed, followed by new all-weather, low-dust footing. Exciting! Please stay tuned for “before” photos and more updates as we go along.
On a side note, sending congratulations all the way to Vermont to Zivago, owned by Kiana Fiore, and ridden by Mary Lisa Leffler, for their 3rd place finish in the Hunter Derby, which included the highest second round score! Way to go!
Thanks to Sheryl Sutherby for this wonderful photo of the pair!
