Our New ‘Hood and Breaking Ground on the Barn
We drove out to our new farm today as it was the official first day of work on the barn. Jason and I should have each had ceremonial shovels and a yellow ribbon to cut and made it into a Ground Breaking ceremony. Today the earth work was done to prepare the barn pad. Jason also had very specific ideas about how he wanted the drainage around the barn set up as well, so some surveying was done and grade markers placed.

Bear accompanied us today. He wasn’t too happy about being on a leash (technically it wasn’t a leash but a lead rope!).
Our neighbor at our new farm, who is also our barn builder, kindly offered to bush hog our pastures for us and he was doing so when we drove up today. The grass was as tall as I am in the un-mowed areas even though it had been bush hogged a month ago. Jason is loving the soil on this farm, it grows grass like crazy!
Look at all of that lovely soil!
When we were done at the farm we took the scenic route home and just drove around our new community. We’ve done this many times but I always enjoy it. We are located right in the area that is known as “hunt country.” This area is home to more than one foxhunt and there are lots of lovely horse farms around, some big and some small. Below are some pictures that we took today as we drove around. We are really looking forward to being part of this community!
